Here are the first pics of this new watch..

It has a display caseback which is also signed...

Specifications from the Orient Company site:

Mechanical Movement: ORIENT caliber 46A41 Made in Japan
Self winding movement
21 jewels
21600/hour vibrations
Stainless steel case
Crystal glass
Screw see-through caseback (crystal glass), screwed-down crown
Urethane strap
Water resistant to 100m
Diameter 43.0mm
Thickness 12.7mm

The urethane strap is patterned along the lines of the tread pattern for the tyres used in the 2007 rally season by Marcus Gronholm and BP-Ford World Rally Team. The dial has the number 3 and Gronholm inside an area representing the side window of the car. The colours are those used on his car.

On the back of the watch is Marcus Gronholm's signature which is also on the urethane strap. The rotor is engraved with details of the 2007 World Rally win by Marcus Gronholm and the BP-Ford World Rally Team. On the side of the watch is the number in the series which is limited to 2007 watches worldwide.

The small details have been looked after too. The pillow for the watch is signed as well and the box is in the team colours.

This watch is really comfortable to wear.. Case is of the same design as the CFM00001B, but doesn't feel as bulky and heavy. Lume is much better than the CFM00001B as well.

Currently averaging -2 secs per day.

I am really pleased, because I didn't expect to get hold of one of these after I saw them advertised, and in fact missed out on my first attempt at purchase.

And now the car model to go with the watch..
