Thanks Rikki. Iím seriously looking at this Apollo 8 model but has concern on the 44mm size. It does look huge on the wrist but the black dial with yellow marks compensate them with a fierce look. My AD advised me that theyíll give me a call once a stock arrives.

It wears tiny, I cant figure out why but it does! Could be the lack of auto rotor but defo give it a shot when it comes in.

I had no idea that the DSOTM had a lume Omega logo on the crown. Really nice shot!
