I absolutely love it :-!

I still can't believe I got it for less than 90€ four years ago… o_O






The red dial version looks pretty good too |>

Do I look like Paul Newman in this? Do I? *DO I*?

So you know the drill; ding-dong-bell just a few moments after I posted up the Sea-Gull 1963. Tis Frau Postie with yet another package of mechanical goodness wot my wife doesn't know about. Luckily she's out, I'm in, so not rumbled. So I sign for it, bid her adieu, rush to the cooking island where I do such things, slice open the box at the seams, and rummage about in it to see *which* of the too many incomings this particular shipment contained.

It's my Alpha Paul Newman aka. The Panda! Woo-hoo! And accompanied by the optional glass display back. Woo-hoo! Wot I must install myself. Oh, dear.

Right, best crack on then.

So I rush to my watch drawer to collect (a) my strap tool and (b) the strap I ordered from TSS just for this watch and (c) erm, erm, summat to unscrew the solid back. Hmm. So I remember from some old post a recommendation to use a ball of sticky tape. Right, good plan. No sellotape (scotch tape, you philistines. Or durex to the aussies; no smirking please) left anywhere in the house after the Christmas wrapping frenzy, so... so down to the Keller (cellar, you philistines) for what turned out to be a protracted search. In the end I found some packing tape.

Fine, that'll do.

Now you must have gleaned by now that the only thing thing that exceeds the Capucho distaste for delayed gratification is our woeful preparation for manual labour of any kind. We're an aristocratic bunch, and believe such work (and waiting for *anything*) is best left to the serfs wot work on our lands. An understandable outcome of centuries of droit de seigneur, greed and laziness, which translates roughly as shag, scoff and sleep. When we had lands, that is. Impoverished now. Hence we work in banks, which is pretty much the aristocratic lifestyle brought forward into the 21st Century.

One digresses.

Of course I stabbed my hand with the strap tool. And my thumbs are red from making the sticky tape bundle. And I had to hunt around for the strap pins that I dropped once. Then twice. Then thrice. And it took two tries to thread on the glass back. But... but! Yes. The strap is on, and the display case is on, and photos have been taken.

Dunno what I should do with the rest of the day. Admire me new Panda, I expect.

Ric

p.s. A big thank you to the likes of Mr Martin Sir and Reno and many others for the inspiration to buy and strap this beauty.

Incredible photos Reno. They made my decision to purchase so much easier :)
Thanks kabal_za, glad you like them ! :)

There's not much more to say about the Panda… column-wheel chronograph, at a incredible price…
Those watches are a fantastic bargain :-!
