I actually prefer the two-tone look, and it's of course a lot less expensive. Pretty sure that I can negotiate an even exchange with a bunch of trade-in's, so that's why it's on the radar. 

 

Echoing all that has been said so far.  Not generally a fan of two tones but this one looks great.  Actually, the two tone Sub that sported the sunburst blue dial always appealed to me.

 

Dammit, does that mean I'm actually a fan of two tones?

Not sure if this is the ideal thread in which to ask...  but I'd be interested in recommendations for a strap alternative for a Seiko SARB065 Cocktail Time watch.  The original strap is a padded black, near patten leather style with blue stitching.  It actually works with the style of the watch well BUT I would wear it more often if I had maybe a burgundy or some other non-black strap that was a little more flexible in terms of dressiness.

 

Here is a photo (not mine) for those that might not be familiar with the watch.  Thank you!

I thought I was going Sub-C next, but I couldn't resist this call of this beast.

The two-tone is awesome! What's the trade you're going to do?

Last night at a wedding. I've been trying to sell my old Tangente, but it's super useful for the handful of times I have to be more formal. Feels just way to dainty to wear on a more regular basis. I wore this watch everyday for 2 years or so and its been ruined for regular use for me by even a simple 40mm watch.

@no frills please don't lump kettle bells in with cross fit. Also feel free to lend that Patek to me instead of your wife next, I'll be much gentler with it.

@dcg: nice lume shots buddy.

@pmeis: I know what you mean. That's a very classic look and size ... but I think if I ever got a Nomos, I'd probably need one of their larger versions. Still lots to love tho!

I heard they are coming out with their on in-house movement on the BB. Shld I wait for it?

Overall, I really like them.  However, if considering a Tudor Sub, I might look for a nice vintage "Snow Flake" model.

I've been really into chronographs lately, and I'm thinking of doing a big trade-in to get a second-hand version of this. Got a bunch of things that I'm not wearing very much these days. 

 

I'm a bit concerned that it's going to be too loud, but who am I kidding - I've worn a Hawaiian shirt for like three days in a row. I like loud things sometimes. 

I'm a big fan of the Daytona.  Although, I'm not really a fan of tutone watches, it works pretty well on the Daytona.  Just be mindful, that unless things have changed, that is technically NOT a dial offered on tutone Daytonas in the US.  If you ever want Rolex to service the watch, they will make you return it to a stock offering that was available for that model.  That dial was reserved for the all gold Daytonas.  In Europe Rolex, is more lenient about dials and other related issues.

The jump from a tutone to an all gold Daytona is rather substantial.  That might not be a jump people are comfortable making.
