I went ahead with the white/black. I hope I don't regret it. I kind of have a weird feeling about buying one of these now. I wrote them a nice message in reply, but got no response just the shipment notification in Amazon. I guess they are not a "high touch" operation ;)
I have traditionally been a big Edox fan and mostly stick to collecting that brand, but decided to get a nice tritium watch this year for Christmas. I was going to pick up a Ball Magnate chrono, but decided to give Deep Blue a shot because I am an entrepreneur myself and I like to support the little guys. But I kind of got the feeling they didn't care if they sold me a watch or not. I dunno, I hope I am impressed when I get this thing in the mail. Right now I'm feeling a little underwhelmed about dropping $1200 on one of these.
I really liked the ceramic bezel on my Edox Class 1 that I had, and I regret ever flipping it. I'm hoping the white ceramic on the Recon is equally nice and that the case and bracelet is nicely detailed. Fingers crossed that everything I have read is true about these guys. The DayNight Recon T-100 is swiss made and at a similar price point to Edox and a number of Ball watches on Amazon, so I'm hoping its at least Edox level of finishing but with lots of tubes! Right now I'm wearing a Grand Ocean that I picked up last year for a bit less than the DB, it has a very nicely polished deployant clasp and the case finishing is like jewelry and very nice...so that's kind of where my expectations are at.
I had picked up a reversible textured/smooth dark blue italian rubber strap that I thought would look nice with the orange, hoping it will look good with the black hand version.
