    Exactly - in my opinion, polished makes the watch too blingy and actually "cheapens" the look

    Is the bracelet going to be standard or an option? If it's an option then why not offer both styles?

    Please do, the polished bracelet adds an element of class to the rugged shape and size, not to mention how it highlights the chrome hands and dial markings (there's a reason they're not brushed).

    No polish please. It's a dive watch not a Brighton bracelet or some dinnerware.

    I want to say that now: I like to much the polished SS ;) Plus in dive mode: it will attract attract more fishes!!!

    So: I vote for a maximum of polished parts (as standard or as an option).
    It depends if you want a barracuda to snack on your wrist.

    In regards to the rubber strap, i would hope the 22mm version for the 40mm case would be proportionately shorter. There is a strong likely hood that those of us with smaller (7" and smaller) wrists will be the ones wearing the 40mm case and it would be nice not to have a ridiculously long strap that unbalances the design but would fit well on smaller wrists. This all sounds good. In terms of rubber type/quality i like what benetto cinturini does. Something in that calibre for quality and cost would be great. That said maybe there is better out there that i haven't experienced...

    Bottom line is there is a lot of good stuff going on in this design...please oh please be affordable (i know we all have definitions of affordable..). The 40mm sizes and possible 9015 movement could really make this a break through watch for h2o.

    It's a tool watch with chrome hands and dial markings, a sterile bezel option, and wouldn't even be the first.

    Also it's the favorite H2O of many, including Clemens.

    When it comes to the discussion about polished vs brushed I like the amount of polish and brushed on the prototype. Just right. I would vote to leave it as is.

    I trust Clemens to make the right decision on the finish but, if I had to vote, I'd say minimal polish. Keep it toolish.
