I am # 1054/1948!!
I'll get some photos up here soon, but I just had to post in order to keep from bursting!
I have to admit, I was a bit worried. I prefer to wear a watch out of the shop, whenever I've had a watch come by mail, there always seems to be an anticipatory build up, and when the watch arrives, it can sometimes fall short of the memory...
That was not the Case with this!!
This is truly love at second sight, and third sight, and fourth, and fifth...actually it's been one long loving gaze since it has arrived...
I knew that this was a winner when it passed the wife test - She's totally supportive of my collection, but she helps ground me - when I wanted to buy the Sub-c she told me that it looked too much like my GMT-c... and I usually try to add pieces to the collection that are different in some way.
I was worried that the LM might walk a path too similar to the GMTc -- but she took one look and said "oh my God that IS GORGEOUS!!!"
Didn't even compare it to any other watch in my collection (not even the 45.5 PO on rubber)
A few observations :
It wears smaller than 42mm - it actually wears smaller than the 40mm submariner and GMT, But it seems like the perfect size on the wrist. I think that the way the bracelet and case keep the same lines contributes to this.
The AR is UNBELIEVABLE - and really lets you appreciate the shine of the Liquid metal dial - I don't think any picture will capture this, but I'll try.
I couldn't be more pleased with this watch - I've never been so happy to pay full MSRP!
The fact that they can deliver this product at this price blows me away...
Watch this space for more....
