    Congrats! How do you find it in the wrist? I went to the AD and they didn't have it in stock or the Autavia re-issue, so could not try it on.

    Are they numbered on the case back?

    As

    I asked the AD to locate a JH85 for me if possible and they had one within 10 days. Having only seen the pictures and read a few comments about the height of the watch. So I went to the AD with the idea that I probably wouldn't like it seeing that I'm super picky about my purchases. As you can see I didn't hold out too long. I first asked them to hold for me for some thinking time (I do this to avoid impulse purchases). I went back four days later and tried it on again thinking I would be strong enough to pass it up f not 150% sure I wanted it. After putting it back on and also managing a 10 percent discount I pulled the trigger without hesitation. The number is somewhere on the back of the watch (its in the safe now so cant tell you exactly where it is located). I have number 300. Many have commented on watch forums on the height of the watch but I think its absolutely perfect for a sports model. It has a weighty sports feel which I missed in the Rolex Daytona. The box set you get with the watch is quite something. The outer box is huge with the actual watch box inside. There is a hidden shelf underneath with a copy of the Autavia book inside. the box set tells you that this is a special something. The AD even said he had not seen such a box set.....

    Thank you for the response. I'll have to go in again, I left my number as they were going to order one in, but still haven't heard from them.

    Cheers!
