I just picked up the 103 St. Not sure what my expectations were since I was a bit underwhelmed at first. Resized the guy, and haven't taken it off since. It wears really well. The Valjoux winding sound takes you back a bit but then it is a part of what the watch is. It is kind of neat how freely you can hear it spin like a toy.
I did notice there was a matte bead blasted version but didn't think it was worth a thought at the time. I'm mixed about the mix of polish and matte surfaces. In hindsight, I keep thinking should have considered the all matte version. Something about the combination of the black anodized black bezel and mixed surfaces not doing anything for me, yet.
Curious what others thought.
