Go for it Neil, one of the best watches I've ever owned. Lume is amazing, case and crystal quality are superb:

Thanks Pete if I sell my Nomos club I'll give it some serious consideration. Also going to keep my eye out for a used one as new they are a bit steep

A delayed flight and well stocked IWC AD at copenhagen airport confirmed for me that if I have an attainable "grail" this is probably it:

Sure it could do with a mm loss on depth and diameter but other than that it is just awesome.

In the meantime I may pull the trigger on something like this soon to scratch a blue and dive watch itch in a very cost effective way.

You do seem to gravitate back to this time after time Richard.

Also tried this on at the airport! The white one also, couldnt decide between them to be honest. I really love the bezel on them, feels amazing, very wearable as well, typical IWC build quality.

High chance of this being ordered in next 24 hours. Thoughts?

I tried one on at H Samuels last week, it is properly heavy. Like a ton weight.
I miss all the great things that may never be.

I really like the look of it. Was worried about the weight and Damncematt may have swayed me off it.

I have the PADI and I find it really comfortable on the wrist! I don't find it heavy at all. When I was trying it on before purchase, the weight of the watch wasn't even something that I gave a thought to. I certainly have heavier. I had some initial problems with mine and there are different rules for consumers over here, so it went back to Seiko to fix and now it's running fine. It seems a very solid, sound sort of watch really. After all, this particular case design has been around a long time.

Just ordered the PADI, just could not find a better value blue diver for around £300 which is all I wanted to spend. If it is no good when I get it I can always take it into an H.Samuel for a refund.

Came so close to getting one, until I saw the red bezel in the flesh, and that killed it for me.
