    I can't decide about white faced watches, something always looks wrong about them, and even when I like them I can't shake the feeling that they look cheap.

    On the contrary, i like white faced watch. Something feels "vintage" about them

    I like calibre 1887 white dial but with indices not with numerals indicator. Can't seem to find it in my area.

    This aquaracer in particular remind me of entry level rolex by glance. Dont know if anyone agree.

    The Rolex Explorer II is by no mean an entry level model...

    You should try Cordura / Sailcloth straps on diver watches for a change.

    I know I bang on about rubber straps A LOT, but this one is screaming out for one. Do you mean those funny looking things that some of the Aquaracer's come on? I didn't like them to start with but I'm slowly coming around a bit...

    Just tried this on. The pictures though lovely just don't do the watch justice. It's got bags of presence and the white/orange combination gives it a really modern look. I'm sold, it's on my list.
