Icon20 Best looking Daytona? Bumblebee INCOMING!!

I have a new jubilee Pepsi, that square case is too big for my wrist as a daily,
I have a 36mm explorer, which is too small as a daily.

Been watching this Daytona for a few weeks now, didnt know it even existed for some reason, and imo one of the most striking dials, ive ever seen

Oysterflex bracelet - really comfortable and a really sharp contrast against the yellow gold case of the watch.

And the weight of this thing, makes me never want to buy a steel watch again.

I feel like Ive truly levelled up.

The OF does contrast excellently with the gold. I’ve also heard they’re supremely comfortable.

Lovely watch mate. Was considering putting my name down for this at my ad but went rose gold oysterflex with baguette dial instead. Although these pics are making me think twice.

You could pull off a DSSD with that extra wrist width from the arm hair

I only buy grey now, since I’m on the goldsmiths naughty list.
So managed to get it on the grey, fairly straight forward

Stunning. I get it, the weight can be a issue in a daily.

I had the same Daytona on an alligator deployment clasp and liked it a lot.

Beautiful watch.

Not that it matters, but I have only seen the Bumblebee name used on the opposite dial of this. Yellow dial with black sub dials. This config is usually referred to as a PN dial. Even though I think PN can apply here as well....Ok, I'm going back to none of this matters....
