    Thanks, noregrets. And thanks for the easy transaction. By the way, if you miss the watch...I strongly doubt it will ever be for sale by me!

    That the DK 105 is "a modern interpretation of the Rolex of old" is not quite what I meant, although I can see strains of the 4 digit Explorer, for instance. Hard to get far away from the classics. Good design builds on tradition, and in a way it is impossible to avoid certain clichés without going off the deep end.

    I wore an early '80s 5513 Sub for many years and had to sell - another story. But even that watch was a few steps away from what I thought were the most lovely of the Sub line; it was very handsome but had some dainty touches leaning toward jewelry and the changes wrought since then have made the Subs unwearable for me. There is simply too much of whatever extra - over and above an excellent and sturdy watch - that Rolex is selling. I am sure Rolex is making good watches, but they are for someone else, not me, even were I willing to shell out the green.

    Damasko builds watches as an expression of engineering excellence, and their designs are "good" inasmuch as they suit the purpose for which they are made. The 105 is in line with this thinking, adding to it enough spit and polish to be suitable for a dressy occasion without losing any of the masculine energy of the rest of the line.

    I am not overly persuaded by the James Bond phenomenon, and I don't fit the prototype. But all other things being equal and if Fleming were writing today, Bond would not likely be wearing Rolex or Omega. Screw the cachet! The 105 would be on the A list for virility, durability, and elan. In a pinch, you could really hurt a villain with the mere metal of a Damasko!

    Descriptions really are more fun with a pic!

    Have to add that noregrets sent me a Hirsch strap after the deal was all done, gratis. What a great guy to buy from!

    In any case, I think it's beautiful on the blue DK. It's not particularly creative to be taking pictures of your wrist in a car, but when else is the watch sitting in front of my face? Here it is: 5º F outside today.
