Anyhow. I started looking for a used one and one day in February 2010 a well known Swedish watch enthusiast had put up one for sale. It was still quite expensive so I sent him an offer and crossed my fingers. To my surprise it totally backfired and he felt very offended and started to ignore my e-mails even though the watch never got sold. It wasn’t until almost a year later in January 2011 when he bumped his old for-sale-ad, were he also lowered the price to the same offer I had given him in my first attempt, that I tried to contact him again. This time he replied! We met up and I finally got to buy the watch. It turned out the seller was a really interesting person with a true passion for watches and I’ve purchased more watches from him during the years over some funny conversations.
|#66 – The MKII LRRP.|
On the Lake Zürich going all in Swiss with a beer in one hand and a bratwurst and a piece of bread in the other. LRRP on the wrist.
I really liked the LRRP. Quite large with its 42mm but it wore well. I preferred it on the rubber. I’m allergic to the kind of “smooth” end link pieces this bracelet has. Two years later I found another used one to a much lower price than the first one and had to buy it just for the cause. Removed the bracelet immediately and put it on a Victorinox Dive Master rubber. Looked great in my opinion.
