    Ugh I just requested my black to be changed to white, cathedral, dated... same as JeepDaddy. I've been wanting a classic, all-around black diver for awhile, but this one might not be that diver - mainly because of thin bezels and the bracelet, which I don't think will be viable for my thin wrists.

    This picture made it hard to make the change though...

    I've changed my mind 100 times in my head between all 4 colors, hand style and ND vs. date dials
    I've ended with white Date cathedral hands and had started with blue ND pencil hands
    I have several blue watches, which was a factor even if I love this blue Cascais.
    Now I still feel good about my order but am considering adding a black pencil hands too as a classic black daily wearer and sell my Bull Shark black ND dial as I like how the Cascais wears better on my wrist.
    WIS problems

    Thanks for the pics Watches503, but I think I am officially in the white-faced camp. Also, I don't want to bother the Borealis lady any more than I have already.

    Btw, she is wonderful. I can't believe how fast she responds and makes the changes that I need.

    I can't believe some of yall been waiting for this piece from the middle of last year. I made the order 2 days ago, and I am already antsy and impatient.

    That's awesome ! That's a great advantage of letting us share pics of prototypes. Less buyer's remorse for some and more peace of mind of knowing almost exactly what you'll be getting.

    I'm on the white dial wagon too but this look I shared a couple days ago really has me thinking about a second Cascais or swapping my order again.

    Objectively I think the blue dial is the most aesthetically satisfying, but for some reason when it comes to actually sporting on the wrist I prefer, white, black, or even orange over blue for some reason. I also find it hard to find straps that work with blue dials (besides cognac brown straps) but JeepDaddy here seemed to have proven me wrong by modeling all his straps for us.

    (*Btw, I love calling him "JeepDaddy" - cracks me up)
