    Bathys Black/Orange Benthic touched down

    My orange dialed black PVD benthic has touched down. No pics yet...yetting ready to take her to her natural element: the beach; leaving tomorrow.

    Anyway, the watch is subtle...not.

    The only surprise was that it came with watch pillows in the pelican case instead of pipe foam. Now I will have to find another source of pipe foam.

    Also, there is a nice warranty card....but the dealer forgot to stamp it....

    But I bought from Brad, and I think he is authorized.

    Anyway, I was going to use my 100f Qtz as the beach watch, but this might be used instead. I wonder how it will react if the surf is up and my body surfing pushes it into the ground?

    I will try to get pics in the correct element....at the beach.

    Oh, and next week, she heads home to the Aloha state....both Oahu and Kauai....I will probably take this and the rose gold Aquaculture....

    Waiting on: White Dial, Black PVD Sinn U1.

    Very impressive Bathys collection you've got, David. I'm looking forward to some beach shots of the orange PVD. And take some family shots of all 6 Bathys while you're at it. We need pics!!
    Regards,

    Gabe

    Am only taking one or two to the beach....I will leave the rest of the watches locked up in a vault for safety.

    Congrats David!!!!!! Very nice collection of Bathys Bruddah! Have a safe trip over to Hawaii...are you planning on hooking up with John?

    The Reg/War card was added not to long ago. Here are shots of the front and back of Sandra's that she got with the Wahine.





    The pillow was also added not to long ago. Sandra opted for the pipe foam for her Wahine.



    So David does not have to rush on posting pics.......here are a couple of shot of my Black/Orange Benthic.

    You bought my MOP benthic, right? Where do you think the money from this one came? It is not a room, but a $$$$ issue.

    I am wearing this now. Still not sure what else I will take to the beach....I might take a Panerai on a Nylon trap, cause tomorrow I will be in the heat all day at theChincoteague VA pony swim tomorrow. Rubber gets yucking in really hot weather.

    I am hoping to. We (wife, 6 yo daughter and me) are spending 5 days on Oahu and 5 days on Kauai. John may or may not be back from vacation while we are on Kauai.

    Stephan,
    How do you think the orange dial would look with a black rubber with bright orange stitching? I tried it by putting the OEM rubber from my Omega Planet Ocean (also 22 mm lugs). I think the rubber looked great (better than the OEM bathys, but the orange stitching could have been thicker). I did not take any pics of that configuration, as I put the OEM bathys strap back on.

    David,

    I would think it would look great. Pics of this config please. Sure would like to see it.

    BTW, I think John did not go to Chicago with the family. He was out hunting for somethings for Sandra this past weekend. Give him a call and see if you can hook up with him.

    I am so close to having the Marriott points to go back to Kauai! Just a few more stays.....
