  • Maybe stretching it for #ThrowbackThursday content...but this is the Waterman Vintage after all. ๐Ÿ˜ Popped off the leather and swapped for this single-pass NATO. Hands way, way...way up if you dig this combo! โœ‹โœ‹โœ‹โ€‰
โ€‰
We sure do. The centre stripe is a near-perfect match to the Old Radium lume, which is particularly evident looking at the bezel pip. And the burgundy strips on either side play off the Moana Pacific script.โ€‰
โ€‰
Enjoying this pairing a lot. And we want to see what you new Waterman Vintage owners have come up for interesting combinations, whatever the style. Post and tag! ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฟโ€‰

  • Another #WatermanWednesday is upon us! 
 
The dual time bezel is absolute simplicity for keeping track of another zone...virtually if not physically. One day we'll be back to crossing the globe.

Transferred the Cognac leather strap off the Leoncino Taiaha to the Waterman Vintage. Complementary tone pairs beautifully, do you agree?โ€‰โ€‰
โ€‰โ€‰
Think the two pieces together make a cool one-two punch. Waterman Vintage now shipping, more details on the limited Taiaha through link in bio. Enjoy your week!โ€‰โ€‰

  • The 42mm Leoncino case has always formed an excellent canvas for @biggsandrew to work his hand-engraved magic. Front and back offer some curves and steps and crescents.โ€‰
โ€‰
Can you pick out the taiaha story motifs as described earlier on the front and back?โ€‰
