G'day guys, I will come clean and say right off the bat that I normally hang around a bit on the Rolex forum. Please don't hold it against me! :001_unsure:
I have a couple of their diver watches and will soon be looking to get something a bit different - another iconic piece - The Navitimer.

I have seen various versions of the Navitimer and I'm curious to see what you all think about them.

I love the history of the watch and have decided it will be my first "pilots" watch.

From what I can gather, the one to get is with the 7750 tri compax layout.
They also seem to come with either the hour batons or arabic numerals. Which style is favoured by you all? Is one more traditional than the other?

I normally prefer a bracelet but the Navitimer also looks great on the leather strap. Any opinions on the Navitimer bracelet?

Are there any things I should pay particular attention to on the watch before selecting one? Any common "faults" that I should look out for?

Thanks for the reply Scott!
I still can't make up my mine on which hour marker version to get.
I'm leaning towards the arabic dial but the baton version looks like it would be easier to tell the time.
