I recently flipped my AT Opaline dial because it didn't get much wrist time, I had to force my self to wear it just because "I had it". I always thought it was too dressy. But recently I've been contemplating the black AT, it's been on my mind as of late. Don't know if I should pull the trigger, I think the color is more versatile and because I'm always wearing jeans it suits me more than the opaline. I just don't know, don't want to have to flip it again.

The Datejust II with white gold bezel and black dial also sings to me. But it's twice the price, not sure it's worth it over the AT.

Any thoughts?

I think the Datejust II your talking about is more dressy than the Opaline AT. Anything with white gold on it would be IMO. Go for the grey or blue AT maybe.

Here is mine. Originally purchased on brown leather strap. Purchased the bracelet afterwards to achieve the look I always wanted

Negotiations go ok?
Yea about 8% off which isn't bad. She said €640 but took it down to €590 so I was happy with that. It needs to be ordered in but should arrive in about 10 days. Unfortunately I'll have to wait until I have funds available before I can collect it, which will be later in the month. Too many outgoings recently :(

Always the way but it'll be worth it.

Finally I can see this thread on my phone but on my MacBook no joy. Bloody strange!! Anyways... Superb shots as always Chris. Really stunning. Finally someone has managed to capture the beauty of the opaline. I don't doubt that you will get much more artistic in the coming weeks and I for one look forward to seeing the fruits of your hard work.

I'm beginning to wonder if I bought £500 worth of strap and clasp for no good reason!!!
:)
Well, I honestly have to say, I think it's worth it if you want the Brown OEM and clasp. I love the contrast with the opaline dial, it really looks top notch. IMO it's the best dial to go with a strap, especially the brown one, as it really brings out the dial so it would be a shame to deny it the right to pop like it will on the strap :D

I researched what watch to I wanted for about 2 years and in the end I just couldn't find one I liked more than this AT with the brown strap. I didn't even think I'd buy the bracelet at all but the more I looked pics like yours, the more I realized both were a must.

In short your doing the right thing buddy :)
