Hey Houston I have the non-chronograph with the 42mm (which im sure Mike does as well) and this one is just perfect. I tried on the 45mm and it was just way too big for me.. the lugs were hanging over my wrist.
@Mike, I actually wanted to get the one a la the orange numerals like you have, but Tourneau Jewelers didn't have this one in stock and so I just went with the one with the white numerals. Maybe we can swap... you send first! haha I don't have any regrets at all with this one, the white numerals give an overall sense of class and timelessness, but as Houston has said, I'm sure the orange gives off a certain sort of buzz.
At first I wasn't sure about the double AR coating, but it seems to be more durable than it seems. I also like how it gives off a kind of purple hue. It gives a sense of wonder and awe, I think, to any bystanders and provides an extremely high degree of readability to the wearer. Overall I think this is much more watch than it's direct competitor (we all know what it is) and is an overall greater value and better watch all around. It seems to me like if both watches were placed side to side and someone had to choose, taking the price into effect, the ONLY way someone would chose the other would be for the name on the dial and that's it, IMHO.
