Green looks cool. This one is steel.

This is kinda interesting. Although 36mm would have a very minimal male interest, I like the dial.
Looks great!

Cool, an Oris Rolex LV homage. The least they could do is not copy the ugly boring green ceramic insert.

This Source of Life LE is a homerun. Anyone have any info on how to order? Delivery window? I know someone here had their order placed.

This is nice.
Why can't the aquis come with normal lugs?

That would make it perfect. This one looks so nice I’d probably flip it in a month instead of a few days :grin:

Because it would ruin the look of the watch. I hate watches that can’t take a standard strap but if you redesigned the lugs on these it would change the whole case shape and now look like a lot of other watches. Plus I think the Aquis looks fantastic on the bracelet and the awesome rubber. No need for anything else.

I agree with Don. The bracelet and rubber both look great. If you have no taste, you can easily order an ugly custom leather strap for it.

My initial interest in the Devil Diver seems to be waning.

Something is off with the reissue...perhaps it's the hands (a touch too short perhaps) or maybe because it's too literal an interpretation (the clear bubble markers look kinda cheapish now). I'm not feeling the love so much anymore.
