Tommy Bahama Silver Safari

Post by mrneddles on 2012-08-23, 09:16

Won this on eBay last week and it was on my desk this morning. I have a soft spot for these TB sterling silver cased watches. They currently are out of production. I had the square Silver Palm in the past, but is was gift from my ex-tormentor(wife), so I jetisoned it.

This one has a Chronoswiss Timemaster like case, 40mm diameter. The dial is a metallic taupe/dirty gold dial with embossed palm trees. The silver in the case gives it a very white hot, almost white gold appearance. The lugs are pretty thin and cheap feeling though.

I am going to scrap the canvas strap and get a Tommy Bahama leather basketweave strap.

Just a quick iPhone pic:

The brown basket weave I think would look nice.

That is a cool looking watch and the strap will only improve it.

You do realize, Neds, that you're also gonna have to purchase a nice pair of harachi sandals and a taupe and lizard green Hawaiian shirt...oh, and a bushy-bushy-blonde-hair wig, too...

Joking aside, that is a different looking watch, in a good way. Like the onion style crown. Interesting dial. And the silver case does stand out. With my propensity to bash watches off any door jam, I would be afraid to scratch the silver to peices. The basket weave strap will look great. Cheers to a nice watch.

I really like it, Neds! And it opens my mind up a little bit further...oh, and I'm glad you already have the sandals! What a Face
