    Re: Borealis Cascais Swiss STP1-11 Preorder has started

    I have to agree with ValueWatchguy on the bracelet. It's a quality bracelet for sure but too substantial for the watch and the clasp too big and heavy itself. Needs more taper. He also noted the same issue with the protruding middle section of the end link. It detracts from the WATCH's aesthetic. I feel the bracelet is also too substantial and heavy, the clasp too imposing on the Bull Shark. It seems there is a trend to bulky bracelets maybe? Doesn't keep me from loving the watch though :) plus they wear great on straps.

    I've had no issues with the crown or winding on either prototypes, no issues in my two Zodiacs who use the same mvt. But they've a different feel than a 2824.
    I have to agree the bezel grip is great and it's easy to turn. And everything is well aligned.

    Pretty cool to see different perspectives and opinions on the same exact watch.

    I'm posting this review within the thread partly because there are already 3 other Borealis related threads on the first page of the F74 forum. Also I have comments that might be construed as more more negative that I intend on the open forum. That isn't my intention and I hope this audience is better take the pros and cons I present in the appropriate light.

    Good review valuewatchguy, nice to see something balanced and hear someone's negative observations as well as the positives .

    I think he meant to write that in a different thread. It doesn't go with anything on this one, huh?

    No, the one who responded was prescient enough to realize to whom it was directed. Calling someone lazy and inconsiderate because they don't follow the same posting practices is lame.

    Love it - had to change my order from pencil hands with date to the cathedral hands no date. I also have a white cathedral hands no date on order and did the blue with different hands and date to be a little different, but I just love how great those pics look of the blue/cathedral/no date. Thanks Brice and Luis and all who have taken the time to take pics and do a review of the Cascais - it is extremely helpful!!
