Elevator Down

Postby tiktok » May 5th 2017, 9:20pm

Started with this: Gerald Genta Gefica Safari, the original bronze over titanium watch with a number of complications including jumping hour and retrograde minutes. The design is very steampunk with rivets circling the case. Bought it in Europe around 2010. Wore it on boats and started getting green slime patina. Brand was bought by Bvlgari in 2014. This has been a safe queen majority of time and the watch has suffered significant price devaluation.

Started looking for a private buyer, found one and he gave me cash and a 36mm Omega Seamaster. never had an Omega and my initial impression is pretty positive. Very light and so much thinner than my Seikos. The finish work is pretty decent.

Thanks, it was pretty weird when Bvlgari bought such a freaky brand, they bought Daniel Roth at the same time. Anyway Bvlgari re-released the bronze Gefica with some other alloy that prevents the bronze from oxidizing, though that might appeal to you Juan. :)

A little Seamaster love! Quite the unexpected surprise.
