Old School Grab 'n Go

Post by mattcantwin » Thu Oct 04, 2018 6:17 pm

I've been kicking around the idea of picking up one of these for a while.

Found one today that looks good.

Seller bought it on WUS from Exelonman; I've dealt with him before - quality pieces.

The watch was serviced in Jan 2018, new battery, pressure testing and a light refinish.


Seller's pictures.

Not vintage, but the serial number has it at about 20 years old.


Looking forward to the 39.2 size, I felt the 41.5 Seamaster wore a bit large.

Nice. I have a Breitling Aerospace as my quartz grab-n-go and we all need one. That’s a great looking piece. Congrats.

Nice! I've long thought about looking for an Aqua Terra quartz with the teak dial.

Nice! The size, design and gloss dial reminds me of the Sinn 556i that I had. It was a super comfortable weekend watch.

I'm always checking quartz "Bond" Seamasters, one day I'll grab one for a grab and go watch.
