Not a Basel order but SIHH, Picked this up recently! An absolute beauty!


Good for you, Scot! That is a fantastic looking chronograph. Great retro vibe and classic look.

Big congrats! :D

Thanks Jim, was not expecting to get it so soon, created a bit of a stir in the house when it came so quickly after picking up the Chronoliner. Wife was somewhat less than pleased, she decided that she needed to have a Colt Skyracer which she had wanted for the longest time! I can only be thankful that was the one she went for rather than one of the pricier options she had been eyeing!

Justin, she loves it, the 45mm, although large for her does not bother her at all. The breitlite material totally offsets the 45mm size as far as my wife is concerned. It has become her watch of choice for everyday wear as she goes about her day. As she puts it, "I don't have to worry about scratches or dings, I can do anything I want with it on!"

That's good to know. I've been tossing around the idea of adding a quartz watch and I keep coming back to the Skyracer for exactly what your wife says. It's between that and an Aerospace.
