    Can anyone confirm the L2L on the new Skindiver? Looks a lot longer than I thought, based on Samanator's photos...

    I believe it went from 50mm to 52mm.

    Handled one of these at my local Tourneau last week. Nice to see that they addressed that hot mess of lines on the first gen dial and ditched the day display. Love the bracelet. Very high quality and silky feeling. Ball would do themselves, and future customers, a huge favor if they immediately replace their absurd engineer hydrocarbon clasp with this one and give people the adjustment capability.
    The case back brought back bad memories of the sharp machining edges of the one my departed XV had. Except this one was worse due to the depth of the cut. Does anyone at Ball ever WEAR their prototypes before release? Seriously - how does this keep getting ignored? They could have easily specd a radius on that cut before they placed the final order for the case backs. Now it will never change because they are probably stuck with thousands of them.

    I absolutely love this watch! It is certainly amongst my favorites in the collection. It is amongst my most comfortable as well. Luckily, I haven't experienced any discomfort from the caseback engraving. Perhaps because my (7") wrist shape is flat?

    Thanks! Yea, I can't help but to get giddy every time I look down at it, and I wear it every chance I get when I know I'm going to be out at night.

    Great watch. Been saving for a while for a couple watches and this was one of them. Picked mine up early last week. Love it.
