Aquascope “Boat Race” model with its self-winding movement.

What I like about this watch is the Satin fine line dial, they are made as a simple way to carry out the touch up for a sport watch design, the size is 44mm, bold and large, clearly to tell the time, big bezel that could not be ambiguous in tell the timer.
Antireflective Sapphire crystal, and Big Hour Pointer is a nice feature. If there is shoulder beside the crown would be a step close to perfect.
Blue is the Colour of the year for Watch, it is never lose the pace in keeping up the fashion. The Red Pointer second is a Icing on the cake.
I am Checking what Special Number we have in HK JR AD so that we can reserve one!
