"Hi Giles, the watch is beautiful! To be honest I'm not the type of collector who likes beaten up and faded so called 'character' watches. I prefer pristine 'vintage' so the service dial is perfect for me! My watchmaker checked out the movement just for my peace of mind and its good as new. I'm wearing it on an Everest blue rubber strap at the moment.... Thanks for everything and I hope to do business with you in the near future. Happy New year from Malta!"
