    Nice Mark XVI, I want one in a bracelet myself.

    On another note, I finally got my Monaco after years of drooling over it. Very happy.

    Nice. Why did you opt for the single sub-dial as opposed to the chrono?

    My wrist is too small. I originally wanted the blue chrono but the extra 1.5mm plus the chrono pushers makes it out of my size range. Even this one is pushing it in size for my wrist.

    Plus overall, I think this one is more versatile. It also gives me a reason to buy an Omega Blue Bond in the future since I can't see myself owning more than one blue dialed watch at a time.

    Thanks. I opted for the strap, and swapped the black gator for the brown buffalo because I really wanted the vintage military watch look, but the bracelet offered on that watch is one of the nicest I've ever seen.

    Also, if you like slightly smaller (40mm and below) pieces, consider the Speedmaster Date Automatic w/blue dial instead of the Bond watch. Slightly smaller, slightly rarer and doesn't have the helium valve which I'm really not a fan of.
