I find the Daytona's legibility to be just fine, and I've tried both the white and the black dial options for a year each so far. I also find the chronograph to be useful, and it has a very nice sound and feel to its operation.

The polished centre links are my main gripe about the watch; they mark easily (though I don't notice anything at a normal viewing distance) and aren't really my style (too shiny).

My Omega manual says that you can set the time by turning the crown either forward or backward, but do any members here think that turning the crown backward may be detrimental?

"Time setting: hours – minutes – seconds. Pull the crown out to position 3. The seconds hand will stop. Turn the crown forwards or backwards. Synchronise the seconds by pushing the crown back to position 1 to coincide with a given time signal."

I have done this with all of my watches from all makes. No issue.

Been a bit since I posted in SF, but I picked this up a couple of weeks ago. It's understated (how I like em), the Ti bracelet is brilliant with it's microadjust, and the lume is like a torch. Probably going to throw it on an isofrane.. but gotta lot the wallet cool off a bit.

I hear you on the links. Back in the day I owned a Yachmaster for like a month before deciding that is was more flashy than I wanted. I traded it in.

That said, I'm kind of partial to the two-tone Daytonas, which are even louder. Maybe it's my Long Island upbringing, but I dig them

This might be heresy as the blue has a history, but: I think it's too bright, and the black one is nicer.  There, I said it.

Blue pelagos looks really good in all the pictures. Need to see one in the metal. I can see it looking great on a grey nato.
post #44998 of 48312

thanks all. I was eyeing the new pelagos as well with its in-house movement, but there's a bit too much text on the dial for me

In house movement or not, I can't look past this for a blue Tudor:

 

 

All the fun, with a much more palatable blueness, I think.

Agreed - if the blue was a bit darker, it would be an absolute winner but the mid-blue dial and bezel are a bit too bright and light.

I love the look of that one except for the stem of the crown. I know it's really petty, but I find that the blue on the stem of the crown to be off-putting. If it just had a plain, screw-down crown and stem it would be great but the coloured stem jars a bit.
