First, the details...Seiko NH-35 Automatic, 120 Click Unidirectional Bezel, Domed Sapphire With Internal AR, sunburst dial (I suck at getting a good shot of how beautifully light plays on the dial), Superluminova Old Radium dial and hands lume and Superluminova BGW9 bezel Lume, and 20ATM water resistance.
Ed was extremely generous to me: my watch came with an extra beads of rice bracelet with a different-than-usual clasp, and a canvas travel roll for watches, complete with the now-classic 304 logo leather patch
My photo-fu is not particularly strong today, but I'm really excited to have this in the collection. Every version of this watch has it's own charm, but I've always been particularly taken by the vintage vibe of the Emperor Brown's luminescent earth tones.
...and my not-so-wonderful shot showing the sunburst dial effect...
This is a very comfortable watch. The curved lugs, 40mm width and 13.5mm height make it easy to wear, and 20mm lugs (with holes) mean it'd be easy to dress this beauty up or down with strap changes--but the beads of rice is so smooth and comfortable on the wrist, the watch may never see a different strap, even so.
Ed, I'm more grateful than I have words, and very proud to wear yet another of your fine watches. Thank you!
This last photo is Ed and I happily enjoying the gracious hospitality of David Chang and his wife (back/center) with a group of watch industry friends in Shenzhen, during the China Watch and Clock Fair. Among other accomplishments, David is a jury member of the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève, the Founder of Watchina, and director of the Beijing Collectors' Association. Ed is wearing an Emperor in the photo.
