Excellent - thanks for sharing. I think the SD is my favourite from your collection but they are all great watches.

That’s about as close to perfection as a three piece SS collection gets in my eyes. Congratulations on an awesome collection.

Thank you all for the positive feedback, much appreciated.

I did originally want a Rhodium Dial DJ, as then I'd have a white, black, and grey in my repertoire. However, I struggled to find a rhodium in my exact configuration, and I've always been very fond of classic black dial Roley's; in a matt or gloss, the contrast they offer against a SS bracelet just works perfectly.

I realised when buying my DJ - and this is more luck than thought out skill - my collection has a 40mm, 41mm, and a 42mm. So now if (IF!) I ever buy another piece, it has to be in sequence.

Thank you! Yes, I really like that piece. It's understated elegance, and a timeless look that I think will always suit me. Then again, I say this about all my watches!!!
