Thanks guys. It took some time to decide, but in the end, I chose the Pelagos over the BBB and AT blue. It's very comfortable on the rubber strap, and I like the way the strap uses the end-links to connect to the watch.

My new acquisition; very much liking the shape of the case. Quite hefty, in a good balanced way, on its bracelet, as well.

IMO absolutely the right choice. Isn't that the most satisfying bezel click? One shouldn't be able to get so excited by a bezel click... :oops:

The best part is that the click at '60' requires a slightly more firm push than at any other position, meaning it is less likely to get moved by accident, and that it is possible to reset it to TDC by feel alone. Having read about that, I pointed it out to the AD this morning. We tested it on 2 x Pelagos and 2 x Black Bay and it worked every time. The AD grabbed a Rolex Sub, but no... it's a not a feature of the Rolex.

Congratulations Richard !
The Pelagos is a stunning watch, I fondly remember drooling over one in the window of an AD on holiday recently.

Cheers Footy & Mini. I'll do a thread about it one of these days - and I guess it's time to update the SOTC. :)

I haven't given this one much wrist time lately, so it's an Oris afternoon for me.

Far too much clarity in the dials on this thread! :lol: (although this is much easier to use than it looks!)

i really like this watch - for the amount of info on the dial it's still really clear to read the time - more so than many chronographs, for example, where the hands are crossing various subdials and other bits and pieces. cool! 8)
watching you fail in your quest for a “one watch” has been great entertainment

Great last page of watches.
Loving the Oris and Great white in particular and the that linkage to the rubber strap is very clever on the Tudor. The biggest surprise is how much I like the Gerlach though, looks great value.
