Might the new Dato be the very best chronograph in the world? I think there's a reasonable claim to be made...

The dial is a big improvement.  I always found it messy with a mix of Romans, stick markers, and Arabic numerals.  It looks cleaner and more attractive now that that Romans are gone.  Its a great watch with a beautiful movements,  still, to be honest I just don't love this watch.  The only watch they make that I really like is the Lange 1...now thats a beautiful and ground breaking design.

Thank you.  I've looked at ROs for years before finally being ready to pull the trigger.  I'm thrilled with it!

I think it was LRJcustom that was interested in the price of the Daytona.  Good choice by your Boss.  The Daytona is a really nice watch.

Certainly, though this is probably a repost.
