Of course I do not hate the man.  I have received three magnificent watches from him:  an Aristo Flieger Replika 55mm, a Dievas Vintage Cali Titanium, and a Steinhart Ocean 44 DLC.

However, no sooner had I finally settled on my two future purchases (with straps and all), he has now thrown a massive spanner in the works by announcing the sale of Squale.  Check out the Tiger 064 in black and you will understand my predicament...

What a problem to have, eh...

Cheers all from a beautifully sunny HK afternoon.

Have a great weekend.

PS.  To be clear, I am in no way affiliated to Anders or Gnomon nor do I receive any benefits from him for this whatsoever.  Just fell in love with a watch, again...

Hahaha. For a moment I thought I was on top of a hate list. subtlelaugh.gif

Anyhow, the Tiger is a lovely watch. New Old Stock parts. And very very vintage in looks. I have my Tiger White on a NATO Strap and its sick.

And I heard from Squale that there are not many NOS parts left. They are gone for good once the remaining parts are sold. And than maybe replaced by new parts.

Cheers
Anders

Mate, Im sure you a watch guy. *Watch guy is someone who puts his watch in front of him when he walks around in crowded places* subtlelaugh.gif

Not a problem even if the watch is without any crystal.

Hook, line, and sinker eh Jeep99dad?

Well done!

Now, where did my wife put that X-mas list.  I may have something to add.  I am sure I have been a good boy this year...

snoopy1.gifBest thing about living in Singapore is that it is only a 15 minute drive from my apartment to Anders shop. That is Saturday afternoon sorted then.
