Having sold some treasures of late I wanted something different to wear as a change, and also for the summer – last year I bought an Ocean 7 for the same purpose, and this year, again, I wanted something a little quirky. I toyed with Seiko’s and Casio’s, but they weren’t doing it for me. Then, when I was giving up the ghost, this beauty appeared on a forum in the UK and I snapped it up almost instantly. It’s a kind of cross between a Panerai and an Anonimo Polluce and it has a tangible 50’s look to it. Bearing in mind it was about fifty quid more than my Casio GW-5000 it’s great VFM, and whilst it’s about as large as I can possibly go (44mm, but hefty) it’s very comfortable and I love it. Oh, and it has magnificent lume!
