GS? something like this maybe.
:eek:mg:What a stunning beauty :tongue4:
Thank you very much for sharing, Bjorn! I think JPY 30,000 will not make to much custom fees, so could you send it to me ASAP please? :c017:

Have a nice day,
Mathieu

PS: and yes, your guess is the closest, but my "Grand Debut" with GS will be of course widely more humble (not to say "common") than what is shown here...

Eventually, with astronomical Belgian custom fees :eek:, the watch arrived :yahoo:

Not exactly my birthday watch (it's from 1968), but if I don't find quickly a 5722GS or a 44KS from April 1965, this one will definitely fit the bill for my soon coming "big 50" :grin:

First impressions:
Everything has been said about this model to make it very desirable :ecomcity:... but YES, ALL is TRUE :72:
This is a beautiful piece of workmanship, and this one come in nice wabi-sabi condition (old 70ish bracelet was so stuck in the lug holes that I bet this is a "one-owner" piece).

I love the very plain dial, the smooth seconds hand, the big crown, the lovely medallion etc. AND the sharp case that give me the impression that it has never been polished (but I've never seen a NOS one in flesh)
I even love the small spot at 00h03m30s, that made this beautiful little machine affordable for me :wub:

Sorry, my camera is dead :(, so here is a (fair) picture from the seller.

Thank you for reading, I'm so happy to share my joy with you, WIS :93:

Cheers,
Mathieu
