  1. As above...and it doesn't have one of those nasty 4.30 date windows Here's mine...
  2. Happy Friday to you all. Hamilton X Wind today, which I think would be a great watch if a) the glass wasn't so damn reflective and b) the hands were legible....
  3. Ah! Thanks for the heads up, just before I ordered! Have dropped them a line to ask, will update this thread with what I hear.
  4. Thank you both for the info, ordering now - and so begins the long wait....

  12. She's ugly, but I quite like her...
