Great review. I like this watch alot. Your grandfather had good taste in watches. Looks like a keeper to me. Nice Rolls as well.

Unfortunately it's not. This is from a post on Reddit r/watches and I was absolutely captivated by the watch. If to be believed, the owner appears to be a self-made real-estate millionaire at 26 per his YouTube account.

I don't wanna sound like a drooling fan boy but wow - that photo is mesmerizing. I mean, the shape that thing is in...stunning.
