Many thanks!

It was pretty simple actually. I asked and explained why I really wanted the sapphire (match my wifeís wedding jewellery. )

They applied for it and 6 months or so later I got an extremely surprising call.

Iím not an overly big spender or anything but they know Iím not a flipper etc.

Yeah itís one of the reasons why these are so scarce from the watch manufacturers, the stones are they use have to be near perfect.

Congrats! Absolutely stunning. Iím glad to see someone that actually owns one of these. I think they do four different versions, correct? I think you chose the best one. Thereís another with diamonds, one with rubies, one with rainbow colors around the bezel, oh and a Sedna version with rubies. If anyone wants pics let me know but I donít want to clog up OPís awesome thread of HIS stunning Speedy!

Hey I would love for you to share more pics. I donít know if others who own one and would love to learn more. I donít actually know too much about them. I just desperately wanted a blue sapphire watch to match my wifeís wedding jewellery.
