The short answer: I love
it. Especially in the stainless steel bracelet, automatic movement iteration. Its modified shape is quite a bit more appealing than the too-large, rather blocky -- even clumsy -- version they put together for the MIB III movie; sadly, but not unexpectedly, neither the film nor the watch did very well on the market. In an ironic way, this [email protected]
looks more like the Seiko "asymmetrical" models than it does Elvis' old electric Ventura
, which is okay by me, as I am a genuine fan of both.
(Chronomatt has an original electric Ventura
, and it's just gorgeous, though its then-cutting edge -- and admittedly a bit odd -- movement never kept very good time. His superb write-up and photo's can be found here: http://watchlords.com/forum/viewtopic.p ... ra#p310813
how, the only problems I have with the [email protected] Ventura
are: (1) not knowing exactly what movement is behind the case-back, though I assume it's an ETA or a Sellita, and; (2) the cost -- about $1500 USD & change for the stainless bracelet version -- is a bit on the high side. Still, it is
a Hamilton auto, and you can't ever
go wrong with that, IMHO. If money were no object...well, we all know the rest of that
old bromide, don't we?
Well, that's Mort's take on the watch; I hope it didn't come off as "ranting pontification."
Thanks for posting this'n, Sam, and thanks for asking my opinion, Big Kahuna.
