    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
