I like everyone of them. Especially the olive green.

How'd you get yours so fast? It states shipping in August.

All models were initially available in May, but the first batches went really fast - second round available in August.

I had a bracelet from a previous model, but they are not available any more I don't think..
Not sure if they will ever bring the option back but it would be good.

So I have been thinking and scheming a bit :think:
What would happen if I bought a U1-D and did a sneaky bezel swap :excited:

The dial printing is very clean and crisp, and the lume plots are also very even and cleanly applied.

Lume has not been applied very thick however, and so is not particularly bright or long lasting. Not one for the lume fiends that's for sure

Thanks. I'm more concerned about the legibility of time on the white dial under normal lighting anyways.

At first I wanted to order the U1 white but the more I look at the shape of the U2 case the more I prefer it over the U1. Is the 39mm gonna look tiny? My smalles watch is a sinn 103

-------------------------
I find the watch to wear like a true 39-40MM case... I find it comfortable on the 2 piece nato. And with the drilled lugs plenty of strap options.

:cheers:

My wrist is 6.75....Anything over 7.25 and it might seems small. Depends on what you like...

Why does the U2 look like an upside down watch?

the case design is kinda interesting, with the lugs aligned on the crown: this makes for a higher center of gravity, not like curving lugs which embrace the wrist more.
i find it comfortable, no issues with the lugs, but a simple pull-thru single piece strap may not fit as well as the 2 piece that comes with it.
my only issue is the flat black dial and sweep hand, sometimes it's tough to see the sweep. so I'm going to paint the sweep for a bit more contrast.
