Laureato 38 mm in blue πŸ”₯ I am so excited! Could not wait to share the amazing news with my friends. It came watch head only, so I will have the stainless steel bracelet mounted next week. Wrist shots to follow! 🍻πŸ₯‚πŸ€πŸŽ‰

Hey Yaco,

I found it on one of the big watch listing sites . It was an international shipment from Europe, so the dealer and I agreed the reptile strap should be removed prior to shipment. I didn’t want to deal with CITES on top of the 2 day customs delay… It came ... 

Pretty cool and good move to remove the strap!

Wow, that is gorgeous! 🀩

Looking good bro. Coffee again soon 🀝

Congratulations, a great watch with perfect size.

But i am curious how it came head only. Previous owner should has, at least, rubber or bracelet as that is how it sold.

Cheers, and thank you!

 
 By: Aquaracer1 : July 4th, 2024-02:52
It came on a reptile strap. The dealer and I did not want to deal with CITES for the international shipment, so it was shipped head only. I’ve ordered the stainless steel bracelet separately and will have it next week!

Congratulations Jesse πŸ•Ί

Look forward to your wrist shot. So you have gone from 38 mm silver dial to 42 mm blue dial to 38 mm blue dial. Quite a journey… let’s hope this is the one πŸ’― 🀝

Hey Marc!
