Re: SBDC051 or 061?

I have the SBDC063, and had the 051. One big difference is that the 061 and 063 have sunburst dials, whereas the others are matte. Both work okay on my smallish wrist, but the 051 will wear larger. You really can't go wrong with either. I only sold the 051 because the matte dial wasn't my thing.

Some nice work there n your review. I agree they should have made it thinner. Do people actually like the extra thickness? :shrug:

They should have at least used the 9015 movement. Maybe they thought the slower beat movement wouldn't give it a more 'vintage' vibe?

Having handled a SS hydroconquest and hated the bezel I’d never buy one so I hope this is better. I wonder if it ...

I thought that the bezel pip falling out was mostly the 2002 contract model, and the 2006 contract was okay. I haven't had any issues with my 2006. :shrug:
