Yet Another Aerospace GMT...
« on: September 05, 2013, 06:59:23 PM »
From Butch to me. Fully BWG'd out of the box. This one has the bracelet Butch has been using, and it's pretty appropriate and well-made--I have a JB Champion beads-of-rice bracelet I might also try, though this one has the distinct advantage that it actually fits my 8-1/4" wrist.

Speaking of which, I was a little concerned that it would be too small, but nope. Looks just right, don't you think?

This is my second Zodiac and my third AS1687-based watch. Good solid movement. Like my SST, this one hacks and has the push-to-set date--very nice features.

I like the early nickel-finish bezel. This one has experience without looking beat up.

I love it when my babies go to a good home.

Glad you like the band. I was impressed enough to buy them and have them engraved.

 :pimp; butch, what kind of bracelet is that, it is really sharp looking and goes with the watch . is it 17.5mm or did it have to be cut down to fit?

It had to be custom fitted, no one makes a 17.5 any longer it seems. You can see some pics in my for sale area.
