The moment of reckoning arrived about an hour ago when the watch arrived. The FedEx tracker was great and got updated a lot so I knew when it had arrived in England, then Bristol and then to my work!
I won't bore you all with the box picture as you've seen the little flight case they come in but the experience didn't disappoint. The watch is beautiful, and my specification of "no date with a limette second hand" works so well, all my colleagues love it and have been drooling over the Stowa website since mine arrived:)
Please excuse my badly clenched fist picture below, I'll get someone else to take a few pictures sometime but at least you can see the watch in all its glory:) My Tag Heuer has been carefully put away but not for good - I think I'll be sharing wrist time with them both before long... Let me have a Stowa honeymoon period first:)
