Thread: Chameleon.

  1. #1

    Chameleon.

    Mlcor's kind compliment directed at my Diastar this morning got me to thinking that the 50 Years of Disatar LE is a chameleon, adapting easily to it's surroundings. While the tc case makes all Diastars pick up their surrounding environment, the 50 Years brushed satin dial does the same. That is unusual for a Diastar.

    Here are a few pictures I've taken over the summer, which I think illustrates my point.

    This is reasonably close to it's true colour.

    Very cool pictures, Henry! The first picture makes the dial look like mother-of-pearl. That really is a chameleon.

    Really nice pictures, Henry. Fascinating to see how much the watch changes with its surroundings

    Great photos Hank. My mirror dial DS1 does the same but I don't have your vision to be able to capture it as well as you.

    Really neat. A veritable cornucopia of colors, and it really shows off the versatility of that dial.
