    The AT, a really nice balance of sports and elegance.

    The cyclops on the DJ really spoils the lines for me. Being a bit ageist here so sorry in advance but also can't help thinking that the DJ is (by comparison to the AT) a bit of an old man's watch.

    Purely by appearance, the AT by a hair.. no, wait..!

    Depends whether you like the DJ's understated no-nonsense business looks or AT's slightly more flamboyant modern sporty looks. I'd probably change my mind from day to day.

    The AT pictured is the best version IMO with the trapezoidal framed date window before they inexplicably removed it and finally went to 6 'o'clock.

    It's pretty much a toss up for me. I actually was deciding between these two watches (and a JLC master control) about one year ago. I went with the DJ(but preferred the 36 over 41), black, romans, oyster bracelet, and smooth bezel. Although I don't plan on ever selling the watch, I went with Rolex due to how well they hold their value.

    I'd say AT. I'm a DJ guy, but I feel it loses some of it's classic charm at 41mm.

    If you would have posted this one I'd go for the AT. But in this case I voted for the DJ.

    I went from an Aqua Terra to a Datejust. The AT is noticeably thicker and I felt the teak stripes were getting a bit tiring over time (don't think that element ages too well), while the DJ is slightly less exciting, but much more timeless.

    Based just on looks - the DJ.
