Just ordered a Spinnaker Bradner. After seeing Boourns' Seiko Super Compressor and yinzburgher's Dan Henry, I had an itch for one and decided on the Spinnaker. Can't wait to get it in the mail. Anyone have this model?
That's really a unique look. I like it. Can't wait to see more pictures of that bezel!

INCOMING!
I've been wanting this watch for a really long time now. Been planning on getting it for my birthday in October, but a used one popped up and I couldn't pass up the deal!
Plus it's only 2 months away from my birthday so basically there!
So excited! Should arrive tomorrow

That's awesome! I think about the 104 and some other Sinn models but still haven't ever owned one and they kind of went off my radar. Came close a time or two on a used 556. If you don't mind throwing up a pic and a few words in the new watch thread, I'd really like to see what you think. Now that there are a few more colors of the 104 it has crossed my mind again.

Seeing this made me second-guess not getting the red bezel, it looks great!! While I know I'd like it, I'm not sure I'd love it enough to keep it around. Too many of my more recent purchases have been "catch and release" so I decided that I need to be more discerning, even if it means not getting a really nice watch from time to time! Please share some pics though once it comes in. I'd be interested to see more "in the metal" pics that aren't for marketing.

That said, I did still order the black bezel version of this watch!

I think one of my favorite touches about this watch, aside form the awesome knurled and signed crown, is the mean looking puffer fish (fugu) on the case back:

Yeah I was hesitant to order the red but since I've now got a few black divers I wanted something different. I noticed the red is already sold out now too. My shipment already left Hong Kong, I ordered without a box so hopefully I get no duty charges Image

I went ahead and bought the last of the "battleship grey" dialed Minuteman A11, while still at preorder pricing.
Very interested in the Ameriquartz movement and glad to know that part of the proceeds will go to Home for Our Troops.

Now I just got to wait until October/November for delivery...

Many thanks to @yinzburgher for sharing this deal that I ultimately decided to go for. The Zodiac Grandrally in green. I have been thinking about getting a green watch recently, but I'm well stocked up on divers. I've loved the Grandrally design for a while now, in fact it was the first bookmark I made under "Watches I Like" in my notebook. Really excited to have a chance to own one and experience it. I'm really particular so I can never predict how a watch will strike me exactly in the metal, but I'm looking forward to this one.

So jealous. I've been waiting for the bracelet to come in stock. They're supposed to be online on September 1st. And a new black and silver versions are coming in November. I might just get the black on bracelet on September 1st
