Well I couldn't pass this one up and I don't have any with roman numerals. It is still wrapped and unsized. I will have to take care of that later tonight!

Thanks. That was one thing I liked about it too and the latch portion blends with the braclet almost seamless except for the logo.

Ifyour camerahas a macro mode use it for your close up shots but make sure your photo looks clear throught the LCD screen on back. If you get to close, the subject will get blurry. On another Thread Toe mentioned aninexpensive tripod and using the camera's timer to take your watch photos. If you have the camera's owner manual that is always the best place to learn about what your camera can do and it's features. Also, just keep taking photos and the more you use your camera the easier it should be to get better photos. I hope this helps a little. Please feel free to keep asking questions. By the way. Congrats on your gorgeous new timepiece. Enjoy and wear it in good health. ....Bob

Thanks Bob.

I will try the macro setting. I have a Sony 7.2 cyber-shot. Not a great camera but it was good enough for internet pictures. Maybe I am expecting more out of it...lol

Hi Mustang Dreamer, Sony makes an awesome camera. Most Sony cameras can crop photos inside the camera. Check and see if yours has that feature. If you get a sharp photo, the in camera crop is a great feature, hopefully your camera has it.....Bob

AWESOME MEETING YOU ALSO!!!

I went and tried it on also and to be 100% honest, even though it is a big 51mm and cool - I also tried on the Oris that I have wanted forever - the one shown below - and I liked it better. Just more detail and "style" to me then the big one. Sure the big one was cool, but $1200 MORE cool?? I did not think so.

I like this one the best to date - It was even BETTER in person then in pictures.

Thanks... I will get the real specs for it but just off the top of my head the case was 41-42mm?(I think) and Swiss quartz movement.

For better pics:

Use the Macro setting.

No flash, use a halogen desk lamp.

Get a cheap tri-pod.

Set your shot up and use the timer (if you have one) to get a nice clear picture.

You don't need an expensive rig to get decent shots.

I use a cheap ($100) Pentax.

I mean they're not "professional" quality, but good enough.
