    I almost bought one from an AD in Aruba, but they only had the bracelet. It looks good, but I think it looks better with a strap. The price isn't that bad either, especially compared to the 1887s.

    I've been having a closer look at these and I think I've figured out what it's missing; it's the small markers at 3 and 9.
    Aside from that, it's a darn good reference to the old Val.92 Carrera in a modern size case.
    Dark sub-dials on a light base remains my favourite combo.

    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
