I understand that if one's eyesight is not what it used to be, magnifying the date might help, but surely in the majority of cases the cyclops doesn't really help too much...?

    My eyesight is pretty good so maybe I should just shut up.
    In that regard I feel that the cyclops is really more just for looks than anything. I used to like them, but now I am more drawn to watches with no dates; or at least if they have to have a date, then it should be unmagnified and have a domed crystal.

    Although, the fact that Squale is one of very few homages that have proper 2.5x Rolex-like magnification to me is reason alone to keep them on the crystal.

    Just got my 50 atmos black pvd this morning. The blackness of the pvd finish looks better in real life than I thought! Got to get use with the thickness of the diver though, I'm used to wearing flieger/pilot watches. Overall it looks good, I'm happy with it.

    That is a thing of beauty, hoangvisuals. I'm really digging the clean, bold but unpretentious look of the 50's, and the PVD somehow really does make it look different than the SS versions. (It seems like the PVD versions of some watches look like their regular SS siblings in bad light.)

    Congrats!

    Thanks Spiker! I was drawn to the case myself. You are right it's a pretty low profile case but if you look close enough it has a sort of a wicked stance to it.
    I think the pvd looks better than the shiny SS case. If they had a sandblasted version I would think it would be even better.

    Congrads! And the isofrane combo looks awesome. In fact this is one of the best isofrane combos I've ever seen!

    Anyone managed to open the case back of the 1521 to see the movement? Using my hands and a wrench tool I was not able to budge it! I didn't want to go all out in fear of slipping the wrench on the beautiful case back :)

    I'm guessing you mean a case removal tool, with the 3 pins? Please don't use anything else or you will seriously risk damaging your case back.
