Look at that. I follow your link and end up going to their website and liking the silver blue angels and the blue sea star. Now I am pondering, I’ll probably get one if not both. Gee thanks.

The silver Blue Angels reminds me of the IWC Spitfire Mark XVI. Numeral markings are different, but that’s what it reminds me of.

I ordered it, I figure I can’t go wrong for $149.00.

Real world pictures shows the orange tip on the hand and orange numerals on the chapter ring with an orange automatic. However, the stock photos show it all as red. I would prefer orange, but it doesn’t matter if it is red I guess. My concern is the 50mm lug to lug, the watch itself is 40mm so there will probably be some overhang on the lugs. Typical for pilot watches, especially Glycine so it may not fit like I prefer, but it was only $149.00 so I took a chance.
They had them in silver, blue, grey and black dials. I almost went blue, but liked the dial on the silver more, I think it is all highlighted better with the outer rings and sunburst like center.


The dial, except the numerals, reminds me of this.

It finally made the plane to Los Angeles. Now for the customs wait and more travel time.
