    Help on two unique Aqua Terras

    So I'm a bit torn here. I love both of these watches for their own reason. Trying to decide between the 15000 gauss bumblebee and the green accented golf edition. Both are unique in a fairly subtle way. Obviously the bumblee is much less subtle in what is different about it but it is such a eye catching watch that I always come back to. The golf edition has the same uniqueness with the subtle color difference but in a much more toned down way and I do like the green color used. I like the inclusion of the yellow 15000 gauss writing and also doing the seamaster writing in green on the golf. I know it's up to me in the end but just wanted to get your opinions.

    It's a tough one.

    I prefer the yellow/black colour combination over the green/black, but the yellow/black stripes on the second hand is a sticking point for me.

    Had the second hand just been yellow, it would be an easy choice for me.

    I definitely prefer the yellow/black combo of the bumblebee. I also feel that green is just off enough it will limit what you can wear the watch with. Good luck.

    In reality in some lights the green on the golf edition looks black. I don’t think that would happen with the yellow.

    I have the "golf"edition. It's an outstanding piece.

    I tried both of those on when looking for my AT. Both great. The green seconds hand on the golf really sets off the dial but I think the bumblebee has the edge as its got the 15000 gauss on the dial which makes it a bit different and the seconds hand is pretty funky. Careful on the price though. Ive seen those selling for more than they should (in my opinion) as they reduced the AT price at some point so I've seen the bumblebee selling pre owned for more than a brand new from AD AT. I pressed the store on this and they said they would give me a great deal but it was a deal on the original RRP. Best of luck picking your AT

    You're definitely right about the price of the 15000 gauss. If I can find a good deal on one that's the route I'll go as it's just so unique and a bit over the top. Realistically I'll be probably get the golf and be perfectly happy with it. I actually wear a very close colored green polo for work everyday so *shrugs*

    I had the original golf AT (didnt had the green second sweep hand); from those 2 would pick the bumble bee for sure
