N.O.A. 1675 Limited Edition
Fast forward 1 year and I found this used version on ebay. It was not perfect by a long shot, but the price was great and the seller accepted my offer. It has a second, beige rubber strap that the previous owner used, as it had some staining that I'm sure will come out but I haven't bothered to try. I prefer the alligator strap. The packaging is over the top, a nice large leather slide open box. The internal watch pillow was pleather and falling apart.

-the overall look
-nicely decorated movement (Loud conversation DD module working fine)
-the price I got this one at (NOA's are extremely overpriced in my opinion.)
-the 44mm dial, because it has no bezel, plays like a teacup saucer on the wrist, but I'm getting used to it.
-the strap is actually leather sewn into a rubber frame, which I guess will improve durability in the long haul, but actually takes away from the comfort on the wrist.
-the chrono second hand sits over the date and the dial logo.
-the cheap pleather pillow it came on.
Here are some pics, thanks for looking.
