Couple of thoughts on these after wearing it non-stop the past 24 hours or so.

- I thought the maxi/new case looked nearly identical in photos. In the metal it’s much more obvious. The new lugs rule IMO, though I’m a guy that actually likes the maxi case as well.

- Biggest change to me is actually the bracelet. That 1mm makes a world of difference and the watch just hugs the wrist now. It wears better than the maxi case for me, less floppy.

- I was worried about the clasp being even wider across, but it’s a non issue for me. It’s a beefy piece of hardware for sure, though. I’ve never owned a 126600 but I imagine it’s very similar to the clasp to that.

- It could be just me, but the dial is a beautiful deep, inky gloss black that seems a little different than the previous. It could be my imagination and the overall profile playing tricks on me when I look at it, but it just looks different. I’d love to see a side by side in person one day.

- Bezel seems slightly wider and dial markers ever so slightly smaller. I like that.

I’m impressed overall, but I’m also a guy that usually likes boring and the Sub has been my all time favorite watch since I was a kid. All the little things add up to an excellent next generation watch IMO. For those waiting, it’s worth it.

It’s a great watch in every way and the dial is incredible - I don’t know any dial that compares to the modern sub

That said, and I’ve had two of the SubC’s, i still prefer the old school 5 digit models.. the new ones are just too blingy for me - but I’m not a real WIS, so...
It’s got a little bling with the ceramic bezel, but the proportions of the newest (41) Sub remind me of cross between the 5-digit models and the maxi case models. It’s very nice. You wouldn’t think the extra 1mm would make a difference but overall it’s just wonderful.

Wait a second...

probably shouldn't tighten it if you can't get the sand out of it first.
