    The bezel doesn't turn either. Thinking more about it, I think what I actually want is the deep-sea chronograph, not the vintage chronograph pictured above.

    I should really wear my rb2 more. I end up wearing the diver much more, almost every day, though.

    I completely agree. If the bezel turned, I think I would be so much more into that watch. It kind of drives me crazy that they did not choose to do that. I really just don't understand that decision, and I am kinda sad about it because I think it is an absolutely gorgeous watch.

    It reminds me of the R8 dashboard, a guy I know had one for about 2 years and than traded it for an Aston Martin.
    I don't see the point of the bezel. Its not marked for diving 10, 20, 30 etc. and it doesn't have GMT markings or a GMT hand...so its seems like its just a styling feature that serves no purpose.

    Replaced gold bracelet with a strap today. Much better IMO.

    Thanks; couldn't be happier with the Grande Reverso GMT! The 8-day case size doesn't work on every wrist and the deployant fits awkwardly on many, but I feel very fortunate that it's the right shape for mine because I absolutely freaking adore this thing.

    Very nice! Is the dial and bezel as blue as they look in the photo or is it more of a faded black?

    Also, is that the green Nato from Timefactors?

    Thanks, Kaplan!

    The colours in the photo look true-to-life on my monitor. The bezel insert has indeed faded to a purplish-blue colour, while the matte dial is a deep charcoal gray or near-black, regardless of lighting conditions. There might be a bit of blue sky reflected in the crystal, though.

    I see that you're no anti-NATe-ite. That olive strap is indeed from Timefactors. The quality seems far better this time than the last batch I ordered, although you really can't complain for the cost. Still, the new ones seem to be impervious to fraying at the holes and ends. The hardware on them is top-notch, too.

    Here's another photo that shows the insert and dial colour...
