I was considering the exact same thing when it popped up on the sale page. But the more I looked at it the less I think it will work with the Atoll. Unless the blue dial is VERY close to the blue on the strap I don't think it will look right. And the orange line throws it off IMO.

The blue tide strap might work better I'm thinking. The light blue center stripe looks like it will work well with the dial. But I'm going to hold off on any strap purchases until I get a good look at this watch in the metal.

This is the strap I'm talking about

Look forward to this combination as well :-)

Ugh—I remember getting the email while I was on vacation and thinking: meh, I’ll think about it. Maybe I can find a Tudor Pro (I was in Rome at the time). What a fool! The Atoll SE was a steal. Oh—and no Tudor Black Bay Pro…or GMT…or BB58…or Omega AT in the new colours. I came back empty handed, though with the airline fiasco I’m grateful to have made it back at all!!

Initial thoughts?
So far so good, no issues that I can see like Ryan has.

Definitely more a shorts and t-shirt wear than shirt and jacket :lol:

Gorgeous dial, and bit of a shame there's no lume on the bezel like the sapphire but happy all the same :thumbup:
So there is lume on the bezel markers :shock:

It wasn't clear from the online pictures. They even missed the Lumed triangle off their official image. Although it wasn't in the darkest area, it would have had some glow if it was a real complete image.

I think this is why the watches often look much different in person.

You sure that's not just the regular markers reflecting on the underside of rhe crystal?

I see lume from noon to 15 minutes. It’s faint but I see it. And it’s definitely not some reflection off the crystal.

At least it shipped. Hopefully you’ll get it soon. It’s just weird mine didn’t even leave CW yet. Two other watches I purchased after the Atoll are already on the way.
