    Congrats @Hubert
    I'm making a call to my local WOS this morning to see if it's available here in Australia.

    Then I like this one for now, I’d prefer the dial to be an ice white rather than cream if I’m honest.

    I think I’d also like both straps too lol. I guess a way round rush would be to get the metal strap and then perhaps get a custom leather one at a later date

    Getting it on the bracelet and an aftermarket strap later will be the cheaper option if you want both styles.

    However, if you want the OEM racing rally strap, I'm not sure how easy it is to get separately, since this watch seems only available via WoS. OTOH, the bracelet looks to be the standard Carrera Elegant version, which should be easy to order from any AD.

    Judging by the scores so far, maybe the gold not JH90 isn't going to be WOTY after all! :confused:

    Yeh! If this was a grand cheaper, I'd have bought it already! As it is, I'm tempted

    Yeah, I think their gold watches are severely over-priced.

    But it's more than a grand cheaper than the blue Porsche RS 2.7 and I think I like this one more. Very tempting indeed!

    Hell of a premium on both those Porsche watches

    From Maxine at the Meadowhall branch, she said it's more cream then beige, which is probably a good thing!

    The striations in the dial look strange... lighting maybe? Or were there stripes?

    It's wrapped in plastic, could be that.

    You can see it around the crown and pushers

    Hopefully it is the plastic wrap. I'm changing my score if the dial itself really has that horizontal wood grain like finish.

    Surely it is the plastic wrap; the pictures on the WOS site suggest it is a non-textured, opaline finish?

    Yeah, it's just shadows created by the wrap and store spotlights surely.

    In the UK it's about £1000 less than the blue porsche, and I think I'd always be thinking 'I should have spent the extra and bought the porsche'. If it was £4k I'd probably have bought it by now.
