    Nice case & watch
    A little bit big for my taste
    But, this dial is amazing : no minute maker for a diver watch (2nd picture)

    Far too big for me, but I like the look

    I'm really interested in the Brown no min markers, but would love to see a better live pic.I own 2 Benarus & have had many but this 1 needs better pics to help push me.

    William, my favorite Benarus is the bronze one you have...really nice. But I don't see it on their site. Was yours a limited run?

    I really like the look of the case, but those of us who are wristly-challenged, we will never be able to wear anything that big.....sigh!

    I really like this one:

    Would probably want it on a bracelet though.
    I can carry off 44mm; and was quite taken with it/them (SO glad they've done away with the 4.30 date window)..... Right up to the point where I saw they're nearly 18mm thick !... a bit tall for a 300M watch to my mind. Though, at 120g it may not be as top-heavy as I imagine I can forgive my 'Seawolf' for being that thick because it has ten times the depth rating; but not sure on this one, and don't think I want to risk it mail order.
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.

    They look good. I like the dials and new bezel. I'm not sure about the plexi though. I'd prefer a domed sapphire, but for the price it's a decent tradeoff. I've had 5 Morays and can't seem to keep any of them, so I will admire this one from afar.
