My wait has ended. Went to FedEx earlier today and picked up my Red. It got to the depot to late to be delivered and there was no way in hell I was waiting until Monday. Since this is my first Steinhart I really did not know what to expect. Well, all of you were right, (I didn't really doubt you), this watch is awesome. The decision to go with the Plexi was the right move. Thanks to those who steered me in the right direction. I'm going to enjoy this baby for a few days and then start figuring out what #2 is going to be.

By the way if anyone is interested on how a watch gets from Germany to New Jersey in one day...................................

I love the plexiglass on mine. It really is nice. Good looking watch. Enjoy.

My GMT Ocean 1 was on the same flight yesterday. That must be their daily milk run. Went from Memphis to Dulles International and then to local delivery. Pretty fast.

Time zones. So you can add a couple of hours.

My Vintage Red was also sent on January 20. And although I live in the Netherlands (the western neighbor of Germany) I still have to wait until Monday (I hope). #@$%^$%@^$# :-| :roll: ;-)

Anyway, great watch Ira G. Enjoy.

Groeten...
