    It's a nice pic, but I prefer shots that show the rich tones and starburst of the silver dial. Those are the ones that make me drool.
    The dial is a little too flat & washed out in that shot for my taste. :unsure:

    Love your enthusiasm for the Silver 160. You win the prize for being the ultimate cheerleader fanboy of the year/decade. LOL! ::rimshot::

    I guess he means you can't see the sunburst effect - it appears white rather than silver. Whilst it's a great shot, they've chosen peach as the colour to offset the lume on the hands. In an earlier comment, I said the lume almost appeared salmon rather than beige in some lights. I wonder if anyone would be brave enough to have the watch relumed with a standard green lume (I refuse to use the term "fauxtina" - it's just a colour they've chosen to go with the watch :))

    Must be why I liked it....

    Which is clearly meant to mimick aged lume thus 'fauxtina' it is.

    Exactly what I meant. No offense, but it's dial pics like those that make the watch look a little plain for my taste. OTOH, shots that show the depth of Silver and the starburst affect are the ones that make me lust for this watch. But this differing look and not being a panda is why I haven't pulled the trigger.

    Interested to hear your views on the WMT watches Aquagraph. Does the artificial aging of the dial, bezel and rest of the watch, make the aged lume more acceptable? Or are they a complete abomination? Personally, I can kind of see the appeal if you can't afford the genuine article.

    To be honest I don't get why people like 'aged' lume be it faux or genuine. I'd much prefer my lume to stay exactly the way it was when it left the factory... and while the CBK221B isn't my cup of tea, one of the things that puts me off even more is that odd pinky orange lume. It doesn't really look convincingly like 'aged' lume to me, which means it's just a random odd colour. I'd prefer if it was 'genuine' orange, or better yet white with an orange second hand.
    That WMT looks more convincing to me, but I'd just rather it was properly black with white/green superluminova. I don't get the 'beauty' of faded bezels either, what's so great about a bezel that looks knackered or a dial that should be black and now is browny red? Seems like a case of the Emperor's new clothes to me... fuelled by rarity and silly prices.

    Apologies to you and Jim.

    It doesn't always look pink-ish on the CBK221B, just in some lights/photos. Although I'd also prefer normal lume, I do concede that it brings some much needed warmth to the watch, otherwise it would be quite stark and sterile. And I think that's why peole like aging on a watch. Warmth. Softness. Character. And sometimes the colours things turn can actually look really nice. I loved the cream lume and muted blue bezel on my, now departed, Tudor Sub...they were the best bits about it

    The 'fauxtina' business usually bothers me a lot but on the Ice King I think it is so suddle it doesnt bother me.

    For sure, but not as much as I miss the Tudor Big Block.

    I don't mind if it's a bit creamy like on your Tudor, but this salmony-peachy-orange business.... not for me. I get what you're saying about the dial could like a bit sterile, and that's probably why I don't generally get excited about silver dials.

    It's an interesting idea to only have watches with blue on them....
