    That's a stunning pic, Jeff! :rocker:

    It's also nice to have minute markers all the way around the dial, isn't it? Makes telling the exact time so much easier! :thumbsup:

    It's not blue (I wish it was). It's polished, so the reflection may have given it a blue appearance. :cheers:

    Yeah, I bet you're gazing at that beautiful dial all the time and wouldn't have a clue as to what the time is if someone asked! :lol:

    Looks amazing Jeff, huge congrats. Guess what, I have a feeling that I will experience my first Radiomir sometime in the near future. A friend of mine has a 232, and I tried it on and fell in love. I am thinking a 210 or a 183 would make me happy, the search is on.

    Sweet! :rocker: I had never considered a Rad before this watch. I'm really digging it thus far! I hope you end up with one. :cheers:

    I'm with ya Jeff, I was always a Luminor kinda guy in the past. I am blown away at how much I loved the 233, and @ 47mm it felt amazing and did not feel to big, it actually looked perfect. I am really leaning towards a 210, 45mm will be amazing I think.

    Looking at pics of the Rads, they just looked ok to me, but once they are on the wrist, they are a pure joy, enjoy yours.

    Yeah the 221 is gone, then a 299. I'm not new to this disease. I've been struggling with it for a while now. :lol: :lol:
