To my eye the C60 also has the cleanest dial, timeless dive watch design, most durable with ceramic bezel and finally with that quick release bracelet rea...

Re: New arrival today

Sincere congratulations Patrick on your SMP! The white dial is striking and I quite like it on the OEM rubber strap. I'll PM you a link to Aaron Bespoke and perhaps a custom created, fitted end, non-rubber strap could be in your future!!
