Stunning in the flesh, and they have several other excellent models. No idea why they don't sell better really, other than the fact that they are nudging into the big boy territory at the RRP.

Junk mail, Rolex style via Goldsmiths.
Hardback cover, first thoughts are that must cost a fortune, second thought - well they do make 35% on each watch!

Expecting this 43 Aquis to arrive tomorrow to go alongside my two 46mm models.
Just thought it was a bit different and hopefully a bargain!

Happy (and a little sad) to report that this is no longer on my wish list. I tried the 3 hander on my wrist yesterday - and found it fairly underwhelming. There is also something about the bracelet, which (probably an optical illusion) appears asymmetric, shown in this internet pic...

Too much metal around the dial IMO, which is a shame as it looked lovely in previous photos.

I love this and the standard black dial but the height of 16.4mm makes it a bit too thick for me. Going shopping tomorrow so will see if there's either in an AD to try on just to make sure.

WF have 1 of these in at less than RRP. (?)

I think it’s the Maltese cross in the bracelet. When the light catches the edges, it causes the bracelet to appear “twisted” on the wrist. The effect is most obvious on the 6 o’clock side in the wrist shot above.

Yep, I saw that effect in the photo and agree with you about the look of a twist in the bracelet.

^^^^^ Not a brand I had heard of Guy.

Looks a bit like a Breguet type XX or XXI.
