    First time I saw the first page of this thread. Everytime I click this thread I tell myself I don't need any watches, I don't need any watches :eek:


    If you find any more of these and they're 17mm at the lug end, I'd like one too :eek:

    First watch came in today! Thanks esp. to Venessian for your help--the Toshi strap is currently on its way as well.

    Without further ado... [click for big pics]

    Absolutely gorgeous! You're most welcome; I was happy to help. You'll like the Toshi. Very substantial stuff.

    And Warren G., I'm still loving the Blue Spark! :)

    Thanks Warren. If you see someone walking around New Orleans with a Damasko, it is probably me I guess!


    Toshi should be coming in a couple days, so I will take a picture with the strap when it comes. I got the Conker with black thread... the thread was an impulse decision, but thought it would be interesting to say the least! Richard was also great to work with. Now if only my spring bar tool will come in, just realized today I had to get one :rofl:


    Thanks Luk, glad to have the approval of someone who has as many bespoke G&G's as you have :)

    Same here. I was between a Sinn and a Damasko... and the Damasko just ended up winning out in the end. Both brands have some very lovely and simple designs, and I really like the no-frill feel of both of the brands. You should see the instruction manual that came with the Damasko--a two page front and back pamphlet!

    That is awesome, and I'm glad my Blue Spark find a great new home.


    You definitely don't see them around here. I'm thinking about getting my friend a Sinn this Christmas. I had a 756 for a very short time, it was just too thick for me. It was a very nice watch nonetheless.
