Today I received #37 and the first thing I must say is "wow". Watch is beautiful, well made and a real stunner! Here is a quick review (10 being highest)
Service with Aquadive- 10. Very responsive and communicative. I did have an initial ship date of 1/10 however it actually shipped the 16th...no harm done. Instant Chat is also top notch
Fit and Finish - 10. Watch is wonderfully done. Polished and brushed in all the right places. The edge running the length of the case is polished and ever so slightly noticable
Face - 10. Deep black - Indices have a nice "edge" to them making them "pop" under bright lights. A real eye-catcher
Crown- 9 - Large and easy to operate. Very smooth in all positions. I ranked this lowe ONLY because it is large but that is OK. The more I look at it the more it "just fits"
Bezel - 10. Makes this tick tock as its moved and has a "metal-ee" sound as it moves. Very unusual compared to my other watches which "tick". Very smooth and no resistance and slight play back.
Bracelet 10 - Black Isofrane..nuff said. PS: Black (and I have two) does not smell like vanilla whereas Blue does.
Size - 10. 42 MM but appears larger since it sits higher. I have an Omega 2254.50 SMP and its much flatter but then again its only certifiedl to 300M. This is a hard-core dive watch and as expected would be larger. Size is appropriate for smaller wrists. I cannot imagine how large the 300M is but I can tell you it MUST be a tank.
Packaging - 10. Came with another Isofrane...how COOL is that!! Box is nice and black, contains the rate results and is signed and stamped. Includes CD for operating instructions
Summary - For all those on the fence I recommend them highly. In fact it may not be my last one!! I would easily compare them to Omegas on fit and finish however cannot compare against Omegas movements. Either way this is a beautiful watch that I full intend to extend on my dive trips. I will try and post comparative pictures to my other watches but noticed I'm having challengings doing this......Hope this helps and a many thanks to all the staff at Aquadive for such a wonderful re-introduction to the watch worlds
