Really striking! Ive been eyeballing this or a similar colour scheme in the 5454 for a little bit.

How does it wear compared to your Rolex? From the photo it looks pretty close?

Thanks it wears slightly larger but thats what I wanted in this piece, smaller dressy watches never seem to last in my collection. This hugs the line of sporty / dressy very well for me

Very nice Wayne, congratulations

I love the way those numerals appear to float on the face of the dial
