Thanks to everyone for the positive comments. In 10 days this watch has barely been off my wrist during the daytime except to shower and swim (and one day for the Speedie). I think it's time for a change, though this could be a serious "One-Watch" contender!
To answer a few points...

I think it's wonderful and suits you down to the ground
...preferably after a 3-4 hour flight to somewhere warm!

And if you’re inclined to share those unspoilt seaside towns & villages, I’d be interested!
The one in the picture is Olhos d'Agua on the Algarve. It's between the large resorts of Vilamoura and Albufeira, and its pretty quiet. The main road is on a ridge behind the town, as are most of the hotels &c. It's a steep road down to the town beach, with its lovely blue fishing huts and a scattering of relaxed bars and restaurants.

Why are we fascinated by these things?
A lady once asked George Leigh Mallory why he and others wanted to climb Everest. "Because it's there," he replied.

The blue/black indices are intriguing. Are they lumed? Another nice touch if they are.
Sadly they are not. But they do change hue in different light conditions, in the same way that blued hands can sometimes look black.
