It got here within the hour and I'm absolutely thrilled. Delivery took about three months (ordered 3/7) and in the meantime, prices increased and exchange rates moved in my favor (could it get any better?). The packaging is impressive, but the watch is just gorgeous, particularly the movement. I upgraded from the elabore to the top and am impressed. I couldn't be happier with this. It's my second mechanical watch, after my Lum-Tec B13.
