More on the 6B Chronograph

There are times when you really enjoy writing about watches, and today is one of them. The man behind the beautiful chronograph you see below is also the all time champion in watch packaging - at least in my opinion. This is the 6B Mk 1 Chronograph. Brought to you by the man behind Gas Gas Bones.
Here are the details -


Movement :  Swiss made automatic Valjoux 7750 chronograph.
Functions : Hours, minutes sub dial running seconds with hack function. Sub dial minute and hour totalizers for chrono function.
Case : German made 316L stainless steel brushed and polished detail. 44mm across including crown, 13mm thick.
Strap attachment : Screw in bars. 
Lug width : 20mm
Case back : Machine engraved with crows foot, watch ref and the limited edition (LE) number.
Dial : Flat black painted metal dial with brilliant white print. SuperLumiNova numerals and hands.
Crystal : Flat sapphire.
Water resistant : 100 meters

But let's have some more images -
As you can see, the packaging is first rate.  A beautiful leather portfolio with extra straps and a strap changing tool.
Yes, I want one!

There are a lot of watches out there, but this one speaks to me.  

My understanding is that there are only 20 of these out there, so if you want one - you better move "sharpish" ; )
