If I were you, I'd buy the new Colt 44 quartz. Less maintenance and more accuracy, but that's just me. I'm selling most of my autos because I'm afraid will have to eventually service each and every one of them, so I'll keep one or two for the time being. I tried the Colt 44 with black dial today, and it's gorgeous. My question is, can you fit another bracelet instead of the Professional one? I like the older end links since the flat end link looks like if you purchased an aftermarket bracelet.
