    NEW ARRIVAL--FC Vintage Rally Healey GMT Limited Edition

    So very much to my surprise I got a new delivery in the mail today!

    A Frederique Constant Vintage Rally Healey GMT!!!!! I absolutely love this watch. The dial is a lovely shade of brown that has depth and appears to change in tone depending on how the light hits it. It has a true GMT function allowing me to independently move the hour hand, making it much more user friendly than GMT where I can adjust the GMT hand. Furthermore, all operations are controlled through a single crown.

    The case is finished in a rose gold plating (normally plating is not my thing, but I like this so much I don't care) and has excellent fit and finish. The rally strap is both substantive and supple. A wonderful fit.

    Oh, I also have another reason to love this watch.....

    Cool! My uncle used to race Austin Healeys when he was young and carefree. (That was almost 50 years ago.)

    It's a very nice looking vintage watch. Do you plan to wear it or simply collect it?

    Looks great on you. My daughter wanted me to by this one awhile back, she wanted the model car. She said I could keep the watch, lol.

    Sorry about that. It was already past sundown, but I was excited to share. I can't do as good a job (iPhone camera only), so here's a pic from the web. I think it most closely catches what I see in mine.

    That would be my father. He is on a cruise (Crystal Cruises) and the onboard watch shop had a display with the model car. Of course he recognized it as a Healey and went in to get me the watch. A very pleasant surprise, indeed.

    Well that was very thoughtful (and pretty darn awesome) of him. Very cool. Is your dad a watch guy?

    He certainly can appreciate the aesthetics and has several nice pieces of his own, but doesn't quite get to WIS status. He will frequently seek my advise before buying a watch, which as his son, makes me feel very good.
