    If anyone is curious, the bezel has zero play forward or backward. I'm super easy to please in this department but just wanted to share that it won't move anywhere without applying proper pressure. It feels great, but I'm not really a bezel expert.

    Thank you! glad to have the distraction of this great hobby and online friends/family.
    I am very tempted to grab one but I am really unable to decide which I like better!! :)
    I'd love to check it out in the metal and provide honest opinion and share photos

    Is it only C3 that's currently been giving this treatment or will it be available on BGW9 too?

    P.S. I agree with Brice, the white needs a contrasting bezel though in my opinion something other than black... possibly blue or a deep red would have looked cool.

    All of the dial options have C3 X1 and BGW9 except for blue, which only come in BGW9.

    Here's the BGW9 lume

    I have the black-no date on order (love C3 lume), and have also thought about the white dial. Not normally a white dial guy but the bezel looks interesting and those lume shots are awesome, may want the date version.

    I had the blue sapphire bezel Helson Shark 42 and can assure you the lume on the both lume options of the Cascais is more powerful than that Shark.



    But I feel you there. Is kinda annoying to see some companies wanna sell watches with some super photoshopped pictures. I asked for a chance to take a look at a prototype of these and share it around.

    Maria sent me 3 so I will be shipping a couple to other people I know on Facebook so they can share their honest opinion and pictures.

    I contacted DEMO about this but God bless his mom, she's bit ill so Dave doesn't have much time for that.

    Here's another shot of the black dial C3 X1 next to the SKX007.


    It's no secret that I'm a fan of many Borealis watches so that's why I feel kinda odd sharing how impressed I am by the Cascais last night. That's why I'm looking for fresh eyes to check these out so I don't bore you with my biased opinion.

    With that said, I don't wanna look for fresh eyes for the white dial version. Wow, I wanna hold it for as long as possible before it's time to send it back. I've been done with white dials for a while, none of them ever get me like the white Sharkmaster 1000, but my whole blue versus black choice issue is out the window now. I switched my order last night to white cathedral C3 X1.

    If anyone is curious, there are only 30 made of the brown.

    It's a cloudy day here but here's a quick look at the brown BGW9 version.






    I'll be sharing more pictures as the days go by.

    Hi,

    Sorry, I haven't read all thread and did not know you had the actual watches in hand. I agree with you, the lume looks spectacular.

    Cool then, looking forward to this release, interesting dial and the pricing is very competitive.

    Cheers,

    S.
