Richard is correct. Centre seconds is better- if it fits.

I do appreciate that the CW/nCW threads are full of folk wearing oversized watches, but I will try something appropriate.

Far better dial. Far worse bracelet.

Agreed

I had a former boss who had a birth year RO when he was born! I offered to buy if a few times - he declined!
