So nice reading how happy you are with your new AT Steve. The perfect Christmas present! It's a beauty for sure
I've owned this amazing watch now for 4 days and all I can say is WOW! It's incredible, and by far the most comfortable watch I've owned. The rubber strap is perfection on my 6.75" wrist and because of the short 47mm lug to lug length it wears much smaller than the 41mm size would suggest. I mentioned this in another thread, but I have a hard time believing it is 13.2mm tall. It does not look or feel that tall on the wrist due to the curved lugs. The case is so beautifully done. I knew it would be a great watch having owned an SMP 2254.50 for almost 2 years now, but the AT has far exceeded my expectations, even after seeing it repeatedly in person at ADs. I absolutely adore the face. The lower outer minute track, then raised plank inner face and applied indices give you so much detail to look at and admire. Beautiful! The stepped down date window with matching color of the wheel is in a perfect spot to provide nice symmetry to the dial. So glad I went with the new version and horizontal pattern.
Time keeping so far is about +1.5 a day. It gains some time overnight and then loses a bit back when worn all day. The only minor qualm I have is that the crown could be a little easier to use, especially winding. It is fairly difficult to grip and could probably stand to pop out another millimeter to help with that. The other problem I have is I like it so much I want a black one too! :think: I love, love, love this watch and I plan for it to be with me a lifetime. So happy I (and my wife) could make this happen.
