    Looks great if you hold your thumb over the cyclops. Loving the red triangle and fauxtina

    Looks better here than the leaked pic I saw a couple of weeks ago. The lume is less nasty for sure.

    Do I wanna pay £4100 for it though..... no I do not.

    I haven't seen a cyclops at 6'o clock position - have there been any more like these?

    is that any different to other current aquaracers?

    sadly, yes

    All the 43mm Aquaracers have a 6 o clock cyclops.
    It was their distinguishing feature on release.
    I say distinguishing... it was more a case of people pointing and laughing
    But they've got over it

    Thankfully you can avoid that by buying a green 40mm instead.

    Having said that, the cyclops isn't that noticeable as it's under the glass.

    So, in contrast to the green, non-LE titanium one this WoS one now has titanium case and bracelet in “normal” metal tone? :thumbsdown:

    I’ll say it quietly, but looks like a complete mix-match of the BB58 & Pelagos. Limited to 500, which may take some time to shift!

    Doesn't it. I'm not sold on it 100% but I'd take it over either of those for sure

    The price stings, though…
    What does the normal, green titanium one go for in the UK?

    I have to say though, that I don't really appreciate this idea of reimagining the Aquaracer as a 'vintage' diver. I know TAG want us to believe the fairytale that the Aquaracer is in fact the 1000 Series, but it isn't. It's a mish mash of the 2000 and 3000 Series, a gloriously avant-garde mish mash for sure, but putting retro fauxtina on it is a dick move in my honest opinion.

    OK. So more like 3k to 3.5k street price…
    Well - good luck to WoS moving these (I do believe they still had the 42mm “Elegant” Panda Carreras around for quite some time?)

    Still got them. I saw one in London a couple of weeks ago.... can't even sell 250 of them!

    Given the history of the 1000 and the success of the bb58, there seems like an opportunity to create a reasonably faith modern interpretation of the 1000.
