Hope you folks are having a good day.

Bounce781, I was OK with the story and image of manmade objects linking technology through time but lining up the watch fluting with the Shell emblem? That's a whole new level of obsession! I've never seen this watch before although I have been following ...  

Hi MTF - that’s a stunning watch! Gorgeous colours!

I still like the concept of the Eos watch with its sweeping hands all over the place. So, it is with a tinge of regret that I did not follow through. Back in the early 'noughties', there were just so many watches to discover. I was crazy and buying 1 - 3 ...  

Haha. 1-3 watches per month, WOW!!!

There is always another watch to get, right! Cheers

Haha. Me too.
