Got It Back - Second Time's a Charm

Post by namor » Thu Sep 27, 2018 7:56 am

Sometimes life interferes with your plans, and that was the case with a really treasured watch I had. It was sold but not forgotten.

Two years later, fortune has smiled on me and I found another similar one for sale.

I am a sucker for any EZM1 - even the benighted BAPE version - but this is my grail. Its the original model, small triangle bezel, would have an 3H on the dial if the ZUZ logo wasn't taking its place. Serial number dates it to the first year of production, and it was recently overhauled with a new capsule and Argon fill. Here's a Q&D shot because its on my wrist and not coming off!

Very nice. I remember selling you my EZM1, a watch that for whatever reason I never really bonded with.

Awesome. Seth is the only person that I know that has had more ezm1s than me. And I had ALOT.

NICE!
