    A new sports watch for me today

    I've been wanting a new sports watch for some time. I've actually had my eye on this Maurice Lacroix Pontos S Supercharged chrono watch for a couple years but the price made it out of reach. I've loved the colors and the leather and rubber strap was very appealing. It is extremely comfortable. I do like larger watches as I have flat wrists and it's 48 mm diameter looks great and isn't too big on my wrists. I know it's not for everyone and especially at 48mm. I think the watch is very attractive. This larger watch requires the ETA Valgranges caliber to motor it. 46 hour power reserve. A fella on ebay had one brand spanking new for sale finally. His auction ended with no bids. Said he was clearing his collection to buy a new Rolex. Retail is $3900 and Jomashop and Chrono24 both want $2400-$2500. I made the guy an offer of $1100 and it was a deal. It was just way way too good of a deal to pass on. Came today and I couldn't be happier. Completely unworn with box, books, tags and all plastic coverings. Very happy today I got my watch. My first Maurice Lacroix and impressed with everything about.

    Thank you all ..... For more then 50% less than gray market prices I figured it was now or never. Shocked the owner wanted to move it so bad. Could have been the 48mm .......
