In my opinion that was a GREAT choice Admin! :thumbsup:

A mate of mine has one and it's a fine piece. Great bracelets on those too, with the nice easy link removal technique.

Thanks for the mostly-resassurances! I feel that I need to add a substantial Rolex to the repertoire soon.. maybe a 41mm Datejust? THey are bloody expensive tho!! And only available in two-tone.. but the Two-Tone white gold one is nice... For whatever reason.. I am not excited by the sport lines.. except possibly the Yachtmaster, but so much money for nothing but a date complication.

Well, I have to say my opinion is a bit biased! :) But that is a gorgeous watch. Hard to say if you would like the Millie more, as they are so totally different:

Image

I am finding the Milgauss actually wears quite small for a 40mm watch, and I am now getting used to the 36mm sizes. That is alright for me, though, but I think you might find it a bit on the small side.
My Omega AT is 41.5mm, and that is now my big watch! It is certainly not too big, but when I do wear it I find it's a bit of an adjustment from my smaller ones.
Did you try the Milgauss on yet? I am really finding that I love the smoothness of the crown more than any other watch I have tried. I also have to admit I like all the kinds of innovations that make it different. I think you would quite like those features as well.
Anyway, I haven't been around here for awhile, good to be back, and have a Happy New Year, and my regards to Shannon as well!
Cheers,
Carl
