[300612 New Addn.]- [Steinhart]- Nav.B 47 Chrono LSE

I won't consider myself as a diehard Steinhart collector... but all the other 3 divers are the few in my collection of watches gave me the best impression on built quality of all.  I had missed out several other Steinhart L.E releases, this time round... i'm not going to give this a miss!

Just received this magnificent piece from the FedEX delivery guy, shipped from Germany! The package size is about the same as other watches which i had ordered from Germany in the past few months. But i didn't surprise that the box is really so big, that i couldn't find any other packing materials in the box, such as the styro-foams or any other types.
Unwrapped the box, i smiled to myself... "ohhh what's under this piano wood". The lacquered box is really something new to me! Never in my collection, the watches are packed into such boxes.
Flipped up the cover, my oh my oh my.... my eye sight goes to the watch first. Then the rest of the stuff... the strap changing too, another extra set of black colored strap with silver stitches and standard hook buckle, the certificate, the cleaning cloth, the 7750 guide, the warranty booklet... where's the pairing SS bracelet? Ooops... this does not exist at all! hehehe  :D  :D  :D

Onto the watch.
Under the light, the Silver dial looks... silver. Not Chromy White, nor too reflective like a mirror. It's satin finished, and when i tilt the dial to a certain angle, i see streaks of lines burst from the center of the dial... i wonder does any other brudders here do as well?
This is a sandwich dial, with the lumed film under the silver dial. Charcoal grey to be exact, not totally grey!
I would expect the watch to look like what we may see in the Steinhart catalogue, chromy white with in contrast... which will make the watch looks like a panda in my hand. Unfortunately not... I guess it's the studio lighting that created such effect when Steinhart send the prototype for photo shooting.
The size is big... yeah big for asian wrist even though i'm kind of chubby on that part. But that's not a problem, as i had bought another watch a mm bigger than this... The only discomfort that i had felt, is the diamond crown "cutting" to my flesh...
I couldn't comment on the effect of lume right now, as i have not bring this piece to the outdoors, to absorb the light of nature.
Movement wise, this is my first encounter with the TOP SOIGNE movement... and i don't really have much idea on this grade of movement. How to determine from the layout, or decorations...no idea at all.

Without further ado... all the pics galore!

Hot off from the hands of the FedEX guy roughly a couple of hours ago...
The arrival of #55/99 on Steinhart's 2012 L.E release of Nav.B 47mm Chrono with SILVER DIAL.

If the strokes gets longer by a bit... will be 66/99... you know... like that YIN/YANG logo that you see in those fengshui books or shops... 55/99...well fit's my view better

All the contents here... just a little pity... no inclusion of pairing SS "Engineering" bracelet for this model

The watch! Ahhh... how... charming! Wait... is that those "sun burst lines" that we saw on other watches?

Aww... so kind... cleaning cloth and the "birth" cert...

From a certain angle... the dial finish looks satin like

Silver Dial... if it was originally release as chromy white... it sure will look like a little panda!

:smile_13:希望各位兄台不介意我先用已发表的英语表评。。。若有时间我将尝试把中文译版贴上。:smile_13:

表 size 與 7750 芯唔系好夾,所以三個細針太靠中心,睇上去唔自然。
純個人意見,Ching 唔好介意。
