### The Official "I WON THE BOND SUB" thread (with pics) ###

I am very proud to say that I won the Bond Sub Giveaway here on TRF. As our old friend JJ Irani would have said "you lucky bastid"
As per the rules, below are pics, including the obligatory selfies.

Before you scroll down, please remember that this was only possible because of the generous help and support of all involved, and I thank you all.

Wow, I still can't believe it. My collection has doubled this last week. I only just picked up my Blue dial YM last week. I really am a lucky bastid.


OK, time to take some pics, but we had better shed some light on this first...

Like Medusa, if you look directly at the new Bond Sub you will turn to cold stone, so we had better use a mirror

Tools are ready

Opening scene

A handwritten note from Tools
5.jpg

Lots of shiny (Rolex) green bubble wrap

What's this? A green clam-shell?

With a pearl inside it

Wow

Off with the old...

On with the new

Looking good

Feels right at home, where it belongs

I have been a member here on TRF over 6 years, and what makes TRF such a great place are you, the members. If you needed any motivation to become a pledge member, these pictures speak louder than words. I will wear this with more pride than any of my others. THANK YOU.
