I watched a YouTube video the other day and discovered a watch witch I fell in love with instantly.
Anyway I was knocked out with this particular piece while surprised by the fact that it was not on a watch channel but a motorcycle channel (another of my passions) .
The guy doing the video , who goes by the name Stuart Fillingham enjoyed his own personal watch so much he made the video to demonstrate that motorcycle riding and mechanical watch wearing are perfectly compatible, despite alot of advice to the contrary.
At the end he explained who he got this from as the brand are or have been difficult to come across in the UK untill recently. Well over the next few days I checked the site out and found that this company are the only UK based firm who deal solely with the brand in question. I also found alot of other watch's which I like from them as well and had at one point 8 items in my basket😆
Well at the end of the week (yesterday for me) I skimmed it down to two. Then to the original piece I had seen Stuart speaking about. Pulled the trigger and to my disappointment got a message that the item I had ordered was out of stock and please go back to choose an alternative.
Very disappointed I decided to call them directly and spoke with a very helpful gentleman who explained that I had actually managed to purchase their very last one in the colour I had chosen. Also the model was discontinued and they won't be getting any more.
So hopefully it will be arriving sometime tomorrow, and I'm really excited to see it.
The watch is nothing out of the ordinary though it is quite unique in a way being a lovely mix of pilot and field watch. It's a brand I was unaware of untill this week but I feel it will be an absolute favourite .
I just hope Royal mail aren't on strike tomorrow.
The brand is Orient Star the watch is the Outdoor Sport ( I think🤷) I look forward to getting it on the wrist and posting a few pics.
I enjoy simple well made classic designs in most things , watches are one of them. My favourites are usually tool watches of some kind.
