If you don't know, I tend to enjoy orange G's. Which also means I'm into the MIRO and G-Rescue series.
I've been after this last one for a year now. They just don't seem to pop up that often.
Out of nowhere it popped up on Rakuten of all places! No bidding, just one for sale. The weird part is the translator used the word "mint". Not "like new in box" or "perfect" or anything else. I was worried. And the pics weren't that great. In for a penny in for a pound.
It took 2 days just to find out if i got it before FJ finally said it was my purchase which got it! i doubt it was up for even 3hrs.
I had planned ahead as the my previous two MIRO's came in pretty well hammered. I worked with Keith @ tiktox to get spare resin for this one as I was noticing a pattern on my purchases.
Believe it or not, even when it arrived on island, the local post office put up the notice "not deliverable to address" and they never even tried! I went to the post office and it was already in the "Back to Sender" area! This has been my most difficult watch to get and I almost lost in the last mile!!!
MINT!!!!!!!! If I could choose any of them to come in perfect, it is this one. Needless to say I am very happy!
If you know, then you know I've got an old thread to resurrect and complete. There is actually another thread before that I need this watch for as well. Been wearing it all day, and looking forward to wearing it quite a bit. Especially as I have spare resin. .....
