you guys are a SERIOUSLY BAD influence on my wallet. but my Heritage says hello anyway. and i love it! the bezel distinguishes itself enough from just being another sub homage, and i love the dial. im a sucker for vintage looks. curiously though, when i unscrewed the crown to set the time and date, i noticed the time moved forward only when i turned the crown counter clockwise, which is opposite to what is normal. anyone else encountered this? I dont see this as a detriment in anyway, just strange as it goes against muscle memory.

hmm... i just tried the crown on another watch and it does turn anti clockwise to move the time forward. i feel a bit silly now.

Well after one too many beers on a saturday afternoon I ordered my first Squale! When I woke up this morning the wife asked me if I realized what I had ordered last night? I was instantly filled with excitement although the look on her face was not the same! Needless to say no regrets here can't wait to share some pictures!

This must be your first ETA 2824-2 powered watch, right ? The crown turns anti-clockwise to move the hands clockwise on an ETA 2824-2 as opposed to most other movements, like Seikos and such.
No need to freak out !
Enjoy your new baby.
