wow, didn't think the DJII would get this many +ve responses.... That is awesome.

Maybe the 41mm is almost the new 36mm ;-)

I love the pictures and the watch.

I would like to see more people get interested in this watch.

Hopefully there will be more dial variations and jubilee bracelet.

There are I believe 8 dial variations that I've personally seen:
- white stick
- black stick
- blue sick
- silver/grey w/blue arabic
- black w/arabic
- silver/grey w/roman
- the black/arabic TT dial
- silver w/diamond marker

There are so many great dials on the DJII, I almost want to buy a 2nd one to use as a dress watch :)

I've posted this one elsewhere, but to contribute something to this thread until I can take some new pics tomorrow:

Call me old fashioned, but I think the over-sized watch thing is a fad, especially for dress watches. I wouldn't go over 38mm. My sub feels good at 40mm but it's a sport watch.

To me the size shouts "HEY LOOK AT ME"..not my deal.

trust me - the 41mm DJII does not look bigger than the 40mm Sub.

What kind of clasp does the DJII have? Can one of you happy owners kindly post a picture of it?
Is it the fliplock clasp or the "Milgauss"-type oysterlock?
