It arrived yesterday, I was, of course, out of town till today!!
After a fiddly sizing - not exactly simple, but the tool helps+++, it is ON!!:-d
I love it, and it wears just fine, not too heavy a lump, although more than the GMT which is solid enough.b-) One comes off, the other goes on...
Couple of quick and dirtys.

Congrats!

Funny how the dial seems to dwarf that of the GMT (i know it's an illusion due to the inner ring and colouring). :-d

Cheers,
David.

Thanks David.
In real life, the 2 are quite similar in "presence" and the dials are much of a muchness, but I agree with the "illusion" of the smaller GMT dial.
After only a few hours with the 5000T, it is really something.
BTW - any pics of that Spirotechnique?

Dave, nice pics, wear the new watch in good health.

That lume shot makes it appear the 5000T could light up a room!

Question on sizing, do the bracelet links use opposing screws on one pin?

Yes, T Bone, they do, A bit fiddly, but the Bergeron tool helps, once you work out how to use it!! Oh, and don't drop the small end of a bracelet pin, they're real fun to find on the floor.
