A new addition arrived today.  8)

I tried to find a port-hole as a backdrop, but a row of luxury Sunseeker cruisers will do.

Friends' opinions on the watch range from "Cool" to, "Efin' Hideous"!  

Bit of a "Marmite"watch I guess. :lol:

Certainly different, Chris ! :P


I see 'BangkokJunkMan' has a NOS example, with boxes, tags and papers for sale:

What exactly is the purpose of the opening port-hole ? :/ To protect / show off the solid 22ct bezel ? :o

I guess the design was aimed at the well-heeled sailing type, the case-back has no serial number but I guess it was made in the early 1990's.

A quirky design for sure, but as only 2000 were made I felt it was worth a bid.

If I ever need to I could scrap the bezel and sell the movement for a Gen 2 spare !  :lol:

Sorry Paul.......The designer(s) must have started with a nautical bezel theme and had to incorporate a gold blingy bezel.

The design works fine in principle and fully protects what is a very soft metal 22ct gold  bezel.

You can actualy feel the weight of the bezel when wearing the watch, it feels slightly top heavy.

I really like this watch, the hands stand out well; it's comfortable and you won't see many about!
