    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 !

    Regards,
    It's possible. But we might need to wait till next year, or after, for it to happen. :)

    So, after ordering Borealis Sea Storm. I was purposely avoiding this thread but since last night I have been browsing through this thread and I honestly heard that White version is calling my name a couple of time.

    I have a picture of my current collection in my phone and have been looking at it since this morning trying to decide that which one most likely two I can flip to make room for this. Priced at $450 this will be my most expensive purchase yet. But at that price point there are some other WIShlist items I would like to compare this with .. Urghhhh it Hamilton vs Steinhart all over again.

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

    The lume on the Blue is plenty strong. Kinda shame to pick a watch based on lume if you prefer the other version. You may regret it. It's not like one has bad lume cant miss those giant markers

    No worries for me.

    In fact, one main problem I had is that I don't like giant markers, and the white one cushioned the giant marker effects. That is a fact and I can't lie.

    So yah, phlabrooy, do whatever works for you. Don't be influenced by my skewed opinion. :)

    I really can't wait for my white Cascais
    I must say having had a Cascais in hand for some time, the markers which I initially found too big, are a non-issue. In fact the design feels just right, cohesive and I much prefer it to the Bull Shark too

    I'm again thinking of changing back to the black. My search for a good black diver had been fruitless and this might work even with the thin bezels...
