Tooter #2

Post by Datsun240Z71 » September 2nd 2022, 6:28am

Inspired by conjurer's recent pics of his Tudor Royal 38mm , I became intrigued by the larger 41mm day/date version (a poor man's Rolex Day Date, if you will). I do not own a dress watch, so this actually filled a niche.

I decided after several weeks of going back and forth to get the black dial (the silver was Door #2) , and I have to say, it's a very nice piece. The dial has a charcoal sheen, and the raised gold Roman numerals just pop. The bracelet, while very comfortable and simple to size (screws) has no micro-adjustment or half links, which I could probably use. The links are about 1/4 inch long, so it's close. I might have to delete one link, but on initial test-fitting, it seemed a bit too tight. As John noted, the small gold links are capped, and look fantastic. The bezel is real 18kt. gold.

Got it from watchshopping.com about 8 days after purchase for about 26% off MSRP, lower than many on chrono24 and elsewhere new or used! A true bargain IMO at the price paid!

Nice, I like the combination of the black dial and gold indices. Congratulations.
