    Incoming!!

    Hello everyone,

    Here is my first new acquisition of 2014;

    It is designed by Fromanteel of Amsterdam, Holland and is Swiss Made. 'The Amsterdam' model is also available as a chronograph but I already have a couple of chronos' so I chose this model. I personally like the arabic numbers and the unique curved date window. The movement is a Ronda Caliber 6004.D, 5 jewel, gold plated EOL which is repairable (gasp! I hope I never have to mention that again). Sapphire Crystal, quick release system cognac leather strap 20mm wide, 42mm polished stainless steel case, 5 ATM, 10.5mm high. The watch came in a very nice leather case which in turn came in a burlap bag with a wax seal......a different and nice touch. Another unique feature are the coordinates of the center of Amsterdam on the dial. Why did I choose this watch you may ask? I was born in Holland and am proud of my heritage and wanted a watch that, even though Swiss Made, compliments my heritage.

    My apologies for the poor photos and smudges on the case back....in my haste to download and transfer pics I forgot to clean it again.....for the umpteenth time in the last few minutes!

    This fine looking timepiece is a very welcome addition to my collection. Yup, I'm a happy camper!

    No...I did not know the coordinates on your watch refer to the center of Amsterdam.....Just learned something.

    I like it very much, even the large date opening, usually I don't like them but something about that one really works for me! Congrats.

    They've even got a little sense of humour. Oh, those Netherlanders.

    Nice clean design! Yet another value priced, good quality and well styled European brand never seen in the USA. I love roaming watch stores in Europe, dozens of brands displayed that never get here. I first became familiar with Junkers watches in tiny watch shop in a train station in Berlin.
