    Quick pre-Basel pic of the new Aquaracer 300m Ceramic model- this is the Jeremy Lin example.

    Same Aquaracer case, but tough-looking bezel and great yellow highlights...love that strap too!

    Yes, saw the official announcement on the TH website and on the forum yesterday. I am liking these new details and the nylon strap.

    Agree- the hands are great, love the chunky bezel...and the strap is almost my favourite part.

    So where does that leave the Aquaracer 500m? We now have an Aquaracer 300m with steel bezel and a ceramic bezel.

    It looks great; I wonder if there will be a similar one - non LE.

    Here's a better look at the watch. Yes, I understand that this is the first in a new range of Aquaracers.

    Looks like they've used more dive watch concepts, e.g. the fine markings up to 20, and the yellow minute hand. WR is good at 300m. I wonder what the lume is like?

    And old logo on the dial?

    Think it will take a while for the logo changes to come through- all the 2015 models I saw last week have the "old" logo

    So does this mean there is now going to be the one 300m watch instead of two like the old wan/wap combo?

    I have to say, that applied bezel insert doesn't look too bad. In fact, it looks like it "fits" instead of being an after thought. I would say this could be quite a successful unification of the wan/wap models.
    I think I want those hands and markers on a regular way model.

    The remaining question would be what are they going to do to the wak?

    And yes, sailcloth straps are cool.

    No, I think there will be two 300m models- the "new" Aquaracer 300m (with steel bezel) was only launched about 6 months ago, so I don't see that disappearing any time soon.

    I
    I think this is because most dives are done under 20 minutes, therefore providing more granular feedback on remaining air time.

    I miss the yellow touch on the non-LE version.

    Meh. Really prefer it without the horizontal striping on the face.

    Loved this when I first saw it and I've been searching around to see if a non-limited version would be offered. Thanks for posting that picture! I agree with other posters that the yellow minute hand and flat dial on the limited-edition version are great, and it's too bad they're gone for the regular version--but I still like it a lot. Hoping to see a blue one too, maybe with orange highlights? Whatever the case, looking forward to seeing this one arrive in stores.

    Yes, I think I do too- more different to the other Aquaracers. I believe that there is a full range of these coming, so let's see which different styles are offered.
