Here's the new toy I received today. Like a kid in the candy store here are my early impressions:
Dial: The melon color is just that - melon. It's not an orange color. More like a cantelope color and it's spectacular. Don't think I really captured it in the photos.
Hands: This one was made with a custom hand combo. Large and very legible the color matches the markers.
Case: The sandblasted case is massive and gobbles up my hand - love it.
Bezel: A very satisfying snap with each click. A simple but dramatic look.
Crown: One of the neatest looking logos on a crown I've seen. The crown itself is big enough to be easy to turn.
Superlume: I haven't done any real tests but the lume is strong and looks great. I don't know if it will ever beat my Seamaster, but it's excellent.
Bracelet: An attractive, brushed stainless steel, tool-like bracelet. It won't compete with Omega for showy looks but it's very nice. A few high spots were easily polished out. Some machining marks on the end links (which always annoy me) were also easily smoothed out. It also comes with a rubber strap and deployant.
Carrying Case: Very cool industrial case.
Haven't checked the accuracy yet. Will let you know.
All in all, a definite keeper!
