The beautiful 5712

Having seen some recent "incoming" threads, I couldn't wait to share the new addition to the collection. I had waited too long for my AD to come through with their promise so I took actions in my own hand on this one. Cheers everyone!

Funnily enough I just put away my watch collection after contemplating what to wear for tomarrow Eid Prayer and day. After a long pause and having tried on nearlly all 14 pieces I chose the 5712. Polished it with my cloth and set the time ready to wear it in a few hours when I wake up. I feel like a kid who’s excited to use his new stationery on first day of school. Haha

Thanks everyone!! I'm still in a bit of shock having it since I've waited so long for my AD to come through. I decided to pull the trigger going this route since the discontinuation of the 5711 isn't going to help my case either. And tbh I was also a bit nervous after seeing the other thread right after the purchase with potential gray market fakes. But luckily the deal was with a long-time TRF member/seller with a stellar reputation so that def helps to ease the post-purchase anxiety.
