One of my ADs offered me the very first 5990/1A that hit his store - it's a thick watch, lots of wrist presence. It's thicker than what used to be the thickest Nautilus (the 5980/1A chrono). I'm no hater of thick watches (hell, I have two DSSDs), but I passed on this one.
I am on a "sabbatical" from acquisitions (albeit with many, many exceptions - if I need to replace clothes that have worn down, that doesn't count; orders placed from last year but only arriving now don't count; acquisitions financed by trading in other pieces don't count... HAHAHA)... But part of my brain is actually figuring out the trade-in math for which pieces I might give up to get a ref 116618LB - the blue cerachrom bezel, sunburst blue dial all YG Sub. Pre-owned, probably obtainable with no cash out by trading in one of my DSSDs, my SubC 114060, and maybe one more less expensive piece. In terms of steel Rolex divers, that would still leave me with the DBlue DSSD, the SD4000, and (though I shouldn't count it), my wife's ref 116610LV.
But - why do this kind of math and torture myself! Enough! Hahahahahaha.
As usual, it looks better in person. But, given the price point you can't have any single qualm about how this watch is rendered IMHO.
