Great deal there. Which one will it be? The white or black dial?

They won't? That's Ree-dickilus! If you really wanted to do the deal, Artemus, you could have it sent here, and I'll send it to you via USPS Priority Mail immediately after it arrives... I'm serious here, if you want the wartch. (And, YES, I AM an evil enabler...)

You ARE an evil enabler Mort! Massdrop has some really good deals. The Tuna is still only $229 and there's a cool Spinnaker for only $79. I want them all! Sigh. Thanks for the offer, but I must think long and hard about these options.

Well, it doesn't matter, I guess, because the brassards are out of my choice for the Victorian Ox Wartch... (Besides, if you were to accept my offer, you'd have to pay Cali state sales tax, which doth sucketh like an Electroluxeth...rotten dismalcrats in snackramento suck more blood than a convention of Dracula Family Reunioneers...)

I always wanted a Valgranges movement, but they are large movements for large watches that I can't pull off.

I had heard that, too, and then I bought one of the Invicter Vipers (?), and it was indeed huge. However, I recall someone over @WL saying that the movement itself wasn't all the big. But then Jumbloat was blathering on about the watch weighing "a full pound." Maybe I should have the movement removed from the Viper and find out, once and for all, just how big it really is (or isn't)...

This watch has a case of 45mm wide by 15mm thick, which is on the big side, as far as this dead man is concerned. ;)
