well ya.. he said he wanted white ... in hindsight I think he just meant white face ("surface") but Swatch has tons of different styles. Should be able to find something

by surface I mean dial, I somehow forgot the term. this one looks nice, no?

hmm thanks but that's more on the ugly side. with $120 there's a lot of better model by seiko or even casio.

It's a good looking piece, but I'm a bit over ceramic and faux patina.  Add that to the fact that IWC isn't exactly giving them away, and it's a non-starter for me.

Re: The IWC.  I'd still like to see it in metal.  Although 12K is a bit much even if discounted a bit.  

post #12249 of 48312

All that said, it is one of the pieces I'm most looking forward to trying on when I make my annual watch pilgrimage to NYC this summer (at the beautiful new IWC boutique).

It's a pretty cool watch, not my taste but I like it. But that green strap would I change to black rubber or something.

post #12251 of 48312

Apparently, they have had some issues with the strap and plan on replacement.  They should have options in my opinion.  The strap looks cheap for a 12K piece.

What do you gents think about Prometheus watches? They appear to offer a quality movement for a very affordable price.
