    Congrats.

    I just about bought one a little over a month ago, but there were two deal breakers for me:

    -- I didn't want the Ministry (cushion case), as you have pictured. I prefer the standard/regular case. But once I found out it had 18mm lugs, I passed.

    -- Also the lack of quickset date killed if for me.

    But please post pics when it arrives and when you put it on strap/bracelet. It sound like nobody keeps them on the straps/bracelets they come with.

    Congrats! I have two (one ministry and one regular) and love them. They're fun, quirky, and a really great value.

    Lack of a quickset date feature can be a pain - especially since the Scuba Dude isn't a daily wearer for me.

    Since it's my beater that I only wear it on the weekends or on beach vacations and the date is less important to know in those situations, I just don't set it any more.

    TO THE OP: CONGRATS! It's a great, fun watch. Keeps great time and it takes a lickin'.

    I have had one of these(blue face) for some years,yes lack of quick set is a pain,especially as its not worn often.

    Nice watch though.
