    Embarrassing? What an odd characterization. Lume on a bezel can be useful - remember when a watch's utility was a factor in its value? It's not right for every bezel -- not even right for every diver...

    Agree 100%. I didn't mind the Everest on there, but I thought Commander was a nod to Bond without being too on-the-nose. I'll line up for this watch either way but I like the change to Commander.

    This looks classic - I wear the riveted bracelet and don't mind it but do these oyster bracelets ever come up for sale/trade?

    Okay, maybe two prototypes, I'll take one too. Seriously, though - I'd never have thought you could fit the diver real estate in 36mm but looking at the Tudor 75090 sub, it's gorgeous. This may not...

    Nice Render!

    Interesting comparison - seems to me that especially with the simple 3 - 6 - 9 layout the smaller dial doesn't come off as diminutive/crowded (which would have been my main concern). I'm hoping this...

    True, which is why my bank account / marital capital account are glad it's not that size.

    That said, this is gorgeous - great choices for hands, bezel design, colors - and matching the BB58's WR...

    I got in, and just got a dispatch notice (pleasantly earlier than I'd expected - maybe my order was towards the front of the queue?).

    Looking forward to trying out the Baby Willard!

    First off, I think this is really a matter of personal taste, but to my taste, the two-tone doesn't have enough support for the gold in the watch head/dial. If the bezel were gold, or there were more...

    Same here - this is a no-brainer purchase for me, especially with a textured dial. Can I ask why you'd prefer the fixed bars? I'd queue up for this either way (and whatever the movement, frankly -...

    Had the same thought myself - and then immediately figured Rolex marketing would claim having done it first (like they did with summitting Everest)!

    Not a daft Q at all. There is, in fact, a forum for sales - you just need to meet a minimum post threshold to view it (50 posts IIRC).

    No Time to Die (black | silver | gold) NATO?

    Anyone wearing this on the NTTD / "modern" Bond NATO? I thought it would look sharp on the gilt Everest.

    First reference the original Omega version, which seems a bit too muted/vintage-lumey: ...

    ...been eyeing polar-schemed watches for a while and always thought if the polar Explorer II ever came in 38mm I'd just have to sell a kidney - but this would be perfect.

    I've been wanting the Hamilton H76419931 for a while - and figured I'd get it eventually. Hard to say whether this would be my preference without seeing more than renders, but I'd rather have the...
