I was in a photographic shop today and looking at the new Olympus Pen camera. When the shop asst started explaining to me the camera, I noticed another chap interested in the camera wearing a Marine Original. I rather rudely stopped listening to the shop asst, and commented on the watch the other chap was wearing. He took it off and offered it to me to have a look. All I can say is - WOW!!!. Much better in person than on the computer screen, dial beautifully deep white, the blued hands were exquisite, the movement looked masterfully decorated through the saphire back - all in all, it was really very impressive. It seemed larger than I expected, probably due to the large face to case proportions. I told the bemused camera shop asst I'd rather have the watch than the camera!
He walked off - and the MO wearer turned out to be an expert on photography and able to offer helpful advice to me. All day all I could think of was that watch - didn't buy the camera Great watch, Great watch wearer, a good day!
