I love the Vivitar S1 series!

Nothing better than coming home after a great vacation and have a new lens sitting on your doorstep. I am slowly working on my VIV S1 collection and I just added another gem to the lineup.
This is the Vivitar Series 1 28-90mm f/2.8-3.5 with Macro Focusing Zoom.

Shot handheld ISO200 f/3.5 85mm 1/20

100% crop of the focus point.

This is a camera forum, not a watch forum.

It is a nice watch though isn't it. Keeps great time, but it is a repro, even though I could probably afford a real one, I won't even entertain the idea of buying a $4000 watch, thats an IRA to invest in. The most I would spend on a watch is like $350, maybe $500 if it was a helluva deal.
