    With just 3 weeks warning my accountant notified me that I needed to pay back my company loan by the end of the year, so my watch fund is now empty!

    The bracelet is decent quality. Of course it doesnít have the micro adjustment of the DSSD, but I find it easy to get a decent fit and itís comfortable.

    The reason the bezel markings may look a little different is that they are all lumed, unlike the DSSD where only the pip at 12 is lumed. Itís quite startling in the middle of the night!

    Your experience mirrors mine, Andrew - my OceanX loses 1.2 seconds per day, irrespective of position. My DSSD loses 2 seconds per day.
