So, after six months of back-and-forth negotiating with the awesome guys at *shameless plug for my new friends* O'Clock in Madrid, I finally pulled the trigger and got this absolute beauty (and a long-time dream watch of mine):
What could it be?
Oh snap! A Universal Geneve Tri Compax!
Up close and personal
It even came with this cool book of authorised service centres, complete with a bunch of agents listed in countries that don't even exist any more. Thankfully, should I need to get this baby serviced in the British Colony of Southern Rhodesia, then I'm all set.
And there she is on the wrist, keeping a wonderfully inaccurate 10 +/- seconds a day after servicing.
It's actually really hard to this watch justice with pictures, the vividness of the blue second hand and the sub-dial hands, along with the richness of the blue and gold in the moon-phase don't seem to translate too well to photos. Ah well, I guess I'll just have to keep enjoying it on my wrist then!
