    That's very nice; is it a jumbo or 34mm?

    He's a handsome fella and you can't find anything there not to like!

    Ironically, I've recently been lusting after his bigger brother - the champagne-dialled Rolex Datejust:

    Too vanilla for some, perhaps, but I think these watches are timelessly elegant.

    Lovely watch. Been keeping an eye on these on eBay, unfortunately a little too rich for me at the moment.

    Enjoy

    I'd like to see something like that in the current Tudor lineup, it's lovely.

    Congratulations it looks great, in essence the Tudor version of the Rolex Date. Although 34mm may sound small in todayís market, they wear surprisingly well. Fine watch.

    Mine says hi!
    Looks beautiful, the downside is that it's not an auto and there's no quick set date, so I only wear it for a couple of days at a time and have to match the date to the watch.
    Its a pain having to unscrew the crown every time it's wound..

    If you wind past 12 then back past 8:30 then the date should change. Itís a sort of quick set but not all of my vintage Tudors have had it

    Thanks for the info, but it's still a lot of messing about for a watch that has to have the screw down crown released every time it's wound.
    Ergonomic it isn't.
