    Cool Unpacking my new watch.... what a stunner!!

    I woke up at 4:30am this morning, excited like a little kid at christmas day and I couldn't wait for the mail to arrive today.

    Needless to say, I was expecting a watch. Not just any watch though. A nice watch. A really nice watch. Really really nice.

    I was tracking the shipment every 2 minutes until..... F I N A L L Y ..... at 2:17pm I heard a car in the driveway and a knock on the front door.

    And here it is, what a beauty, enjoy.......

    Very nice indeed

    Very nice watch! I have considered purchasing one of these from Define Watches. I got even more excited as soon as I realised that your watch had been sent by Define Watches. I knew that it would be a really nice, classy, watch, and it is. Please write up more about it!

    Well played Sir! That's an absolute beauty, congrats. I've been thinking about pulling the trigger on a Dornbluth for some time; when I first looked a few years ago the waiting list of 6 months put me off. I contacted them again recently, and they advised me it's now 12 months, doh! Your pics suggest to me it's worth the wait though, very very nice. All the best & enjoy!

    Killer watch. Oozes class. Was getting a bit impatient with all those packaging shots though!

    Wow. I love the colour and texture and it looks to be beautifully finished.
    I wonder what type of wood it is?



    The watch looks perfect on your wrist. Congrats!
