    Carbotech, oh yes.....


    A week and counting. Blows all the other crap out there. Not your traditional piece, but so much better for that.

    I am sure LTF could make a darker pic. He has no lights afterall.

    Nice pick up. Probably my fave submersible, that and the PAM 508 ceramic. Lovely!

    Look forward to your incoming shots and if the weight makes 47mm wearable. In pics it really looks awesome!

    Looks awful to me, never been a fan of composite watches though. Sort of Lucky Bag styling.

    Admittedly I’ve never owned a 47mm Pam but I never found any of my 44mm Luminors heavy - much lighter than most watches on a bracelet, at one time I had a planet ocean on a bracelet I wore in rotation with a 111 and it felt like it weighed double the Pam!

    I also have a 111 and have no issues with weight, and indeed bracelets will make things far more unwieldy - hence why titanium would be a better choice.

    But I think a lighter weight works better in 47mm, better balance with size I think.

    Sounds about right. My 42 on a textile strap is 77, wonderful watches. You should be very happy when it arrives

    Me too, but that would be too boring looking to make it into one

    I too like jamboree bags, but that watch would be too boring to be included in one.
    You’re welcome. 😂
