I've never been interested in higher end watches but things change.... I finally placed an order. I went with a local AD for assurance and service. Its an Aquaracer Large Date Chrono. I really wanted a quartz and liked the thinner profile. This was a tough watch to find because it is no longer available in the US, in fact, it seems that the selection stateside is quite limited when compared to Europe. What's up with that!?! Now I have to wait 6-8 weeks!
