just got this in really nice especially at the price point
how is the bezel operation?
smooth, just a little bit of play. I would prefer it be a little harder to turn but all in all its good
i read a few people have had to remove it and adjust it.

not at that point Id like it just a little harder to turn but it all lines up. There is a lot to like here the lume is excellent (C3), the sapphire is very clear, applied markers, ceramic lumed bezel, really a lot to like for $299- 5% discount.

Lasted 22 days and then this popped up for sale, and that's when I caved in....

To be honest, I can't remember which one I pulled the trigger on first, but the Islander arrived first so I'll go with that

Bought Carlo’s 773 to kick my year off. Wanted something with a navy blue face, as I’ll be selling my Cameron DeepSea at some point to fund a birth year SeaDweller 16660.

I need to trim down the watch box. Really want to have a go at the new Ed White. Problem is, I’ve become too good at picking the right pieces and don’t want to let anything go. Decisions.

I absolutely love this. I wonder how it would fit me now that I’m not as XXL as I used to be.
