    quick dirty impressions of JR aquascope

    quick dirty impressions





    blue is nice...especially the shiny blued hands; again impressed with the 'floating' indices



    quite a bit of depth to the dial here


    the rubbergator is nice



    like super comfy

    clasp is very well designed






    The crown is oddly hard to grip to screw..with the terrascope I just kinda pick it out with a nail and off we go, not this one.
    this one here it kinda screws in like a GS(winding as u screw in)

    cool caseback, feels a bit scratchy

    brushed look on the bezel, and sunken lume pip is pretty cool,bezel clicks clean



    facet-ed date window is nice too, I think the font seems a bit weird



    lume not as great as the terrascope I had..slightly splotchy on the hour hand


    for some reason I thought the white of the terrascope to be more polar, comparison pic





    good value overall


    lume shot of course

    Congrats! Great pics as usual from you! I do really like therubbergator band. I think I'll have to figure out how to get one for mine! Yes I will. Wear this in great health and much happiness!

    I posted a lume shot of mine earlier today that shows pretty good lume on my Aquascope:

    I really like that color combination.

    I would be curious to hear your impressions of the Rubbergator strap. It received quite a bit of news when it was announced but I've read very little since. I am interested to know how it wears over time and if the gator pattern wears down.
