^^^Several things comes to mind. F*ing cold, f*ing cool, f*ing ballsy, but mostly too f*ing cold.

Thanks for the comparison shots, Danny; it's smaller than I envisioned.

Cool pickup Danny. Green isn't a color I could imagine would turn out nice on a watch. But it did in this case.

Mine arrived yesterday afternoon, (5 days delivery to USA from Hong Kong, including a weekend).

I like it more than I thought I would from the photos on the website. Size is really good and it wears very comfortably, (it doesn't wear as large as it looks in the wrist shot). Finishing is nice, case and bezel design are very eye catching, I really like the dial on this one. Dial has a slight texture and is a "sandwich" type dial. It sits deep within the case for a very interesting look. Lume is really bright and lasts all night, (dial & hands are blue, bezel markers are green lume).

Mine came on a black leather strap with a stainless steel buckle like Danny has on his. The leather is stiff IMO and that buckle is overly huge. I tried several different straps out of my watch box... a rubber dive strap with deployant buckle, an Isofrane (it looked really good), and then I settled on a black Nato with polished hardware.

Some low quality cell phone pics.......

Here's the stock Leather strap it came with:

Here's a few pics from different angles on the Black Nato strap:
