My search for a watch & its result

Well now..hey all! 

After not having worn a watch for years, I (for reasons unknown) suddenly felt the need to have something on my wrist again. Not a functional digital device, but a proper mechanical one, put together with love and attention. 

So, the search was on. What do the French, Swiss, Germans and Japanese have on offer nowadays? And what kind of watch do I actually want? Sporty, dressy鈥hich complications? I early on decided I wanted a blue dial and a 40mm diameter. That helped narrow the search quite a bit.  After a couple of evenings on the web, the shortlist looked this:

Finally went with the GO Senator Excellence Panorama Date Moon Phase. Tried it on in the store and dit NOT want to take it off again :) Beautiful clean lines, finishings and finely crafted details and mechanics. Also got a good deal on it. Also found the backstory appealing, combined with the fact (at least, that鈥檚 what I read) GO only manufactures 15,000 pieces a year against IWC's (in my line-up its closest competitor) > 150,000. 

Anyway, very happy with my purchase, enjoying it hugely every day & looking forward to learning more about the wonderful of watches on this forum. 

Congrats and welcome!

Sweet watch! I have a pair of GOs in my collection and love them. You鈥檙e going to love it more and more as you wear it. Watch for a lifetime.

Love both the date and the moon phase. The watch stands out, yet it doesn't feel forced.
