Not a diver, I'll wear tomorrow and take a pic.
Looking forward to your reveal
Yeah, I think looking back I wish I had specified arabic, but letting my wife make the final call is part of the charm of the watch. Aesthetically though, I think the arabic numerals are the way to go.
Yes, sorry if that sounded disparaging: I think of Arabic as being the definitive style of deck watches, but that doesn't detract from the beauty of the Romans: not as maritime, but more reminiscent of smart pocket watches and the like. Either way it's a cracking good watch for the money, and still very much on my list.
This, however, I'll leave beyond even aspiration: it just popped up on my Facebook feed from a friend whose family happen to be the local Rolex AD.
Looks great! Congrats and enjoy it!!!
Thanks for the kinds words, everyone. I made the decision to get two less expensive watches rather than using my entire budget on one watch after being a one watch guy for the past decade, so may have another watch incoming in the Fall as well.
