By TLex I would have loved to have had the Benthic Ti for my little surf trip to Indo this year. It's a true waterman's watch and would have been perfect for surfing and checking out the sea life on the reef.
Not to mention the fact that I rarely know what day of the week it is when I'm on my hols. The Bentic Ti 's retrograde day and large date would have seen me right. It will be a very welcome sight when I return home, though. . .
