Matt,

I'm sure at some point you've owned a 16710... How does wearing this one compare? Make you feel the same? I miss my 16710 :crybaby:

Thanks Eric! It's not as glamorous as is may sound but I can't complain! :thumbsup:

For me, this one is better in every way. I much prefer the size, the muted colors of the Pepsi bezel are less in-your-face, the matte dial is definitely my preference, and the awesome lume is absolutely an improvement. It needs an adjustable clasp, but if it had that and maybe a smidge less height, it’d be absolutely perfect.
