    Stu,Thanks, I don't have a big wrist (about 6.75 in) and sits really well. It's because of the lighting ( and just shined it under a table light for 10 seconds) and at a dinner where I am getting compliments about such a beautiful looking time piece.

    Seems my new watch likes Frankfurt so it has stopped there for a few days holiday on its journey to Australia.

    I love the fedex tracking but it can also be sooo frustrating

    Ok I have it on my wrist.
    First impressions it is light as i took my BS 300 of to put it on lol.
    It is a similar size to my classic dive Seiko but sits much taller.
    I have it on the orange & black NATO this is my first NATO strap and the jury is out on it.
    I adjusted the time on the watch but was unable to adjust the date. I had to cycle through the 24hours to get it from 21 to 27 December is this normal?
    I love the contrast between the bezel and the case and the sides of the case.

    Hi Stu, congratulations on your new Aquadive model 77, yes, the AS movement in your Aquadive is over 40 years old and does not have a fast date adjustement mechanism. So yes, you should turn the hour hand 24 hours in clockwise direction to adjust the date. Please remember, not to turn the hour hand in anti clockwise direction

    Thank you

    The vintage movement would make the watch complete, vintage case, vintage movement, the complete package. The ETA movement although modern is accurate and a work horse. my first choice would be the vintage movement, if I got the ETA movement, I would not in the lease be disappointed.

    Thanks for the reply. Just ordered the AS. I've got plenty of "workhorse" divers but nothing "Vintage"
