The 001 Arrived!

Post by JDC222 » Fri Jul 09, 2021 2:31 pm

I want to thank Carl (bedlam) for making the effort to send me the watch from Australia, it arrived well
Packaged and better than described!

Love it!

If it was his watch it’s actually been underwater, which is very cool. Congrats buddy.

Awesome!
Can’t believe he sold it…..

So if that was his, I sold it to him years ago then invited him to DWC. That was my first MM300.

Congrats! Love mine and it's still my all time favorite. Do yourself a favor and at least try the Crafter Blue fitted rubber strap. I could wear that combo daily it's so comphy.

For the record mine has been underwater in the ocean, but I'm sure not to the same depths.

Ooh cool Dave, and yeah, it looks brand new from here ! :)

Actually is such a fantastic looking watch, and one that you, or I, or we
honestly appreciate more, and more every time we see it. :salute: It's a watch
that is just as tough as it is beautiful I bet. And you can feel that neat
combination of sport, and elegance with these also. Where there is this
cool controlled aggression vibe happening. ..Man oh man, this one will
be difficult to take off this weekend I'm thinking. Or maybe for the rest
rest of the month, and summer come to think of it. :grin:

Sending you a COLOSSAL congratulations sir !!! ..And nice job too Carl !

I rate it highly but in a choice decided to keep my GS DIver. Its beautiful to look at on the wrist.

Congrats Dave :salute:
