    Picture From the Generous Heart of "drhr"

    A few days ago, drhr held a small "contest" of sorts to commemorate his 1000th post. By random draw, I happened to be selected for the prize. For this, I am very grateful to drhr and hope to see him post many thousands more posts.

    As I told him, this came at quite a big surprise because I only entered for the fun of it but what came of it was far more than I expected. I had recently sold my '69 King Seiko in order to get my girlfriend a nice watch to be able to wear to work and to travel(to Costa Rica) with. So I had this Seiko sized hole in the heart but I wasn't quite at the point where I could fill it with a Grand Seiko or replacement King Seiko. The beautiful Seiko offered by drhr was a SNZG15K1. Quite a robust piece and far more stout than I expected after owning a vintage Seiko automatic.

    For your eyes, I present my new daily wearer, the Seiko SNZG15K1 as offered by a very generous drhr:

    Thank you, drhr.

    Here's hoping that I make it to 1000 posts so I can make someone's collection a little more whole as well.

    Very cool! I think it's great that you posted this. I like these acts of generosity, and it's cool to see them commemorated. It's like when someone posts a "which watch should I buy?" thread. I always want them to finish the post with the result, and not leave the thread incomplete.
    That Seiko, to me, is a darn near perfect example of a daily wear automatic. Wear it in good health!

    But more importantly, how was the trip to Costa Rica, and what watch did your gf get?

    Hey, I don't know how many people will get the reference, but I like watching frye and leila travel space too!

    Well, I had to work this summer in order to really kill some student loans, but she is there with a good friend that I trust and she's sending back tons of great pics. So, it's like I'm getting to enjoy it vicariously for now.

    As for the watch that I got for her, to wear on the trip I got her a Casio G-shock so I knew it would stand up to the rigors. For her to enjoy more often and to use for work I got her a Bulova 96R122. I got her a Bulova because her late grandfather used to wear this really old Bulova that her mom still has and I've admired every time I visit her mom's house. I thought maybe it would mean more to both her and her late grandfather that she wear the same that he did.
