    Question New Squale 20 Atmos Ceramic — Maxi vs Militaire. Which do u prefer?

    Squale 20 Atmos Ceramic — Maxi vs. Militaire.

    Which do you guys prefer? The ceramic bezel changes the aesthetics a bit as it is glossier than the aluminum. Which watch has the more cohesive design?

    Maxi — White lume, steel hands, flat crystal, cyclops.

    Personally, I will always prefer "normal" lume to aged lume. It can then age gracefully if I will keep the watch that long.

    Militaire for several reasons....ditch the cyclops, ditch the mercedes hands, ditch the flat crystal.

    I don’t believe superluminova patinas in the same way as tritium.

    I like the militaire because (1) in person the domed crystal is amazing, at least to me, and (2) it has less of the direct cues from a current submariner (no cyclops, no mercedes hour hand, no lollipop seconds hand) and so feels less like a direct homage.

    Does anyone think the new ceramic bezel clashes with the matte black dial? I can’t decide whether I like the combo or not. I feel like while the matte dial looks toolish, the glossy ceramic bezel looks luxury. What do u all think? Do they clash? I don’t know.

    They should have done a matte ceramic insert on the Militaire (a la the CW Trident C60 Vintage).

    Wish they would give us a choice, with or without cyclops plus domed crystal.

    Personally, I'd go for the Militaire.

    It is definitely the Militaire for me without a doubt.

    I would LOVE a militaire with white hands and normal lume. That’d be an instant purchase for me.
