    On a less flashy note, the weather is finally cold enough that I moved the anordain back onto some OEM leather straps.

    Love those crisp. clean lines. Very nice.

    I debated for some time whether to chase a birth year DJ but decided I'd always want a new one regardless.

    Awesome watch! Since it's such a recent release, I'm assuming the service was a warranty claim of some sort?
    Thanks. Yes, it was completely covered under warranty. This particular model has had some issues with the date wheel stopping between dates or skipping dates. It's unfortunate, but a few weeks at the service center, and it's good to go again.

    Thanks! I'm terrible at fit pics so I don't post any that would do the jacket justice. It's a safari jacket made from die workwear's summer tweed.

    In person, it's very much a subtle difference compared to regular (painted?) dials. I don't have another watch with a white dial but looking at the enamel, its specular highlights on the surface are a bit softer. The finish of the enamel on mine also isn't 100% glass-like smooth. I never looked at a Breguet enamel dial this close so I can't really say if it's like this across the board.
    Overall though, it's hard (for me) to tell enamel apart from regular old dials from more than 3ft away.
    Thanks. Apparently the cost of enamel dials is so high because so many break in production. It’s intriguing. I’d get the pink or blue one from anordain. Ball also makes an enamel dial but it’s pretty plain.
