Daytona Twins

Finally picked up my white-dial Daytona. I was originally planning to sell my black-dial, but looking at the picture, I might just keep it.

Thanks again to Josh Licht of Davidson & Licht at Valley Fair. Personally, I wouldn't buy new watches from anyone else.

You know what's better than one Daytona?

White with ceramic is more sporty and casual, while black with steel bezel is more refined and dressy. Two very different looking watches...I would keep both!

Amazing duo. I will hopefully do the opposite scenario. I have the white dial 116520, so you'll guess what I'll have next.

Plenty of room for both IMO. I'll be adding the Black C to my white 20 in the future. A 116500/116520 combo IMO makes for a more versatile set then two of the same I think.

Congrats!
