Got the call!! But first...

...some shots of what I've been wearing lately! I've been a bit absent from the forums over the last few months due to some life changes (all of them great!), so I figured I should include a few wristshots of some of watches that I've worn along the way.

It also builds up the anticipation of the "Incoming", right??











Ok - now to the call! I put in the request for this piece with my lovely AD, and she told me that she'd hope to get it to me by the end of the year. Lo and behold, 2 weeks later and I got the call that I was not expecting. To say I was amazed at both the speed at which I got it as well as the watch itself would be an understatement.

I'm generally not a two-tone guy, but after trying both this and the full YG version, I can say that for my collection, the two-tone was the winner. It's an absolute stunner; a watch that I didn't really care for until I got to try it on in person. Vintage 80's vibes in a modern case!

Well we’ll well … welcome back my friend so good to see you here again

That’s a real beauty, maybe the very best two tone in the catalogue

Glad to hear you’re doing well, we missed you

I like this piece as well, and if I weren't waiting on a TT Root Beer, this one would be high on the list.

Congratulations!

Looks great glad you’re back…. thought you might’ve done something crazy like ran off and join the Navy.

Congrats! Great pick up and wear in good health. I’m more and more drawn to this piece. Tried it on but my focus is on an OF Daytona (for now)

Fully agreed, it's the best looking TT Rolex, possibly ever.

I was wondering what the Alpine Eagle was "making way for"?

Absolute stunner and long live the two tone!

I'm on the list for a 126503 Daytona so I hope to join the 2 tone resurgence soon!

Wear it in the best of health Jess1
