Lovely that, really like the offset date window as well but the dial is what makes it.
I get what you mean about titanium, I imagine you’ll have to look down every now and then to make sure it’s still there!

Tried this on a while ago and was ridiculously light:

I love the design of these, the thinness, the bracelet, the finishing is lovely in the flesh.

Just the brand puts me off, 12k on a watch from a brand that knocks out £40 bottles of fragrances.

I love a lot of things about Octo Finissimo. The movement , thinness and the bracelet are all very well executed.

Troyboy, eBay do £1 final fees fairly often and they are authenticating watches for free atm. Maybe ask seller to list?

Depends on the brand and where you’re located. As an example if it were Rolex and you were in London you could go to St James Square.

I think the change was a good decision, this one is much nicer than your last one. Looks great here.

I wouldn't trust Ebays authentication process especially if the watch is on the pricey side. If you can meet up with the private seller at an AD or watch repair shop to have them take the back off it and show it's real first that would be a much safer process.

You could also request that the seller gets a free quote for a service for it because they won't issue one for a moody. No service quote or no original paperwork would set off alarm bells to me.

I'm guessing you'd have to know your AD really well (multiple pineapples) to be able to do this?

Thank you, that was exactly my thoughts when this became available.. titanium is a joy to wear… Putting on a gold watch after this would feel very odd indeed.
