    Re: AQUARACER 500M CLUB

    I've owned both the ceramic and the previous version 500m. Crown issues aside, I prefer the older version. I think they're both fantastic looking watches, but I feel the previous version just has more depth to it. I prefer the vertical planks and more pronounced applied logo on the dial. Here's mine:

    Great watches. How bad is the time keeping on yours?

    Maybe I got lucky, but my movement is quite impressive. It was +1 after 9 days straight. Then I must've done something and after the next two days it was +11. Reset time, and after 5 days it's -2.

    I've heard other reports of consistently +6 a day and then also, more similar to my variations. I'm starting to wonder if the inconsistencies are due to the eta vs the sellita movements? Apparently, they are placed in at random, not 100% on this though. I don't really wanna open my caseback just to check that either.

    Anyone else have any thoughts or their own watch deviations to add?

    Oh, and pic:

    I have a question concerning the 500m Ceramic model: Is the dial dull or do the groves catch the light in natural daylight? Thanks a lot!

    I would say the dial has more of a matte style finish. It does not reflect light back. I took some photos that may help what I'm describing.

    Thanks a lot! However, due the ridges there is some kind of reflection and I think it looks more interesting in the light than just a plain matte dial. I have a hard time deciding between this and an Oris Aquis.

    It does give some added flavor to the dial. I like it.

    That's a tough one. Do your research and definitely have a look at each one in person.

    I was on the fence for awhile with a few different watches, but when I saw the tag in person, I was sold.

    Good luck

    The Aquaracer Ceramic in black is absolutely gorgeous but the blue is not a great colour, Tag seem to agree as the Aquaracer chrono ceramic is a totally different blue and much nicer on the eyes.

    the dial does not catch the light anywhere near as well as the Aqua Terra does, but it makes it more interesting, I would not want to have it all matte black.

    The timekeeping is not great on mine either, but it is around +6 now after settling down a bit. I'm not 100% happy with this but should be expected from a watch with a cheap movement.

    Maybe it even has to go after forking out more money for other watches last week... I like the way it looks and wears but it somehow doesn't excite me as I hoped it would over time. The only issue is that I'll bite the dirt because I bought brand new about 5 weeks ago and the resale is horrible.

    Will probably post a comparison between the ceramic Aqua and the PO soon to suss out why..

    One watch, many opinions.

    so anyone notice that the ceramic 500m do not have the anti-reflective coating on the sapphire? Is that true.
    the rubber 500m have the A coating.
    Do not understand why.
