    I have the Rindt & JH85 so getting this one was a bit hard to justify, but my connection to this great community made it impossible for me to resist.

    It’s now morning and I’m still debating pulling the trigger.....that’s how good you’ve done DC.

    All of the elements are well thought through and executed. If the Autavia reedition was a few mm thinner it would have been a no brainer, but not being able to wear it under a cuff still presents a mental hurdle.....although then I’d have a JH85 and not be contemplating this stunner.

    All done!::rimshot::

    Truly hope that anyone who wanted one did get one. If not, there is a waitlist..and I'd expect a few people to drop out along the way (already today I had two people wanting to cancel because they'd bought "by mistake" :whistling:)

    Really, bought by mistake. I'm guessing there would have been about 5 steps to go through to actually purchase. Some people....

    OK, so I'm late to the party. Just added myself to the wait list. What are my chances?

    I am really, really glad everyone is praising the leather strap and agreeing it looks much better than the bracelet.

    I also prefer the strap. However, I think the bracelet would be much better if it was lightly brushed instead of polished.

    Agree, bracelet is a bit shiny. I really love the strap though. Just hope it fits!

    Congratulations on the sell out, didn't think it would take very long (that was a lot quicker than the Alec Monopoly watch as well).

    There's really nothing to compare between the two :)

    Agreed... it's also at least 1000 times betterer than that awful Hodinkee Skipper Carrera abomination.:)

    Disagree. The Skipper is a beautiful Carrera.
