Nice, must admit I looked at these quite a bit after reading about them on the forum. What do you reckon? How does it compare with your other divers?

The dial is smaller than what I normally go for but then the bezel and shroud make up for it . In the photos it looks like it is a big watch but when on the wrist it is about the same size as most of my Seikos.
One thing I really like is the dial and hands , the dial being a matt finish is really good as it does not jump at you if you catch my drift. Beautiful handset and extremely easy to read.

One big plus is the bracelet although I do not think it is a stock bracelet but an after market one (Domecurb please confirm if this is true ) but the bracelet is really comfy and after taking out just one link is a perfect fit.
I would recommend this brand but I have only had it for 8 hours.

That's a fantastic watch John, you must be thrilled with it and quite rightly too.
