 It doesn't look bad, but it also looks rather "naked" to me.  Seems small for a dive watch and it looks like the bezel is missing (as it is indeed missing).  I absolutely love it though because it gives me hope for a 36mm Ranger.    It seems to me though that the Black Bay Black is the most popular Black Bay and therefore isn't a sleeper.  Good points you made about it though.  Absolutely, and I can't understand the decision to put the shield on the Black Bay Bronze.  I...
 Nice pickup.  I have that one myself.  Really annoyed I didn't jump on the "cream" one when I had the chance.  Did you get it from Cabourn direct or maybe Rakuten?  Fit is Authentic line.  I went with my usual 50.   I'd say it's simply a CPO shirt.  You can wear it as a jacket, but it's not that thick if you ask me.  I wear it over a woven shirt.  I could see layering it yet again with some over that if you can make it all work.  
Looks like Nomos is doing a Neomatik Tetra.
 I agree with @Dino944 (he's always giving great advice) that it looks fine.  Your shirt cuff doesn't help as it looks a bit boxier, but overall I think you're fine.  I also wouldn't be bothered with what anyone else thinks.  If someone told me that it looks like a ladies watch I'd politely inform them that it's vintage and explain how watches have been grossly oversized in most cases in recent times.   My first "nice" watch was a 90s Tag Heuer that must be 34-36mm....
 One thing that I didn't mention which I think is a positive is that Nato.  I went for a similar look with one of my VSAs.  I had a red bezel diver with a green nato with a thin red stripe down the center and it looked great.  Gave the watch more of a "military" feel than a "diver" feel, but I loved it.    No, but Govberg might know of someone or perhaps even have someone in house.  
Black Bay is great, and I don't see UPS here, but not a fan of the Bronze edition.  Would have preferred a green bezel version.   Looking forward to seeing what happens at Basel.
 Oh, I'm sure.  One reason why I haven't and probably won't go for a CS3111 or CS3110 at the moment is that I have my eyes on other watches, one in particular, and if I go for another watch no matter how much I like it I'll be cutting into the budget while at the same time taking away from the wrist time of other watches I prefer.  I think it looks massive.  Of course it's going to at that size, but I'm not a fan.  I think if you're going to go with a watch like that then...
 Great looking watch!  Someone beat me to the punch a week or so back, but I echoed the sentiment on this watch.  In fact like you note, I was also saying how it's pretty much vintage already.  While I like "fauxtina" on a lot of watches, this look somewhat vintage without it and I would think the lume would color over time.  One other thing about this watch is that I've seen it on various straps and it looks great on a variety of different colored straps.  Oh, and like...
 Based on the options in your post I'd definitely go with a no-date Sub, especially if you're going to be a "one watch" guy or if you're only considering one dive watch or similar looking watch for your collection.  I'm not a fan of the dates on Rolexs, though it wouldn't keep me from getting one of the models I like, and that's another reason for me.  I also think it's the most versatile and most classic Rolex of the ones you've listed.  The Fifty Fathoms really doesn't...
 Good to know they're taking orders from over here.
