So I did something dumb...

I am known as the watch guy in my circle (and extended circle) of friends.
A couple times a year I get a call from someone who wants to sell a watch either due to a breakup or something along those lines.
Well this is the latest, I bought it off a friend who broke up with his partner and just wanted it gone. I told him I really wasn't interested and then he told me what he wanted for it, I told him he could get more on eBay etc but he didn't care about the $ really, just wanted it gone with no hassle.
Anyway here is the beast I just picked up.
Im not going to keep it, it's just way too big at 45 mm for my 6.8 in wrist LOL!!! Interestingly to me it wears much bigger than my PAM243.

Nice one, Jeremy! Sorry to hear about your friend but glad he was able to get rid of it without too much of a hassle.

The size can take some getting used to or
isn't for everyone. Give it some time but either way for the right price it shouldn't be too hard to sell either on here, Chrono 24, or on eBay.
