    You rang?

    Maybe it's lucky we're not married yet...but the noose is being waved!

    Also wondering why UPS have taken No.1 from NY to NJ to another place in NJ then to KY, now to PA...get it out of the US already, will you?! You've had two days!

    I assume somebody wrote an algorithm which says this is the most efficient way to get the package to you. Blame someone that uses an iPhone for a watch ;)

    I think its more likely someone wrote an algorithm which says this is the least costly way for the delivery company to get a package to Mimo...starts out on a paperboy's bicycle delivery route, then in the backpack of a hitchhiker, then a carrier pigeon, then to an radio controlled model airplane, then to an airboat through the Everglades, then in the stomach of an alligator which will swim it to a nearby port..etc, etc, etc....

    Newark to Philly via Louisville...to get to the Middle East. Makes no sense. But anyway, incoming, yay!

    (And I'm in trouble).

    I've always loved the rolex with the pepsi bezel. I've tried to find one at an affordable price point. No luck. Stunning watch.

    An unpolished 1978 pepsi is a grail for me but they definitely command a serious price these days.

    Hi Gents,

    my BLNR has arrived. I haven't gotten all the plastic off and as JB said, its a tough watch to photograph!!! I've just taken a few quick photos, but I love the new cerachrom bezel. Definitely a different look and feel than my 16570 Explorer II, but it fits in well with my little collection. This is also the first time in roughly 20 years that I've owned a GMT Master. Thanks for all the kind words from my brothers here, and to the infamous Frills for "Returning the favor," concerning my various enabling texts to him in the past [​IMG]

    Below are a few quick pix. Enjoy!

    Ohh myyyy. Were I to pick a GMT I would've gone with the Coke bezel but this is very very nice. Congratulations on the new addition!

    Wow, Dino! Beautiful.

    I guess you won't be needing your 15202 anymore. I'll pm you my shipping details.

    Congrats Dino! All this BLNR love is making me dizzy. May be I should add this one to my list, too?!

    I thought about that but wasn't sure how I was going to explain it to the wife. "Yes honey I know I just bought a new watch last week but all the cool kids are getting BLNRs and I want one too."
