New to me

Well since I canít seem to obtain the elusive blro even though I am numero three on ďthe listĒ and 2 orders have been filled ( so I am told) I decided while away on holiday to go for this one.
Love the look , green sapphire and all ....
My first pcl





Will complement these nicely

I enjoy my Milgauss also

These are great and under appreciated watches. I love the second hand and the green crystal. Congrats!

Thank you all for the kind words, I very much dig it. I had only seen one in the wild and after seeing the AK in the metal last week I decided on the Milgauss .
My next step is the blro on jubilee hopefully this year ....

You can't go wrong with a Milgauss. Wacky, fun, different and very cool. Congratulations.

So interesting story . I am out of town for work . Walked into an ad which had nothing as expected and this guy was eye balling the Milgauss. Followed me out in the parking lot and asked to buy it upfront . Told him about DSW and moved on. Was rather odd to experience this .

Out of ALL my watches, Iíve received the most unsolicited compliments on that one. More than my DD, Daytona...everything. Great piece. Enjoy it.

Thank you all again for the kind comments
Question is the watch a tad thicker say than an air king due to the soft iron cage or is it the same thickness ?

Congratulations on your great looking Milgauss! This really is one of the most interesting references that Rolex makes with the orange lightning hand and green crystal. That is odd though that you don't have your BLRO if you are indeed #3. I won't tell you what number I am as expect to wait many years. Enjoy your Milgauss in good health. Cheers!
