    I too was back and forth bet the black and blue...however, it didn't take me long to realize that I never owned a blue ceramic bezel and so that sealed the deal for me! The hue on that blue is just magnificent! I'm already picturing myself wearing it on a crisp blue skied summer! lol don't mean to be poetic and stuff but it's that type of watch folks! The specs (stp Swiss auto movement, anti magnetic, etc) is frosting on the cake! Can't wait!

    Is it normal antimagnetic or Faraday cage?

    Just my $0.02 ... black goes better with almost anything in your wardrobe ... and the C3 X1 lume is stronger too. :)

    Yeah, very true ... but nearly ALL my watches are Black dials !!!

    Thought I'd go for the Blue for some variety, so just a pity they don't come with the C3 X1 too !

    ... also another crazy thought came to my mind ...

    Wonder if Maria and Carlos would consider coming out with a Bronze Cascais ... ???

    Since the Cascais is pretty similar all round to the Oris 65 42mm, it might look pretty interesting, no ?

    Kind of like the Carl Brashear version ... !!!

    Very cool !

    I got the same problem, when I was choosing between the brown and white. But in the end, I went with white. :)
