Congrats! Acube ok what, I bought my MM300 there. He has quite a lot of NOS.pieces but I didn't see this, very nice.
OT a bit, few years back., I was in King Wah browsing and a lady walked in to demand refund for a watch she ordered wrongly. Long story short, the boss just returned cash back to the demanding customer.

yup, the price was one of the "heads". Asked him which is the more reliable piece & he gave me a few choices. He prince was one of them.

Tbh, the head was only $20! But he kah-char me on the strap for another $20.

Folks with spare 18mm straps can consider hooting the $20heads.

thanks Chris. Besides Andy's "empty promises" on his supposed new shipment, he's generally a friendly guy to deal with.

No wonder I have a good impression of him as my watch was a ready stock inside the show case :lol:

nope, but he's got a TAG Chrono & a blue-burst date just in his private stash for sale. Straps are cheap as chips too, bought 2 x 24mm thick cut Panerai style for 10 bucks each.

Not sure if you guys have seen this, another vintage from A-Cube. "Rodeo" brand. :)Imagejust learnt from the friend who bought this on my behalf, the watch it's only 5 bucks!no guarantee from Andy and "buy at your own risk" kinda deal. But come on, 5 bucks? Perfect xmas present for the xmas season.

Is Acube still there? Went down last Sunday, the shop was dark and all display gone.
Not sure if he has moved or what.

i got an impression he was doing a "fire sale" as well the last time I was there. Well, for all the nay-Sayers about Andy, they may have their last laugh after all. To be honest, I was guilty of nay-saying him before too. If he's reading this from somewhere, my apologies sincerely. I hope he's striving else where, if he has moved.
