Well first ones are being prepared to be shipped so soon we’ll have some out there pics and vids. See what’s what and how things work.

Imo swish is good one. There are ton of prestige brands that are recogniseable wo any written text. Sure, it’s mainly automotive but still.

This watch hasn’t got a name or logo on its face but is easily recognisable. :lol:

It is? To me it's an anonymous looking square with a poorly protected crown, it's only because the pic is up close that I can see the screen is high resolution so can guess it's an expensive Apple or Samsung, without that it could just as easily be anyone's. Perhaps people who like such things know who patented the crown at 2 and that's what makes it recognisable?

I guess more people would recognise it than the Swish though.

Will a black version be released?

Post by rosstcorbett »

Hi everybody, I’m sorry if this has already been asked but has anybody heard anything about a black dial version being released?

Probably to early into the release to be asking such a question but that is something I would love to have.

You obviously went on to investigate after your initial post.

Is that news anywhere we can all view?

That doesn't seem to have any logo at all. I wouldn't have a clue what make it was. Could be Apple, but could be Garmin or TomTom, or anything else.

Late to this thread but I like the look of Aquataine series, especially the lumed sapphire bezel. IMO the swish only logo is an improvement. I understand the Christopher Ward logo was meant to be "disruptive" but I think the only thing it disrupted was sales. :-)
