A black dial blue bezel would have been a good fit as well๐Ÿ‘ ...

Very cool. But I had my watch for years, saw this watch winder advertised when we were traveling abroad, and figured it was fate. They are sold only in France, but they have a bilingual website and they ship internationally.

I actually traded my platinum Daytona for this, and cash, because I'm in my 70's and was having trouble reading the dial of the busy Daytona. People thought I was crazy.

Smart move! ๐Ÿ‘

You now have a 60-minute counter on the bezel as well as great legibility. [Btw, if my memory serves me right, I believe I remember your Pt Daytona posts on another forum ... you got that one circa 2014-2015 โ€” right?]
