It's a happy day, a new watch arrived Bernhardt Binnacle Retro

I just received the Bernhardt Binnacle Retro in Gold and Green. I am in a very honeymoon period right now so please forgive me if this quick post is unabashed. The style and comfort of this watch is remarkable. I have been wanting a retro style piece for a few months (damn you AMC television) and this fits the bill perfectly. When I first opened the box, I was concerned about the size of the watch. It seemed too big and the thickness was more than I expected. However, because of the short lugs, the watch hugs my wrist really well. I really like the depth of the dial and the internal bezel so thickness be damned. It actually isn't as thick as many watches I have owned. Both crowns screw down nicely, and the bi-directional bezel responds well to turning and stopping. I had an internal bezel watch before that was hard to stop where you wanted it to and this watch has absolutely no problem with control. I haven't really tested the lume out so the jury is still out on lume. The bracelet wears comfortably and feels substantial (I'm not sure what that means either but I have seen others post that expression and I am guessing what I feel with this watch is definitely substantial). Oh, I almost forgot. The really small feature that has me smiling everytime I look down at my wrist is the domed crystal. Excellent small detail that makes this watch a keeper for me. The movement is a swiss 2824. Outstanding watch from an outstanding company. I have not owned a Bernhardt before this but have heard great things about them and their customer service. They did not disappoint.

Anyway, if you are like me, you have been scouring the net looking for actual photos of the Bernhardt Binnacle Retro so I added some to this post. Enjoy.
