    A Public "Thank You" to Kev ......

    I want to offer a public "thank you" to Kev, a forum member here on WUS, and on the DOXA sub-forum.

    He and I entered into a transaction concerning a GMT bracelet for the 750T. The bracelet came safe and sound, on time, and as described. One can't ask for a better deal. Kev was quick with my e-mail inquires, and patient with my many questions. If you find yourself in a position to work a deal with Kev, rest assured that he is a top-notch guy.

    The bracelet itself is a thing of beauty. Heavier than the standard issue, and it does indeed "balance" the head of the 750T. Now that I have compared them together, the GMT is a much better visual fit. Nothing wrong at all with the standard, it's just that the GMT adds a new dimension. I think I'll keep it.

    Thanks for stopping by; I now return you to your regularly scheduled Wednesday night.

    Cheers!
    Bill

    Excellent, always love good vibes floating around.

    Tell us more of the bracelet you speak of.....any pics or site links? I'm a Mill Sharkie guy, so no options for me I think, but always love to see what others do to their watches.

    A Public "Thank You" to Kev ......

    Hi Steven .... I'm all about sharing the love. When I find a good deal, or a good seller/buyer, I'll drop a quick note about the experience.

    Concerning the bracelet; I've seen threads here that document the differences far better than I can (both verbally and with photo's), but if you wish, I can take some pics in the next day or two and post 'em here.

    A quick glance shows the GMT bracelet to be the same, until you get the "ant's eye" view. It's thicker, the screws are larger, and apparently the links are a different size as I had to remove an extra one as compared to the standard. And, the clasp has four micro-adjustment holes, as opposed to the three found on the standard.

    All in all, a brilliant piece of kit. I'll be back later with a few shots.

    Cheers!

    Thanks Bill. No need to photo anything just for me, if this is already covered in other threads, I can search and check them out.

    Enjoy the watch!!

    Bill,

    I have to agree with you ... Kev is a great guy. Kathy and I had the pleasure to meet him and enjoy an hour or so of his company. Nice of you to put out the word.

    A Public "Thank You" to Kev ......

    I'm a member of quite a few forums; watches, motorcycles and Land Rovers take a lot of my time that may have been spent doing other (bad) things.

    Of all the places I hang out, I have to think that this forum in particular has some of the friendliest and out-going folks I've met anywhere. I'll get into a conversation with someone here, and later into that conversation, I find out that the person I'm chatting with is in ________.

    That's always amazed me about the 'Net .... you can meet some really kewl folks BEYOND your circle-of-friends. I chat with folks in Australia, Canada, all over Europe, a couple in Russia, and even one here in my home town! Where (and how) else would this be possible?

    Beyond a watch sale, I make a new cyber-friend, and that's worth more to me than any consumer goods I may acquire. Some of my cyber-friends have sent photo's of their towns and areas, which I've added to my "List of places to see". What is this worth? More than I can explain in mere words.

    When I say "thank you", it's not only because of a seller, it's because of a person. Big distinction between the two. This is why I spend as much time here as I do.

    See, now you guys have got me rambling; I'll shut up now, and go back to reading. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and a special thanks to all of you who I've had the pleasure to meet. You folks make this little hobby quite enjoyable.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of my Friends here at WUS!

    Cheers!
    Bill
