Just received this watch in the mail. Figured I'd share my initial thoughts. The lighting is terrible in my apartment right now, but I've include a few pics.
First of all, I'm impressed with Deep Blue's response time. I had the watch in hand 2 days after ordering.
This thing is thick. And quite heavy.
The dial is my favorite thing about this watch. It's a great color, and it catches the light beautifully.
The bezel isn't too tight or loose, and it seems to be aligned correctly. There is a bit of play, but it's not bad at all. The ratcheting is a little loud--I prefer a more discreet volume, like with my SKX013.
At first I thought the lume pip on the bezel wasn't centered, but now I'm not sure. It's only sliiighty off, if any.
The crown action is great. screwing and winding are both very smooth.
You may not be able to tell from the photos, and it's hard to tell in person too, but it seems like the gap between the bezel and crystal is uneven. Like the gap is wider at 11:00 than it is at 4:00, for instance. Again, very subtle.
The bracelet has pin/collar links, which I was not prepared for. I had to order a set of long pin pushers so I can hammer out the pins--they're tight! Looking forward to wearing this pepsi beast once I can make the necessary adjustments.
