    Definitely agree that the story that goes with getting the watch is a really important part of the whole experience - every watch needs a story.

    They're both exquisite. At the risk of asking a stupid question, what are the differences between an OP Date & a Datejust?

    Aqua Terra? I got my wife a 28mm quartz one for 2K (disclaimer; she chose it. Left to my own devices I'd have bought her a Tudor).

    I like mine to have a little movement, dangling like a bangle is not a good look & probably bad for the bracelet. My wrist swells & l like it to be a bit loose so it doesn't mark the skin when I take...

    I like to wear the bracelet sufficiently loosely that I can get a finger underneath it. When my wrist swells it's still comfortable. It's just the way I like it. I took my DJ to the RSC to have a...

    Speedmaster all day long. Classic proportions, easy to read, works with everything except water, plenty of variety in terms of straps to change it up. It's a lot of watch for the money.

    David,
    I was comparing the Sub to my Seamaster 2254 & Moonwatch. Against them I found the Sub hands to be thin & less readable.

    Exactly what I've found. Dull or neutral light helps readability, bright light (sunlight, shop lights etc) reduces it. I've come to the DJ from a Moonwatch so that needs to be taken into account.
