Great review. Only had mine for about 5 months so far. Currently trying to trade it or sell it as I've realized that i like my watches a little more sporty. Glad there are spill people out there that support and love the original 36mm President.

I can't believe that I missed this the first time round!!
Excellent review Eric.
I am contemplating re joining the club. But in my case it would be the same colour dial with the stick batons��
