    The Cascais looks great in the video. Especially like that they featured the black No-Date Pencil Hands, as that's what I'm down for ! It has a very classy look about it.

    Aesthetically, it really resembles the much desired Oris 53 42mm, especially with the pencil hands, and specs wise the Cascais is actually better with the STP 1-11 aboard IMHO ..... at comparatively a really great price point.

    The Blue and Brown are pretty good looking too, but hard to really tell the exact shade of those colours from the vid and pics of these.

    I think Borealis definitely have another winner in the bag here !!!

    Roll on February !!!

    Here's a few more shots of the black C3 X1 cathedral I was able to get out while baby watches Sesame Street.










    And I was asked for side by side of brown and white together.

    Do you think Cascais is better than the Anko (despite its misalignments and issues)?

    That's a tough question to answer. I mean, I got the "wrong" Anko. I wish mine was the black dial but it's grey and I've worn it twice or 3 times since getting it. Lume doesn't equal bad or good quality but the lume on the Anko sucks, I mean, really sucks. And it would've been cool if the Cascais came with a vintage gold accents and markers version.

    I honestly can't wait to sell the Anko but I'll lose a lot of money on it but I do prefer the case of the Anko. I'm a sucker for 4 o clock crown and Seikos. At one point I had 12 watches with 4 o' clock crowns. And the Anko is super cool to me on the case sides. I wonder what I'll think of the black dial, if I ever get one

    I hope Borealis makes a Seafarer with 4 o clock crown but I'm just day dreaming.

    So which one is better visually? Easily the Cascais. Quality wise ? About same. The Anko is heavier though.

    Better movement ? Well I'm not into movements honestly but given the choice, I would take Swiss with bigger beats than Seiko but I love all my Seikos and Seiko powered pieces.

    Some have asked me lug comfort and about bezel action and it really has no play at all. Not even a little bit. Since I haven't shown the brown that much, check it out.



    While I love the 42mm by 49mm on my elephant 8.3in wrist, I definitely think it's more designed for the the 6in to 7.5in wrists.

    Too much caffeine so I did some shoes swap and mandatory lume comparo.




    And earlier, 17 minute gap

    Actually, the more I see of the Cascais, the more I am really attracted to the case shape.

    The proportions of dial face and bezel are really great ! The bezel on most watches these days always seem to be too wide, even on homages !

    Maria seems to have got this pretty much spot on with this one ....

    The Blue and Brown are beginning to grow on me ...... especially after seeing some shots of that Blue on the Borealis FB site.

    The White however, just doesn't do anything for me !!! Honestly, to me it looks very feminine, sort of the ladies version of the Cascais !!!

    But, I guess that is just me, though !!! Maybe if the bezel was black or blue, or ......... !

    phlabrooy,

    Brice (jeep99dad) will be getting the brown dial by Monday, max Tuesday and keeping it for the Holidays to share with us.

    They absolutely nailed the chocolate and only 30 are being produced, for now now at least.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing Brice's awesome wristshots, the strap swaps and his overall opinion on the watch. Should be very interesting and better looking than my pics.


    Luis
