I've now got one of these incoming

BNIB from an Australian AD at a huge discount from the UK price.

I will have to wait until July to get my hands on it though, as my Sister-in-Law will bring it over to the UK for me.
Please let me know your thoughts on this once you receive it. I've been thinking about getting one and with the demise of Fortis as a brand, I guess I ought to make up my mind sooner versus later.

Those Precista’s look great. Solid deal for the money. I never should have sold the 18A I had (from Hop, to Andrea).

They’re not dead yet. They are selling great right now, actually.

I already have an 18A but the new PRS18Q COSC was too much watch for the money to resist.

I've also done a deal on this today

A lovely BLUMO with a domed sapphire crystal.

Anyone know a good divorce lawyer as I might need one soon at this rate :oops: :oops:
You sure are on a roll this year Eddy did a great job on the reissue here is my original issued one I picked up cheap a few years ago.

Huh.... I thought I read they filed for bankruptcy. I guess they are just trying to restructure. I wish them the best of luck as I do like a number of their designs, this one included.

Let's hope it doesn't result in this...

Watch 105/500

The "regular" Fifty Fathoms is going to help pay for it, but I'm properly chuffed.
