    No, I don't think so.

    Because I prefer to keep what I have "original" even if I really think that the bracelet should have been fully brushed (especially for a tool watch, I use my divers always in the sea, pool etc).

    I assumed that you meant you were going to brush the Centre link, as you kind of gave that impression on the previous page. I think Rob read it the same way I did when he asked about brushing the clasp too?

    Are you going to just replace the bracelet instead?

    This post. Reading it again, it could mean either really.

    Hi,

    I'd like to have the bracelet brushed (which necessarily and logically means the bracelet + the buckle).

    But I'd rather keep the original watch (easier to resell later).

    So you did mean this in your original post then, albeit decided not to?

    Only asking to see if I read it right. What you choose is fair enough.

    Yes, I prefer to do nothing to preserve the original appearance. And not have any worries the day I want to resell it.

    But I find it incomprehensible not to have fully brushed the bracelet (+ buckle) when it's a diver / tool watch (I had already hesitated to have the bracelet and buckle fully brushed on my Pro 200 last year).

    Clocked one in my nearest Boutique today. Better than the photo further up, but not as good as the render.

    I would still go for the OG Carbon Solargraph, but there is a good price difference.

    It was nice in fairness, but I didn’t try on or see it out of the case as had family with me and heading for lunch.

    It’s leaning a little towards more of a solid blue colour than a full sunray effect. Still cool for the money though.

    Rob’s render post above is a pretty fair rendition.

    Yes. It's almost like they made two renders, one realistic and one 'sexy'.

    Strolled back for some photos for you @dtf. I tried to take at different angles to show the colour flip. Difficult to avoid reflections as the Boutique has a silly number of lights above.

    Also had to try on Ron’s Green beast, as they had that too.

    In your photos it almost looks like the lume is a slightly different colour between hands and markers

    You’re welcome to use them, although they’re not exactly the top quality images you usually take.
