    Grail Arrived

    Hi, after the wait of a week, one of my grails have finally arrived! It's a vintage Roamer Stingray Chrono.

    I always wanted this watch from the first time that I saw James wearing it. It is an awesome watch. Really hefty on the wrist, but doesn't look rediculous even on my 6 " wrists!

    Have used some of James photos and some of my poor efforts also. My photos really don't do the watch justice. It has to be seen to be believed!







    It even has the Roamer logo in the glass:





    Let me know if you like it!

    Very nice. It looks like its in excellent condition.


    Understeer is when you hit the wall with your front end. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with your rear end. Horsepower is how hard you hit the wall. Torque is how far you move the wall.

    You've got great taste in chronos IMHO. I love this Roamer, and I see you've got a Sturmanskie listed in your collection. I love the Ocean and the Soviet Air Force chronos.

    I'm not sure I'm ready to start collecting them, but I definitely am drawn to slightly retro chronos -- this is great.. and I've found myself looking at Seiko bullheads lately, too...

    Thanks for sharing your photos!
