    The first 20 minutes are often marked differently on a dive watch, but usually on the bezel.

    20 minutes is the no decompression time at 30m on air, but I don't know if that's the actual reason or a coincidence and the reason is something else.

    I believe the Ďbigí sales are usually just after Christmas and one around June time (I think). Few other smaller sales throughout the year though and always a £100 or £50 off voucher available depending on how much you spend. If you are after one itís worth checking the site periodically but my advice would be to never pay full retail.

    To be honest I often think this could be said for a lot of watches. Changing name on the dials would open up completely different perspectives.

    Interested to hear your thoughts on it, especially on the dial and text

    I think they look lovely/different, logo in the right place. If the blue bezel pops up in the sale Iíll buy one like a shot.

    So would I. I canít decide whether I really like it or not. But with 60/60 may be worth a look

    I suspect you are correct but if there is one thing I don't like on my blue one it is the lume colour difference. It even shines less in the dark.

    It was the 60/60 thing that drew me in, never even considered a CW before but loved this as soon as it came out. Iíll maybe do a mini review when it turns up.

    I read often about the misaligned text, is there an example somewhere of this?

    The idea of marking the fixed markers differently does seem a bit counterintuitive - I can't recall if they made a point about this in the blurb in their magazine - I often just throw it away without reading it, but I did read about the Super Compressor because it seemed an interesting watch, but I don't have it any more.

    Perhaps someone else still has a copy and could check?

    I've had a few over the years C1 Grand Malvern PR, C65 blue dial and a 595. This is my favourite so far although the C1 was lovely.
    Seems a few of the sale black and golds have made there way to ebay.

    There you go, the red text is not central to the white.

    You made me think and realised I have a copy so I've just read the whole article and I can't see any mention about the lume markings.
    It's not a killer for me but I do find it a bit odd. Especially as it's not as bright as the other marking where as I would of thought that if anything it would of been better the markings being the other way around if it was indeed to aid the diver.

    I'd say you need to get out more, but we all need to get out more!

    I thought it would be something like that, but it doesn't really make sense to mark the 20 minutes on the dial and not on the bezel. Unless you start every dive exactly at the top of the hour.

    Still a very good looking watch though.
