    But the more you guys keep showing pictures of those the more I keep thinking I should buy one. Unfortunately I don't do pre-orders of more than 30 days. I guess I'll be looking for a blue with Cathedral hands in the fall of 2017.

    If you don't mind used I'm sure you'll have no issues finding one then. But I feel pretty good about Borealis Track record and prior products in general. The project is well advanced now so you aren't too far out.

    It oozes qualify and is very well finished...it's obviously somewhat subjective, it's not like I have a QualityMeter on my desk to stick my watches on :) I just think it's an incredible watch and value.

    I was going to get H2O Marlin. But then suddenly the all the talks about Cascais and Seaforth bombarded this forum. Eventually I gave in and chose Cascais instead as I had a feeling thats its gonna be great and best bang for the bucks.
    I was gonna save and get Marlin later but seems like its limited production, oh well.

    I just got my Bull Shark last week and my Rolex a few months ago. All this buzz and pictures is making me want a Cascais.

    That makes my day. It's easy to recommend what I love. I seriously thought I was done with white dials until this one.

    Have you seen Pallet Spoon's review of it ?

    Just got the black cathedral C3 X1 back from a Facebook tour to slapped this green leather immediately

    and felt the need to check out the lume again.


    Later tonight, when my wife and baby go to sleep, I'm gonna take pics to compare lume to my A1 and PADI Turtle.

    Interested to see how the lume holds up to the A1 and the Seiko. Thats a stiff test.

    To be "fair", I used the UV Flashlight last on the PADI and A1. Fair because C3 X1 is strongest lume available so it would be wrong if the UV flashlight last hits the Cascais.

    PADI versus Cascais
    (Sorry forgot to sync the hour)




    A1 45mm (sapphire bezel) versus Cascais




    No filters, no editing, nothing enhanced.
