they are offering a pretty good part exchange for my milgauss (subject to viewing it) and i am due to pick up on Monday, so before the 7% price increase too. It does look amazing.

Keeping the milgauss not an option?

Not really. I don’t have the finances for that really.

I assume it wears slightly smaller than the Milgauss, being slimmer in both case depth and diameter than the MIlgauss?

it is def slimmer, but it is a 41mm compared to the milgauss that is a 40mm. The milgauss is chunky heavy watch which is great, but the blue and white gold bezel are quite a combination.

Although the DJ41 is apparently only 39.52mm..... :)

No idea why they decided on calling it a DJ41!

Either way it’s certainly a lovely watch.

Personally I prefer the milguass. I think these are just a bit too big for this classic style of watch. Nice watch no doubt though and if you like it then go for it. If your not sure then I am sure this will be much easier to get further down the line than any sports model.
Cheers now

I'm another who prefers the Milgauss, that is a model that potentially could be discontinued soon. As Paul says, the DJ is likely to be relatively easier to get hold of down the line.

All that said, you maybe fancy a change and it is what you prefer that matters.

I’ve had the milgauss up on eBay a couple of times but no one is offering sensible money for it.

With the dj41 going up in price in a couple of days time I should not be too out of pocket when the submariner comes in as well

The the DJ came in and it looks amazing. Trouble is I may have to off load one or possibly both of the following:

Oris 65 divers with a hint of bronze
Sh21 c65 divers bronze

I love both, but probably need one to go so they will be listed shortly on the for sale listings
