Friday . . . My Blue Period ? ? ? 1564 Skipper Has Arrived
In Response To: TGIF - almost! ()

This Skipper 1564 arrived today, and coming out of the box, it winked at me. Yes, my second blue dial of 2018!!

Quick observations:

  • 1564 must easier on the wrist (and my eyes) than the 15640 . . . for the same reason that I prefer 1163 to 11630 or 11063
  • Heuer oyster bracelet looks fantastic on this watch . . . grains of rice can feel and look a bit "light" on the 1970s C-shape cases . . . extra "beef" of this oyster bracelet gives this watch excellent balance
  • something fun about the asymmetry / colors of the recorders
  • this bezel does not like to be photographed.

This is my first 1564 . . . with only one 1563 in my collection . . . fun watch!!

What will you wear this weekend?



: Thank goodness it's almost Friday!! A late day swap to one of my
: all time favorites!
