Different. I can't wait to see the actually prototypes.

Not sure about the white chapter ring, but otherwise I like it.

The bezel is different on the renderings. I like the look, but would pass on a carbon fiber-esque dial.

There is a lot to like about this. Case shape looks particularly good. I like a lot of Borealis watches but somehow never quite pull the trigger

That's a very interesting offering. I'm not a fan of gold on case or dial, but like it overall. I like the white chapter ring and the dial, but I agree the carbon fiber look is less than optimal. Really like how the black bezel insert contrasts with the dial and case. Would prefer soone curve on those lugs.

Oh neat Terry, you are right, this is different ! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: But not to the point
of being too different. ..Nice, and classic overall, and easy to read, but with
a sporty meets elegance attitude ! 8-) :) Thanks again Terry !!!

I think I like this, but can't quite get my head around the odd lug-endlink thing going on.
