It is not easy to make friends with the Mission Earth as long as one only "knows" the watch from print, catalogue and window display. To be honest, I did not like and ingnored the watch for a long time, it seemed not to fit at all, though I love watches that are larger size than the usual 40-42mm. I am the proud owner of the Spitfire Chrono which is a great but not a big watch and I own the Ref.604 which is an icon Cal.89 of course but too tiny on my wrist. I needed something heavier. So I decided to obey THE VIRUS and go for a third watch from Schaffhausen. When I carefully(!) went to the AD to try on the Mission Earth, I still was convinced this will be a no-go anyway and I'll be out in a minute. Until I had the watch in my hands! I should have known better! The size, the weight, the known technical and the hidden optical details, even the rubber strap suddenly transformed from a not-very-desirable-watch-in-a-catalogue to something great and I mean great. Wrist time was limited since I had actually no time at all but of course the idea of getting this very watch was born. However, though the first thought is always the right one, I did force myself to take my time and paid a second and a third visit to make a final decision. I simply love this watch from the first moment I held it in my hands but I admit it was a long way to even approach the thought of being an owner of the Ingenieur Mission Earth. I am now and extremely proud of it. Some details and wrist shots, have a great week everyone.
