    Well, to be honest I compared them in the window. I gleaned all I needed to from there.

    I did turn the bezel on the Night Diver though, that felt good. Not as 'precise' as I expected maybe but solid. And since I never turn my bezels anyway it wouldn't really concern me.

    Bezel turning is a new fetish for me. Love it.

    Yeah, the new Aquaracer has a very nice bezel action but is limited to 60 positions rather than the expected 120 at this price range

    Oooh that is good, I didn't know. Actually think I prefer 60, easier to quickly align at 12 without much consideration

    Ah, that explains why it felt 'different' perhaps. Like I said I don't usually turn bezels, I don't know what made me do it with this one...

    Yes that's true, but also makes timing things less precise. Not the biggest deal though

    If precision greater than the nearest minute maters, you probably need to use a Chrono (or a phone)

    Eh it's less a matter of precision and more not having to mentally add or subtract ~30 seconds to the hash mark on the bezel. I play with the bezels for food prep so it's nice to know that 2 minutes is 2 minutes, without having to think about it beyond that.

    Like I said, not the biggest deal though

    I very rarely take photos myself. For one thing I feel like a dick and for another I doubt very much that any photos I take in shop lighting are going to do it any more justice than professional pics.
    I didn't buy it on the spot cos it was £5000. If I had £5000 to burn I probably would have though.

    I think I missed the dato when it was released, that looks really good. Better than the ice king imho

    Just had my first walk around the town where I work since March 2020. Had a look at both ADs, noticed both had the white/silver Dato 45 in the window, but no sign of the blue one. Also 'Stephans' still have that Oxford Street Carrera LE in the window...

    Surprised to see Stephans only had the green titanium Aquaracer, and Michael Jones didn't have any of the new models. Maybe they had them inside?
