You actually went into Starbucks based on a recommendation from the internet? No commentary needed...
This is one of my favorite items in my wardrobe. I wear it with everything from over a t-shirt on warmer days to under a sportcoat or a coat/jacket when it is cooler.
Curse you and your money parting links.
Thanks. The one in the picture I posted is advertised as having "an unusual crenelated bezel, not the usual fluted style." Is that the same as a "turned bezel"?
I used to discount the Datejust in comparison to an Explorer or GMT, but the simple dial is growing on me. Any thoughts from owners past and present?
Delivered today...

I roasted 1/2 lb. of Guatemala Acatenango Gesha to a nice City+ this morning. Tasting notes from Sweet Maria's are, "Jasmine, orange blossom, perfumed aromatics, honeyed sweetness. Tropical fruits, red punch and tea flavors. Brilliant acidity." I will brew the first cup Wednesday morning after letting it rest for 3 days.
I love the Lido. I haven't used by Virtuoso since purchasing the Lido. It is my daily grinder for pour over, although I use my Zass for Aeropress only because I use a finer grind and the Lido is tricky to adjust. I've thought about picking up the newest Lido because the grind adjustment is external, but even I can't justify $175 for a third hand grinder that would mean the other 2 gather dust.
