Finally, it's here.

Finally, it's here.

A couple weeks ago I mentioned I had finally found the watch I had been looking for for years. Long out of production I first spotted a picture of one on the Chronomaster.uk site. After what seemed like additional years in transit it is here. I give you the Junghans Vista Chrono in titanium. Its about 42mm, (dead battery in my calipers). Runs on a Valjoux 7750. Overall, it's in great shape which concerned me since it is titanium. The case looks perfect, the watch strap shows a tiny bit of wear. The date wheel is in German as that was the only way that they ever made them as far as I can tell. Monday looks the same but all the other days are different. In my earlier thread Tony (AntFarm) guessed what it was from an earlier chat we had-what a memory. Thanks to him for not spilling the beans. So here's a few quick pictures. I'll get some better ones later.

There are sleek styles; there are solid watches. This one is both - man. I don't wanna gush, but that piece is about as handsome as it gets.

Congrats, Mark. Fun stuff; I really hope it meets your expectations, which I have no doubt it will.

Clean, understated. Sublime even. That’s righteous.

Many congrats.

Thanks folks. I'm liking it, sometimes there is a let down when you finally get something you've longed for, not so with this one. The loom is actually pretty decent, I'll try and capture it when I get a chance.

Je ne sais quoi. I could not put my finger on it for a second or two. The visual esthetic is cool -noun- if not pleasingly cold. A no nonsense well made presence.
