Indeed. I recently had a vintage 1960s Date watch that looked very similar to that (though with a black dial), which I loved the look of, but I got a rash from the extra nickel content in the steel of that time, so I sold it. I must say, though, that DJ looks even better. Very nice watch that I don't think I'd have a problem with a manual wind.Definitely. It all comes down to personal preference in the end anyway. I do like the movement of the new ATs, though.
