Thanks! While you do see a *lot* of Day Dates around here, DDIIs are somewhat few and far between, and I've actually never seen a rose gold one in the wild.
Thanks, guys! I'm very excited especially after such a long wait.
I generally like all the dial offerings for the RG DDII. However, after a couple years of window shopping, I had been set on chocolate with the rose gold for a very long time (both Daytona and DDII). The ivory is also very nice on both, but to my eye the chocolate/rose combo is just on a whole different level.
Rose with a brown dial is a great combination. I've seen Cartiers, IWCs, Breguets, and Rolexs in RG with brown dials and all looked killer! Although for some reason, when it comes to Rolex, I really like the brown with a DD or a DJ...but not as much on a Daytona (I find the darkened numerals and the subdials don't have enough contrast with the dial and they all just look muddled). Anyway, not an issue since you went with a DDII. Enjoy it!
A gift from my parents after finishing my M.Sc.. I remember looking at this exact watch for hours when I was a kid, being intrigued by the smooth movement of the seconds hand. My father got it for his M.Sc., and I hope I can continue the tradition.

Very nice. Congrats on your degree and on the watch! Keep the tradition going!
