    My new Aquaracer 500m Ceramic - WAK2110

    Just arrived this morning, I am in love!





    The ceramic bezel is stunning, it really sets off the watch and makes it sparkle in the sunlight.

    Other than that, what can I say? It's an ETA2824 powered 500m diver which takes design cues from the Omega Seamaster, Rolex Sub-C and Heuer 2000 and - in my opinion - is a stunning looker.

    It's 41mm, my perfect size, and just the right weight. It actually shares a mid-case with the 300m series but has a thicker bezel and case back.The bracelet is a weak point, very fiddly and painful taking links out and the end links get 'stuck' like a cheap watch - maybe I should baby oil it!

    Otherwise, stunning. Worth every penny I paid - if you want a classy dress diver for a lot less than Rolex/Tudor and - to be fair - not that much more than Steinhart money, don't worry about the TAG stigma, these are amazing

    Yes. Me and the wife just buy each other little gifts and treat ourselves to something we really want. So I got this '100 diver watch'... )

    I suppose the obvious question: why not blue?

    I know my answer is because I already have a bunch of black dialled watches which includes two black on black dive watches so blue is the one that grabs me more.

    Two reasons. I have loads of blue watches. Black is more versatile.

    Oh and Black was 400 cheaper.

    Fair enough.
    I do keep looking at the GMT one though; the extra numbers on the bezel fills it better to my eyes.

    I like the spacing of the regular bezel but these do look nice as GMTs. adds a splash of colour too.
