A big 'Thank you so very much' for all your information and opinions. Each and every one of you has been so helpful over this. I have researched like mad both the Titanium and Alligator but you can't beat the experience of other owners (hard to find when there are only 1,000). It was so good to hear so many positive comments about the weight and 'feel' of the watch from members who had one. Thanks guys. I'm glad it is heavy as I don't have any other really 'heavyweight' watch. It is one of only 1000 as well which is pretty special. Interestingly I thought the same about the day / date configuration which I too think is better on the Alligator.
I like them big and heavy (Ive got a Big Bang and Corum Bubble Skeleton too!) I like the Ball build, detail and whole brand. I have ORDERED the 'GATOR!! It was $2,799 but I will have to pay VAT and import duty on that . I will post photos when I receive it!
Thanks again everyone from a Brit who has fallen in love with his.... no I can't say it!!!
