As a first time watch buyer it wasn’t easy making an online purchase. I had to do a lot of research on both - what watch to get, and which retailer to get it from.
Having watched a tonne of videos on everything that’s available in the 1K$ range for a dress watch, I finally settled on the understated elegance of the Junghans Maxbill design. The only question left was what size to get. Personally, I prefer a watch with a smaller presence on my wrist. So, I hesitantly chose 34 mm and wondered if I had chosen far below the modern standard for a male wrist.
As for the retailer, there weren’t enough reviews available to pick from but Iguana sell seemed to be legit and I was getting the best deal on this watch in the precise configuration I wanted, sapphire crystal and all. Once again, I reluctantly took a shot wondering whether it was ok to order a watch from outside the US.
But here’s the good part, I was right on both counts. I picked a great watch from a great retailer.
The watch arrived in a few days, nicely packed and secure. Iguana sell’s email notifications about the delivery were on point as well.
About the watch, its a beautiful dial that both me and my wife absolutely love. The strap is ok, but I already replaced it with a burgundy leather strap that gives it a bolder presence on my wrist. Lastly, as a first time purchaser I actually enjoy engaging with the dial every morning to hand wind the watch.
This deal has my stamp of approval for sure!
They shipped this at lightning speed! The price was great and watch is amazing!
Thank you very much for the wonderful service and communication throughout. The pen itself was lovely - really captured the black hole theme along with the subtle fleck detailing. However, the music nib was not quite right for me - but I will purchase again from you once deciding on my next pen and nib combination.
