    I like it...except the blue sub-dials. Carbon case with stealth black and aqua is cool..but the sub-dials don't look quite right to me.

    Rest of the watch looks the goods

    What you guys think ?

    Is this the closest to dark lord i could ever be ?

    I prefer no "bamford" written on the dial though although now its produced at Tag Heuer i dont think we have option to remove it

    Is this a prototype because the subdials don't look like they are positioned right. See how the blue at the top is much thinner than at the bottom?

    You're not kidding!

    Agreed. I think white sub-dials might have been better.

    Shame about Bamford on the dial. They could have put that on the back, especially since this not a Bamford custom job but is actually manufactured by TAG Heuer.

    Yeah, I can't say I like the blue sub-dials. A bit much... wonder if they would make me one in lime green?;)

    Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8....

    Clutching at straws with the name, but this is a very nice looking watch, even though it's an Omega.

    It becomes a bit too many yellow details, especially with the strap, but overall I'm quite impressed by the Apollo 8 edition. Especially the case back and the modifications made to the movement to make it go better with the rest of the watch.

    However, that 44.5mm is way too big for me. It surely fits better in with the rest of the "Dark Side" watches, but it would be nice to see it in a bit smaller size IMHO.
