    I've loved this watch since I first saw it in 1984 on Magnum P.I., season 4. But I adored it from afar, fearing a 40mm watch would be too small on my 7 3/4" wrist. Instead I bought a Rolex DSSD. I had been wearing Omega Seamasters exclusively for more than a decade, 43.5mm up to 45.5mm. I liked the wrist presence, the style, and the prices.

    As often happens, my tastes changed and I was no longer looking for a watch that entered a room before I dd. I wanted style, but also a little bit of subtlety. Never bonded with the DSSD, having bought it for it's insane specs. But the geometry was all wrong - too tall a watch and overly bulky, at a time when I was looking for elegance. A little over a year ago I traded the DSSD straight up for the GMT Master II, sent it to Rolex for service that included new hands and dial, and here I am. Two watch rotation; the GMT and a Speedmaster. :)

    New arrival.

    I worked harder to get this one on my wrist than any watch previously, but now it’s all worth it:
