Is Happy Day! X 2 - Picked up two in sweet deals that I could not pass up - Alpina Startimer Big Pilot Chrono and Glycine F104.

I've wanted these for a while, but never wanted them enough to pay what the going prices were. Then, caught a sale at Touch of Modern on the Glycine F104 with a Swiss Automatic movement for $299 and could not pass it up. It's large, but fits well on my 7.5" ish wrist. Looks like a pocket watch conversion to me, but I do like it.

The Alpina Startimer Quartz Chrono is a beauty - I believe Dave here had, or has, one too. Love everything about it. It's 44mm, but wears smaller for some reason. It was on ebay for a good price BIN, but not quite good enough for me to grab it - then, I got an ebay coupon in my e-mail good for $100 off any purchase over $300. That was my chance, so I snapped it up - glad I did.

Here are some pics.

Well done. Those Glycine lugs make that fit the wrist just right. Cheers! (n/t) Robmks 44 October 04, 2018 01:12PM
Thanks, Bob - yes, if it weren't for those lugs, it would certainly be too big! (n/t) Mike D 43 October 04, 2018 06:03PM
