    Belated Birthday Present From The Old Country

    I got word on February 18th that my G. Gerlach Otago was on it's way from Poland, my ancestral homeland.
    It arrived today and I must say I'm very impressed. Excellent detail for such a very reasonably priced timepiece.




    Here are the specifications and a few pictures.




    Technical details:
    42×50 mm case, Stainless steel 316L.
    Sapphire crystal, anti-reflection coating.
    Screw crown.
    20ATM Water Resistance.
    Rotating bezel.
    SeaGull ST-25 movement.
    Leather strap.
    Two colors versions

    Happy Birthday and congrats on your latest arrival. This is on my want list and hope I can get one before they sell out. I'm impressed with their designs being different instead of cookie cutter. Looking forward to your opinions/impressions after you've worn it for awhile. Wear it good health, my friend.

    I was asked what the time was that was on my watch ?
    Does anybody really know what time it is ?
    Does anybody really care ?
    If so I can't imagine why..........
    I do, I do, I do care about time.
    (Thanks R Lamm)

    This is a baaaad assss watch, Rick;) There is something I like about this one... I don't think I will shell out money for Doxa any time soon and this might just do it to satisfy my 'orange' craving;) LOL... Besides, J. Conrad was one of my favorite writers!!!

    Any impressions after using it for a few weeks? How's the Seagull movement/accuracy? How much did you end up paying, with shipping and everything? Any customs bill from FedeX?

    I had not seen one of these before. I like the case shape and the sharp looking dial on that one! Congrats!
