Incoming...New "Club" Member

After much internal debate, going back and forth in my mind about the various Club and Tangente models, I decided on the Club Datum with sapphire case back.
I'd like to thank those that contributed to my previous thread, offering photos and advice about Nomos which I knew little about at the time and especially to Ralph (AzHadEnuf) and Matt (mherman77) who PM'd me several times with their thoughts.
So here it is and I think it looks just terrific and is a perfect fit for my wrist.

Thank you Ralph. It's the perfect size for me. I couldn't have gone any bigger and didn't want to go any smaller. And the strap is just gorgeous. The AD swapped out the medium strap for the small which gives me room to tighten or loosen.
Overall, I'm thrilled with this beauty. Thanks again for your help.

Thanks Adam. I'm very excited to own this watch. The dial changes color from silver to cream to white depending on the lighting. And the red/orange accents really make the dial pop. I'm mesmerized by the complete package.

Thank you all. If you haven't considered Nomos yet, I'd take a look.

In answer to your question, the date started to change at midnight and completed the cycle around 12:15.

Congrats Angelo! Looks great! I've been thinking about adding a Nomos over the last year but haven't decided yet. Most likely a Metro or Minimatik.

Thanks Chris. I've seen most of them in person and was quite impressed by the quality.

Thanks Kevin. I love how good it fits.
It's very light and thin and will easily fit under a shirt cuff.

Love that Angelo! Congrats.

It has a certain warmth to it that many Nomos lack (by design of course). That's one I could def see myself wearing.

Thank you Tom.
And you're right about it having a warm look to it, most probably due to the changing dial color. It's not silver or white or cream, but all of them together.
