    Today, as I mentioned in the "poor man's...." thread, I wore my Tissot Seastar:

    Some lovely details on the dial, somewhat in contrast with the minimalist case design.

    However, knowing that a parcel had been shipped for me the day before yesterday, I sat somewhat uneasily at work... I took off a bit earlier than normal - and lo and behold, there was a "you weren't home..." note from the mailman! ::rant:

    I was feeling rather annoyed at having missed him, especially as I wouldn't be able to pick it up until Friday. Then I noticed the time on the slip... 14.30. A quick glance at the Tissot confirmed that it was now 14.33! I rushed to my bicycle and took a tour of the (small) neighbourhood, found the mailman and bore down on him! Result!

    My first Longines ::love::

    A one-owner Conquest from 1976 with original box, booklet, buckle and strap. Has probably been used only a handful of times. The best part is that it has come directly from watchguy, so it is good for use! Financially it would have been wiser to let it go unserviced and only keep it for show, but where's the fun in that?

    It may not be on the wrist for that long, however, as it shared the parcel with my Tissot chronograph, which has had its chronograph looked at again. Such a fantastic piece with amazing presence.

    That might be the nicest looking chronograph out there. FANtastic! If it becomes a religion - count me in (and I am an atheist).

    Thanks! Unfortunately, the dial shows some signs (the logo...) of having received a refinishing somewhere in the past and the hands are later replacements. But I'm still pretty excited over it :D
