    I've no idea what happened with the Anko. Usually Crepas/Tactico deliver excellent products
    I've read from forums/Facebook of those issues and seems like they didn't handle the situation as expected from such a prestigious brand

    but back to Borealis, their quality improved drastically over the last few years and you can expect from them a solid well executed watch with a lot of nice touches/details

    they can occasionally have some minor flaws but Customer Service is very reactive in solving any problem
    honestly it's one of those brands I feel very confident about

    But photos can be very misleading so I look forward to seeing it in the metal and provide a very honest unbiased opinion. Based on photos it's very favorable. I am even less bothered by the markers now.
    I think they've done a great job. I'm tempted by the blue or brown. Black looks awesome but I feel I've done black divers enough :)

    I am anxious to see this model, since I have owned a couple Borealis in the past and the quality has been excellent. It's a matter of picking out a model you like, they tend to mix it up a bit which is good (mainly divers though). I still have my Estoril in blue which I intend to keep for now.

    I have ordered the black and white versions as I have accumulated enough blue pieces lately. Not normally a white dial guy but the subdued gray bezel on this model has me interested, and as a lume guy love the C3. I also like that they give you options regarding dial color, date/no date versions. Size and specs. look ideal on this one, we'll see how it turns out.

    In the meantime, I'm sure something else will come along to try, .

    I went with the blue no date cathedral hands after waffling quite a bit between the blue and the brown dial. Still a possibility I grab a brown too. But with so many great watches out there to try it will probably be just one Cascais for me. Also a little concerned about the movement. Definitely cool to have a swiss movement at this price point, this one though is new to me. Possibility better to try one?

    Look forward to seeing everyones.

    Big congrats on that blue ! I'm hoping Ariel sends me that one to share with you all and I send him a different one.


    Went with this combo for work today:

    Wow!! I 'd be all over white one had it use the black outline hands instead of chrome (like Rolex Explorer) for more contrast

    Here's the fully charged Seiko SRP637 versus White Cascais C3 X1 lume


    And next to the fully charged Luxmento Naylamp 200 with C3 lume


    Lume has never been a deal breaker for me but it sure is a great icing on the cake.

    Is it much brighter than BGW9? I cant really tell from the photos, but it sure looks radioactive bright!

    I keep coming back to these. I kind of want a blue but I think I'll be happier in the long run with the black. Gotta have me some C3 X1.

    The more pictures of these I see, the more i waffle back and forth on color. I Wish they offered the black in BGW9 or with C3 X1 on the dial and BGW9 on the bezel. I need to just pull the damn trigger already...
