Dude, I'm glad you noticed it... and that it wasn't near the burners or something it would not have been pretty if you cooked it...
: Mid June, I concluded a deal with Nathan, a New Zealand friend of
: OTD for an Heuer Diver. Soon after I went for 2 weeks on
: holidays with my family and I was expecting to find the new
: piece on my return. By first week of July, still no sign of the
: watch and I started to share my concern with the seller. Belgium
: is a rainy country and in particular during this first half of
: the year. Although we are in the summer, the chances to have
: diner outside are very little. However, thanks God, one day it
: was sunny, 25° Celsius and my wife, who reacts very quickly,
: brought back good meat to have a BBQ. Our BBQ is in the garden
: at the back of the house. I removed the cover and prepared
: everything to grill our diner when I noticed a small chips
: plastic bag hidden between the legs of the BBQ; I went to throw
: it away when I realized it was a postal bag coming from New
: Zealand! Inside, the Heuer Diver in its nice original blue box,
: unaffected by its outside stay. It was like X-mas.
: None knows since when the pack has been put there by the courier
: service. Let’s imagine that the consistent rainy weather would
: have not stopped the whole summer . . . ! A small word in the
: letters box would have been perfect but apart that, I can say
: that the NZ postal service is very efficient. Thank you Nathan
: for this nice deal.
