    Some nice watches there. I saw a nice chrono on eBay. 44mm and pretty good price.

    Finally have this back on my wrist. Alpiner Manufacture Flyback Chrono. Just love this piece. Classic, crisp panda'esque dial, beautifully executed case lines, nifty in-house movement and my only flyback. This is why I'm selling my Race For Water.

    Not sure why I'm not seeking more attention on my Race For Water sale. Such a nice piece. Suggestions/comments re: price welcome. Figured given package OEM bracelet and lack of widespread availability was pretty reasonable but seems not.

    Having just watched Casino Royale decided it necessary to have a Vesper. Sadly no Omega Seamaster 300 to go with it so had to innovate.

    Manufacture Flyback on ToxicNATO ShizNit...

    It's a beautiful piece - very striking. Looking forward to your thoughts. Feel free to throw
    me a PM.

    PS. Don't let initial opinions of the strap cloud your judgement. It's stiff out of the box but quickly conforms to your wrist and loosens up. It's very nice, and it is in fact genuine alligator rather than stamped leather. It should have shipped with an Alpina deployant, though. You might want to consider ordering a butterfly from them or third party. If you're not averse to the price (US$50) RIOS clasp is absolutely beautiful.

    I'm speaking from experience with the Race For Water. I ordered my Flyback in bracelet.

    Thanks for the tips about the alligator strap, I already have the Alpina Alpiner 4 Chronograph (non-Manufacture version, pictured below) on the matching bracelet. Btw your photography skills are absolutely amazing and your review detailing the Magrette MPP inspired a buddy of mine to purchase one. If they're not paying you to be their professional photographer they should be, since your post was likely responsible for selling out their MPP production. I also read your post on watch photography processing and was quite impressed, I never realized all the work that was involved in tweaking each photo to produce such exceptional watch pics. Thanks again, you're a major asset to this forum!

    Hah - you flatter me, sir. It's definitely an enjoyable past-time to shoot. Put the Flyback on a ToxicNATO's Shiznit today and really looks sharp. I have a couple of PhenomeNATO's in the pipeline which will look great as well.
