Been looking for the "One Watch" similar to the Rolex Explorer I 39mm. Do it all, dress water sports, robust, yet not so sporty it couldn't be worn with a suit and tie.
Ruled out the Rolex Explorer, no day window, which is a must for this 67 years old man. Like the Omega Aqua Terra Sky Fall, that is until I tried both sizes on 38.5mm and the 41.5mm and found neither fit comfortably.
Now I have sort of zeroed in on this watch, which to be honest with you, never really caught my eye. It has sort of grown on me, a well built watch that is a tool, yet still can be worn formally.
I'm in a quandary now between the 556 I with the plain dial sans Arabic numbering, and the 556 A with the Arabic numbering. The I model looks clean, and I like the traditional placement of the date window, and the "Automatik" labeled on the lower end of the watch. What doesn't look right is how bland the dial looks without the numbering.
On the other hand the 556A looks real nice, but I don't care for the placement of the date window at 4 O'clock position, and all the empty real estate on the bottom of the dial. If they would have placed the date window in the same place as the I model and done way with the Arabic #3 and kept the "Automatik" on the dial, they would have a winner.
What's your guys preference
