I opened the box and was immediately impressed with the watch. Super high quality finish. I think the Trekker 39 is absolutely perfect for me. The black dial actually looks deep blue due to the AR coating. It is such a treat to see this watch in person. The watch way exceeds my expectations for a $750 watch. I currently have 12 Rolex watches of which two are relatively new and 10 are vintage, mostly from the 50s. I have a moon watch, a Fortis Cosmonaut, two 50s Omega Sea Masters, a couple Benrus, and many other watches. This Trekker has the most pleasing aesthetic out of all of my watches. Steve did an outstanding job. I am very impressed. I can't wait to see what he does in the future.
