Thanks for the picture, yours definitely looks whiter in the center than the light blue in the product photo.

Overall, your pics remind me of Omega’s summer blue and I think I like how yours looks more than the store photos.

The colourway is still beautiful, but too light for my taste, and the lowered legibility of words caused by the dial really puts me off :/

When will we get a dark red dial on the Twelve with 36mm 🥲 will definitely pull the trigger immediately if that happens

We have same wrist size, so thank you very much for your help!! I also agree on 36mm

I’ve been hoping for that color for a while (here’s my mockup of a 40mm, but also it’s a pretty bright red)

I’ve since filled up my collection with other red watches so I don’t know if that’s the twelve color for me anymore

Interesting... Now seeing the colour being mocked up it doesn't give me the hype I hoped for. Maybe I am after an H Moser after all lol

That Purple in Stainless looks beautiful!!! I have the 40mm silver color, but I might need to get a second one.

My only real complaint about the 12 is that you can't get a COSC movement with a plain face. It's fumé COSC or plain non-COSC. A bit like the Dune or Sealander COSC movements (except, I think, the Sandhurst if that counts) being in only Ti or brass.

I don't mind paying extra for the COSC, but I would love to be able to do so in the same steel case as the non-COSCs.

I love some of the new colours. Seriously thinking of selling my Glacier Blue to get one of the other models. I love the watch, but sometimes I wish the blue was a bit stronger. It feels a bit washed out sometimes.
