Well gents, I guess I'll take the honors here after many of you have mentioned it. I know there will many to come and I look forward to all of your pics to come. Thanks again for all the well wishes. I truly hope you all like yours as much as I'm liking this one!

Getting jazzed for mine to come in. I am #4 on the list at my AD. I am sure they'll get a batch of black and white, so by the time my number gets called, I will probably have to decide to take black or wait a while longer for white. It will be a tough call, but I am leaning white right now.

It may be a while before I can officially post on here but your pics will tide me over until then

Congrats on a awesome pick up and being the first on here

Also Rick did the AD give you any insight on why they have got the allocation before it seems anywhere else? Not knocking you pick up far from it just picking my brains why logistically it's happened.

This...........is.........NOT...........COOL...... ...at...........all!


There should be forum rules against this type of shameless enabling. Where the hell are moderators?

A whole bunch of you started the same nonsense after the SD4K came out and despite my best efforts to resist.... I finally had to send a lifeline out to Thanh Do. Thanks to his lightening delivery my fever was cured & I have been all right until now.

Unfortunately, I'm starting to feel a bit strange again and my wife won't be happy!









Oh yeah - congrats to the OP! What a watch and I am absolutely jealous. You should add "116500 Owners Club Founder" to your TRF signature.

Hello Invester,

Do you think this new daytona wears bigger than the previous 116520 ? do you see any differences regarding the case ?
Congratulation from Paris....
