Here's the tracking details of my recent Rally Custom:

Date Time Location Tracking Event
29-03-2010 11:22 Manchester Piccadilly Depot Parcel delivered
29-03-2010 02:36 Manchester Piccadilly Depot Out for delivery
27-03-2010 00:08 Manchester Piccadilly Depot Arrived at delivery depot
26-03-2010 20:03 National Hub Sorted in hub
26-03-2010 17:32 International Hub En route to delivery depot
25-03-2010 21:01 International Hub AWAITING CUSTOMS CHARGING
25-03-2010 20:14 International Hub Arrived in destination country

I was all ready to have to cough up some tax for this, but lo and behold, no charge was made despite it being held in Customs. Not known that before, nor had the postie...

Great addition there. Very classic vintage sporty feel for the dial and case.
Never seen this, but wish I hope to find one myself.
Get some wrist shots up asap. ;)

Cheers,
Dave

Very sharp Citizen Sweephand, there are so many cool little features there! :)

I especially like those little silver dots from 12 to 2! 8)

I think they were just "charging" it up for you, so it would be running when you received it! :D I like that image, seeing the Customs agent at his desk, swinging your watch back and forth for you! ;)

Enjoy that unique beauty!

These don't turn up very often, it's a nice one to have - hope you can find one. I don't normally do wrist shots - will have to give it a try :)

thanks Thomas - I hadn't thought of that, a WIS in Customs maybe? ;) It was running when it arrived....

great luck man. Man I really have to start looking at some of these vintage citizen sportdivers. I wonder if anyone here has a decent collection of them to help guide the way?

One of my new aquisitions went from Heathrow to Fed Ex depot nearby, then Gatwick for a few days whilst customs prodded and poked it, was there 4 days before they released it, but with no charge, brand new around £200 watch.
I reckon every Fed Ex worker must have tried it on, before sending it on to Manchester for delivery. I'm not saying which watch it was (Say that after a few beers) as I still expect to see some sort of charge arrive.

Good luck.
