WURW Friday 07.21.2017

Postby Thunder1 » July 21st 2017, 3:46am

Well, this SRQ19J1 arrived at my door late yesterday afternoon..I know at least one other WL has already scooped up one of these babies, so I won't bother w/ another review..this one is previously loved, and is my 1st exposure to the Seiko 8R48 movement..my initial impression, so far, it that it is a fairly tall watch, much like a Valjoux 7750 watch..so far, so good, though..

That dial is clean and classic, Thunder. Hope it wears well on the strap. Looks heavy? Hope the new pup isn't wearing Winston out.

Morning, BL.. yeah, it is on the heavier side..other than the Junghans chrono that I own, very comparable to most other Valjoux 7750 equipped watches, I think, in terms of heighth and weight...Winston is in hog heaven, though, having another companion to get into trouble with..

Gage, that gets prettier every time I see it. Thunder: As far as I'm concerned, ol' Winston is the official mascot of WL, at least in my eyes.

I concur.

Great pic of the Seiko, Russ. Really great!

Bobbee, your furball is indeed cute; but, Winston and his Friday well wishes are a staple.
