    Hi friends.
    Today, I received a SS Constellation that I bought about two months ago from Vietnam. I did not have a chance to hold it in my hands or using a loupe to see more details from it.
    All I knew were some blurry photos and the price.
    I paid for it and today, here it is.

    Hello friends.
    Today I received a few dog leg lugs. There is one with cross hair on a dome dial. It goes without lume nor onyx inserts but only solid SS (silver) markers with matching hands.
    Here are some quick photo I took together with her sister.
    Regards.
    Hoi.

    Nicely done.
    Better pics of the ‘Arabic-at-quarters’ dial would be appreciated.

    Is Canada no longer part of North America?;) I don’t blame them, I would want to step as far away as possible too.
