A WIS who goes by earlsy from across the pond had a pretty fun insight into an advantage of the triple date window! They said:
Happy to say that it works like a charm, and might actually be pretty handy when writing a check, or telling some inquiring merfolk the date whilst some meters in the deep.Please could someone enlighten me?
Is the reason for having a tri-date so that, when the minute hand is covering today's date, you can still work it out by seeing the days before and after?
Bronze is softer than stainless steel, so it'll scratch and ding much easier. But that's part of the attraction, along with the way it patinated as it becomes exposed to air and moisture

Just pre-ordered one with the ETA movement. I can't wait. I've been looking at bronze divers in other threads with envy lately.
As stated earlier, I'd like to add my 2 cents for a brown leather strap (distressed). With your buckle installed, the leather strap would complete this watch. Please, please, please make one available. Even if it's an "upgraded" option, I'd gladly pay.

Some people say it really hasn't happened without pictures, so here is proof of my visit this afternoon with Olivier watch founder/designer Roland Oliver Tetenbaum.
Roland was kind enough to spend some time with me discussing watches in general and specifically the Olivier Watch Company and the upcoming Olivier Bronze Diver. I got the chance to try on the prototypes, and hear Roland's thoughts about his design. I now know that watch designing and watch building are in his blood, and that he has the passion and drive to transform his ideas into reality.
Be advised that the designs will be produced in limited quantities, so pre-ordering is advised.
If these prototypes are any indication, I believe you can expect good things from Roland and the Olivier Watch Company, now, and in the future.
Here is a comparison of a pair Roland's Olivier Bronze Divers with my Halios Laguna.
