The Belluna Small Seconds

It might finally be that my seemingly unending quest to replace my father's gold Mido might finally be nearing an end!

For those of you just tuning in, my father was given a gold-filled Mido the day before I was born -

And that watch was dutifully passed on by me to my niece this summer, leaving me somewhat "Midoless".  Not exactly bereft, but notably "wanting".

But back to the new Belluna - or maybe to put another way, the next "Henki Mido".

A 40 mm rose tripartite gold pvd stainless steel case with a sub dial second indicator at 6 o'clock (my personal favorite).  ETA's 2825-2 ticks faithfully between the sapphire crystal front and display back.  

Needless to say - I want one!!!
