    Tony-

    How's the bezel on this one? Did you notice the same issues as Kew over on the OWS with the feel of it?

    Until you mentioned it I had forgotten about Kew's comment on the bezel.. Seems OK to me, but then I don't have a lot of divers to compare it with.. Certainly has a postive feel to the movement of the bezel.. When I look really close I can see that the bezel doesn't quite line up with the minute marks..

    Yeah, the bezel alignment seems to be the issue sometimes with these. A shame at this pricepoint, but a beautiful watch nonetheless! Congrats!

    I recently acquired another version of this watch and agree with Tony in regard to the quality of this was watch. And the bezel operates and aligns perfectly. I also highly recommend this watch ... if you can find one.
