Black if I had to choose, but to be honest, Iíd switch AD if he doesnít throw-in the orange one as a freebie.

I suggest to get both strap too if possible. This reference is highly on my list.

Lovely piece. If you couldn't get both - I would get orange just to be different.

Congrats, look forward to the live pics.

And just to avoid some confusion on the straps in this thread - it comes with both as standard.

Love the orange one. It's something way more special than the ordinary black rubber.

love the watch and i want it, minus the orange strap. I said the AP funky diver collection was a bit tacky outside of beach wear and i have a feeling that orange strap will be the same. I haven't tried it on with orange though, only black.

Its a Patek... on an orange rubber strap

Congrats

nice get! I think the color just depends on your mood or if this is a "sport" addition to your collection. Orange says it louder. A lot of guys wear a 5167 for every day, and no dress watch.
Enjoy
