Incoming SD43 & Thank You

My biggest worry going in was it was going to be too big on my 7 1/8Ē wrist. Not even close. So happy I finally made the move.

Looks awesome on you wrist man.
The more you wear it the more youíll discover how perfect and beautiful this reference is.
I love how the dial and bezel change from pitch black to anthracite depending on lighting condition.
The only issue I have with this watch is that it is almost like a magnet to peopleís attention ;-)

Thanks for the recommendation. I actually went to his site after I read your original post. I saw the watch that you purchased just hours before and then read that he has another. Suddenly, there seems to be many available. I hope to be posting my own picture in the very near future. I had my friends on last month and have not stopped thinking about it since. For me, EVERYTHING about the watch is perfect.

Sd43

I have been wearing Subs and SD's since the late 1970's and this is by far the best of the bunch. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I like mine.

I find myself lovingly gazing at my SD43 multiple times a day. When I look at it to see what time it is, I find myself having to do it twice because I get distracted by how awesome it looks during the first glance. It has become my most prized possession.
