И я думал, что новый синий цвет был гаванским табаком коричневым ... таким странным миром, в котором мы живем, Фогги.

Are you sitting down? It DOES have a "kvikset date," as the devil's spawn commie bastards call it...

I just love your new watch posts; especially the 9th pic... Great stuff.
On to the watch. That green dial and bezel are just beautiful. I also love the case back. What is the measurement across on that one.
And by the way you must own more watches than Imelda has shoes...

Haven't seen green MOP and it really is beautiful. Just keep staring at it.

A nice addition to your immense collection and with a quick set date, a rare bird from the Russkies.

Green is good. This green is very good, comrade.

I believe VE uses Seiko NH movements in these models, but obviously, Mort will expand upon this in his looked-forward-too ReeVoo.

Very cool watch.

The usual fun read, Mort, and that's really a great looking watch. I also, too look forward to your review.

Mort, I'm starting to care less about the actual watch, and more about your graphics in these. :D Good stuff!

Thank you, Anty! You're very kind, sir... 8-) It's 46mm across on this one, but looks bigger on the wrist than that. Fortunately, it's a comparatively light piece, so the wearer doesn't get as tired as he might otherwise get.

Page 9 -- as you no doubt saw -- is very tongue in cheek, and the more arrows, the more I chuckle... ;)

As to Imelda, and all of that, I actually have a very modest little watch collection, which I try to keep as trimmed down as possible, something my missus seems to be very dedicated to, and never mind her 10,476 purses while you're at it... ;)

Green is good. This green is very good, comrade.

Many thanks, 'Loaf! I do have to demur as to my collection being immense; it's actually quite modest, and continues to be pared down, one wartch at a time, etc. I think you reach a point where you realize that you have an absurd number of Adee Kaye, Oniss, Invicter, etc., watches, and you just have to divest until you feel worthy of your collection and it is worthy of you. Only by doing this can we reach horological Nirvana, or Valhalla, or heaven, etc. (In my case, it'll probably be Bayonne, NJ... :???: )
