Because I have read it several times and the comments are a factor in my decision to pick up the black dial version of the 16519. In my opinion, the 16519 looks very very good with the black strap.
Truth be told, I am not much of a bracelet guy, so the Daytona, and most of the rest of the Rolex tool watches, have never really made it into the top tier of desirability for me. I have always liked them on straps, Natos, and Rubber B's, but since they are not initially shipped that way, something always felt "off", even though I have owned a few. When I realized that this watch was designed with the strap in mind, and initially shipped by Rolex this way, I got very interested. True that Rolex has started creating watches with the rubber strap, and I love how these look as well, but since I own an AP Royal Oak Offshore with a rubber strap, I couldn't justify getting another (for me) expensive piece with a rubber strap. The "vintage" feel of the 16519 with the Zenith movement is icing on the cake!
It is for these reasons that the 16519 ticks all the boxes for me. It is arriving this week, and I will follow up with a fresh post and photos!
