kind gents, i am very pleased to announce that i received my TRU BLU this past wknd and it is fantastic. easily exceeded my already high expectations from the pictures and research i had done. these are very beautiful timepieces. i can't stop looking at it. my very observant wife noticed that i was staring at the watch longer than one normally would to identify the time, so she asked, 'What time is it?' my reply, 'I don't know dear. Doesn't your phone have a clock function?'.
anyway, my research may have been a bit flawed (my fault, of course) for i had thought the case diameter was 42mm. well, that was for the Cronoscopio. the TRU BLU was made with the Cronoscopio Mark II case. not that i'm complaining - but it is MASSIVE. and that is a good thing, because it is a watch with undeniable 'presence'.
i'm very thankful for the kind gentleman who sold me the watch. really cool guy. sent the watch to me 'for inspection' and i didn't even have to send a single penny. i just signed a piece of paper that says i will pay for the agreed upon amount 'upon inspection' and he shipped it overnight. it is refreshing to know that there are people out there like him. he definitely made a good impression on me and i couldn't be happier.
a quick question. i'm curious to know what suggestions any of you might have regarding sizing the kodiak strap. i have the strap at the smallest setting (small-ish wrist), and i would prefer it to be a little more snug, with no play, since the watch has quite the weight (my left arm feels lighter when i remove the watch, first time after three days ).
should i: a) punch a hole b) buy a different strap - Toshi looks good, but I'm drawn to GSD
thanks in advance.
