As has been mentioned before, I’ve been after a moon phase for a while (my Seiko came and went in double-quick time, but that was for reasons of necessity). However, when I was asked whether I’d consider a trade – GO for GO – my reaction had it been anyone else that asked would have been a polite “no thanks”. I’m bound to say, though, that the GO Senator Lunar Reserve de Marche is not only quite a rare find but it’s also a very, very beautiful watch. It fulfils my yearning for this particular complication and is probably a little dressier than the Venue in any event.
All in all I’m more than happy, particularly as I reckon with a degree of certainty that the traded watch will find it’s way back to me at some point. That’s a win/win, isn’t it?
