    Ha, he definitely offended a majority of Sweden's 10 million people population...

    Looks like it's an Aquaracer? Probably not something that will excite me too much, but red and blue are indeed a nice colour combination!

    Ice hockey isn't really a sport in the UK, I've only ever associated it with Canada due to watching it in bars over there.

    Haha if that's the argument, rugby is not a sport in Sweden, but I know South Africa has produced some really good players;)

    Hockey is huge in the Scandinavian countries, and Russia as well. Where there's lots of ice.....

    Hello, new member here. I'm a big Lundqvist fan and this watch caught my eye. The Aquaracer that's shown, is that Quartz? Don't the Automatic/Calibre movments state it above the 6?

    Thx

    There looks to be two lines of text above the 6- some in red and some in white.

    My guess is that this is quartz- generally, the quartz Aquaracer dials have two lines of text ("300 meters/ 1000ft" for example, while the automatics have three (Calibre 5/ Automatic/ 300m 1000ft)

    It looks like a quartz second hand too, a thin needle rather than a thicker hand with lume like on the automatic aquaracers

    Thx, not a fan of quartz. I know Tom Brady's LE got the automatic with the Carrera but was hoping Lundqvist's would at least have automatic as well.

    Oh man, that blue is gorgeous. I guess it'll come down to price. Anyone know what exact Aquaracer model is based off of?

    I had an invitation to the launch event, but unfortunately had to cancel because of work. So I guess the the mission ot find who Henrik's hairdresser is continues....

    I was a bit disappointed with the watch though. First of all, the Aquaracer is not really one of my favourite divers and second, the red "stripe" on the dial was not really my cup of tea. However, based on Nortime Sweden's Instagram feed, the event seemed like a success.

    I think the red is quite cool, it's that stupidly oversized crown I could do without...

    Crown as in logo, not the crown - which is normal sized. Obvs.

    I'd agree with you there, the foundation logo is not really fitting to the rest of the watch. That could have been used in a much better way, as an engraving on the case back or whatever, but on the dial it doesn't really work for me either.
