    The all black on strap doesn't actually look bad. Some of the other colour combinations, however, I will refrain from commenting on.

    Whats the deal with the lugs/strap integration? I've heard different things.

    Had the same thought when I saw the pic.

    It looks like the date wheel on the blue is actually blue??

    I'll give it time. It's already growing on me... the symmetrical date treatment is a huge improvement...

    They've totally ruined the blue one. If you wanted a versatile blue dial watch, you would go with the Aqua Terra. That's not the case anymore. This is a purely sports watch:

    Fear not: there are like three versions of blue now, one of which is in the classic Aqua Terra blue.

    Apparently, this one is just in 38mm and has an integrated bracelet. I'm interested in the 41mm and need to be able to swap straps. There are two 41mm versions, one with a blue second hand, one with the blue tipped one posted above.

    Thanks once again for the excellent coverage. Nice to see the blue date on the blue dial now.

    Again, the different line depths look weird, especially at this angle. I don't like the integrated end link at all, but I suppose I wear it on the bracelet for the most part, so maybe it's not so bad. As far as size goes, I have a small wrist, so 38mm is even better for me than 38.5mm. I wish they had lumed the minute hand more. The one thing I wish I could change on the old version...
