    Inbound.............

    Thanks to the Herculean efforts of a new friend in Japan I was able to acquire this Ltd. Edition (#001) Campanola made specially for only one Japanese Retailer.

    This is my second Campanola numbered 001. I'll post more pictures when it arrives.
    For now, the wait is sweet !

    Wow!!,

    This looks really sweet, the dials are wonderful, and what I have seen from the quartz movements this is certainly high-end stuff.

    Enjoy, and yes please, more pics when the beauty arrives.

    Cheers,

    Daddel.

    Wow, that second one is very nice indeed! I love the subtle shades of color on the dial.

    I'm sorry guys but to me these watches are the epitome of bling. Each to his own I suppose.

    Thanks Guys.........

    Here's a bigger picture of the hand lacquered (Aizu) Grand Comp. that was the first to arrive yesterday. Sorry the picture's not better. I'll try for more later.

    This is #1 of only 20 pcs made for the Odakyu Dept. Store Watch Fair in Japan. I was able to get it due to a heroic effort by Robert Logie (aka Roba) an avid Watch Collector who lives in Japan.

    The Watch is entirely hand made and decorated in a seperate Campanola facility owned by Citizen. The hand lacquered dial is done by seasoned Japanese Artisans in the old tradition. Each one is unique.

    They're not for everyone, but they really 'speak' to me. I started collecting them 3 years ago and I now wear nothing else. I hope you enjoy the picture.

    Kurt

    That's a cool watch. Looks like it's hard to photograph and probably nicer in person. I'm still knocked out by the second one though.

    Wonderful!!! ,

    I do not have a quartz watch at the moment, but the ecodrive version of this Campanola is certainly on my wishlist.

    Enjoy your collection,

    Cheers,

    Daddel.
