This, of course, came with rubber and leather straps and I got the bracelet myself not too long ago. I'm glad that I did even if it has no fine adjustment at all.

It's a great watch. You can't go wrong if you're okay with the size.

Love the Deepstream. Haven't worn mine in a while so will need to rectify that...

I also have mine on the bracelet as well for more versatility.

Compliments on the Namiki Vermillon as well. Is that an Emperor or Yukari Royale? I have several Emperors in Maki-E and an assortment of Danitiros Genkais and Mikados in Maki-E and also several in Chinkin 😁👍

That's the Emperor

although I do have a Royale, as well, for the superior portability. You, sir, have impeccable taste! I have a Danitrio Mikado, a Hakase and another on order. And I need to write a whole lot more than I do.

Very nice and as stated you also have exquisite taste sir 👍. I never owned a Hakase but have heard they are great...

will have to order one sometime soon but would rather do it in person if I can find the time to take a trip to Japan as I would like a custom order 😁

And I agree that we ALL need to write more in this digital age. One of the many reasons why I only write with fountain pens as they give me the urge to write more 👍

It would be great to do it in person and meet the master

but Ryo san is actually very prompt and very helpful with custom orders placed through the website. As for the pens themselves, I can't fault them in my limited experience. As nicely executed as others of the same ilk. The wait list is about a year currently.

Thanks is for the info as I did not know the wait was a year at this point...

It would indeed be great to visit his workshop to see and meet Ryo san as it would link the pen with a memorable occasion. Hopefully I will be able to do that sometime in the future 😉

Lovely overseas deepstream, such a versatile watch

I wonder if you sourced the bracelet directly from VC or from the secondary market?

Thank you

 By: batholith : February 15th, 2020-03:37
I sourced it directly through the local distributor along with an extra half link, just in case. It took a couple of months for it to get to me.

I see, thank you!

Enjoy it and hope to see more photos of your stunner
