    I have been wearing the non pvd, non phantom version of this for a year or so. It's a smart thing, lightweight, slim, and very comfortable. The strap is instantly comfy, no need for it to bed in.

    You need to be fairly careful with the pvd, its quite tough but will scratch.

    The phantom dial is a matter of opinion, it's not the most legible, but I think it looks really good on the wrist.

    It's always been one of my bucketlist to own this phantom 3 hander aquaracer.

    But the boutique in my country don't have it, so i never get to see one in real life.

    I would say design wise it's really cool. But you need to be careful of the movement, since lots of complaints recently on the forum has emerged to avoid disappointment.

    Still one of the coolest watch i wish i own, IMHO.
