The care and attention to detail in how the watch is prepared for shipping I think really sets the stage to define who built your watch. No less than 7 pieces of protective "film" cover the entire watch. (I left the one on the clasp as I don't plan to keep the bracelet on for long) Nothing is exposed to a possible scratch. Then its wrapped in the bubble wrap.

    I've now sized it and was totally impressed w/the quality of the bracelet. I do think whomever said to put a little wax in the slide adjustment is spot on as its a little sticky...but heck that's for fine adjustment and not everyday use. Anyway, I'm looking forward to wearing it and seeing how it runs. I bought this as a beater, which seems to be a harsh word for such a lovely piece....but it will be my daily for a while and I'm going to circle back w/some thoughts and observations as I get to know the piece...for now, I'm just very impressed w/the quality and craftsmanship I see at first blush...its a lot of watch for the $$.

    I can say already how I can see the use for the dual AR on the OR in low light or office light conditions. It much easier to see my SKX007 non-AR Hardlex than the OR crystal. I think the Seiko and my Squale 1521 had best crystal for no glare (I know the Seiko isn't a crystal). I'm wondering if its because the 007 has a flat crystal.....My Blancpain had dual AR...never any glare issues. I'm outside most of tomorrow, so I'll to see how OR works in full daylight.

    Just got this in today





    You can see how different lighting will make the sand lume show up differently in pictures. Lovely.

    Here's a good shot to show how well this watch fits under shirt & jacket. Its not a thin watch @ 14mm in height...but wears like a 10-11mm. Its a very comfortable piece to wear and I adjusted the bracelet probably 3 times today based on where I was (valley hot/beach cool)...so the ratcheting clasp is very useful....much more than I initially thought...in fact, I'm thinking of putting this on leather strap and I may get another clasp to do that. I will say I had it outside all day today and I got a lot of reflection off the crystal...and the other thing that's a bit annoying is the mice type at the bottom constantly looks like a smudge to me...and that's with my glasses on...its blurry...otherwise, its keeping spot on time and looking very smart.

    @cwfmon - great to see your Ginault with 2xAR is back and looking fantastic. I would love to see a profile shot that shows how the shoulders of the dome look now.

    Here is my Ocean Rover with the flat sapphire and 2xAR coating:

    And one one I posted before showing a comparison of the 2xAR with the original ocean rover dome sapphire fitted to an explorer type case:

    I absolutely love this mod, it does the superb Ginault dial justice.
