I enjoyed this review. I’m very glad to have made the leap; I purchased this watch in January. Some of the points you raise I’ve discovered living with the watch. The design and style of the Sandstorm drew me in with its retro-futuristic touches, elements that harken to Art Deco and near futurism with the stainless and concentric rings of the dial and the case.

I love it! I have swapped the canvas strap for a black leather strap, much more comfortable after living with the canvas these two months. The canvas is still quite stiff. I may also try a tan leather strap to provide a different look. The quick release is appreciated.

I wonder why? I uploaded the image to the board, rather than link it externally. Not sure what I’ve done incorrectly, but it is my first post of a picture so I very likely did something that is not in line with how this should be done.

All fixed now for @thomcat00.

Looking at the file names you'd added the same photo twice as a Forum Board attachment, but placed the first one with IMG within square brackets. This is not needed for forum board photos (only third party hosted links).

Yep. I see it now. Thanks.

It’s a great watch. Really is. I’m tempted.

I'm so tempted but can only afford 1 watch this month. There are so many beautiful watches to choose from

I would be interested to have someone with the blackout edition of the Sandstorm add their impressions to the conversation. It wasn’t as interesting visually for me.
