Default Consolation prize for Chazmans' Omega fail.

Money is burning in my pocket, now that the new SMPs 2018 didn't ring my bell, perhaps an affordable alternative.

Very nice... Love that bezel and that compact bronze case. Strap goes well with it. But you can always change that. Now... Will he pull the trigger folks ???

13.5mm case height and the weight, it just didn't cut it as an everyday Dress Diver for me.

I also was under the impression that the 42mm case over the 41mm case would give it the boosted wrist presence the SMPc lacked when I 1st looked at them, it didn't. Straight on glance, it looked hardly any bigger at all, other than being too tall for me.

Absolutely stunning watch though, just not the end-all be-all I thought it would be for me!

Just changed my post. I read about your experience on your other thread. Kinda too bad. But oh well, there is a world of watches out there. I may have fell for that Breitling... You get a price on the Davosa yet ? Gonna pull the trigger on this one sight unseen ? Or do they have AD's here ?

They want just short of $1,100 for it, but Davosa floats out 40% off coupons every so often, I think I will wait is see if one of those comes up soon.

Boy oh boy, that one looks like a really great alternative to tell the truth sir !
Love the detail, along with textures within the case, but also dial. But then
just the combo of the colors, and finishes as well. Even the strap works in
the coolest way. ..The video gives you a nice feel for it too !

You weren't kidding Forza !

Davosa looks like they pulled out all the stops with these beauties
actually. It's nearly impossible to choose a favorite between the
two versions also. ..Just really like how they pay tribute to past
divers, but still are totally new, and refreshing. Thanks so much
for the closer look !!!
