Intro, just joined

Just picked up an AK 116900.

After I read a some comparison threads, and my dealer got one in for live look-see, I own it !
Thanks to all the folks for their write-ups.

Thanks all. The reviews were dead on about photos vs fur real.
The bracelet is very comfortable compared to my Ball ENG II Diver.
The Ball's bracelet has the link that is not a smooth transition to the clasp.
The shape of my wrist I guess. No matter where I place the half link.

No problem with th AK's bracelet.
Liking the lume!
