    Thanks for posting. These look great and are very tempting.

    Am I seeing things or is the dial grey on the white dial with pencil hands and white on the white dial with cathedral?

    Also..

    I DO NOT NEED TO BUY ANOTHER WATCH!!!!! Especially not another diver

    First pics of the Cascais prototype coming to life, as taken from the Borealis Forum ....







    I have too many watches ...... but with the STP1-11 aboard, and the latest X1 Grade C3, might just need to give this baby a try !!!

    Looks really good. I'm still on the fence about this one. Anyone know if the factory is they are using the same factory for cascais as the estoril?

    ^^ I would say it is likely. and from the proto pics looks like there is a small lip around the crystal that might be in contact with the bezel

    It's a totally different bezel system, if that's the question. The Estoril bezel mimicked the construction of the Omega it's inspired by, but 1mm thicker. Not the Cascais. Plus it's ceramic, while the Estoril is sapphire.

    The Cascais bezel is replaceable.

    This is one on my radar and will be preordered...... But I gotta build up my watch funds after this last month. Too many releases and preorders all in such a close span. With its release looking like February I'm thinking this will be a good new year preorder.

    And how will that be a cause for concern here ?

    If you are worried about that causing any de-lamination of the bezel insert, rest assured that will not happen .....

    The Cascais, as mentioned above, will come with a Ceramic insert, not a laminated sapphire one !!!

    How does the quality of these Borealis watches compare to, for example, the quality of Steinhart's of similar price?
