I quite like that but those end links are terrible.

Rubber strap looks kind of cool. Not feeling the case design though. Too much Omega with the manual He valve at 10.

Agreed on the end links.

They look like they belong on another model.

they matched them to the bracelet instead of to the case. stupid.

maybe it's just me, but i've always hated the tire tread looking rubber straps. but i'm not really a rubber strap kind of guy, so take that with a grain of salt.

Very nice, very attractive. Many lines of text yet still a clean looking dial.
Lose the endlinks. Horrible.
Lose the helium valve/ wart. Unnecessary and ugly.

Is it a rule for micro's that you must never index the bezel properly?? FFS
