Daytona, thanks for the extra picture. Is the bezel edge gloss. Looks reflective in the picture...
It certainly seems to be the case. I'll break out the macro lens over the next couple of days for a more detailed photo session

Just found this forum and wanted to let everyone know I did an unboxing video on YouTube for this watch.



I will make a more detailed video once I've experienced the watch a bit longer.

Have any Abyss owners managed to get any lume output? Mine remains steadfastly unwilling to display the slightest hint of luminosity - I'm intrigued that lhlopez1 seems to get some sort of luminescence in the unboxing YouTube video above 🤔

The luminescence isn't too strong as it uses black Super-LumiNova to go with the stealth look. It takes a good amount of light to activate the lume.

First up soz for the wall of text but i really need some help see I'm thinking of buying the abyss but I'd prefer it on a bracelet I spoke to CW and they don't do 1 that fits, well I don't think they do the email I got wasn't much help tbh. Anyways i did some digging and came across watch gecko (will refer to as WG) I emailed them and they were really helpful and suggested this to me https://www.watchgecko.com/milanese-mesh-watch-strap

I really like the black one but I'm confused because in the email from WG they say the lug width of the abyss is 22mm and that this bracelet will work with it (notice they said work they didn't say anything about it fitting) but on the CW website it says lug to lug is 39.6mm is lug to lug not the same measurement as lug width are they 2 completely different things? googling it told me there both the distance between the lugs but it can't be because there's a huge difference between the 2 measurements and I think it's unlikely WG have mistook the strap width for the lug width. Finally can anyone who owns this watch tell me what size the spring bars are because that strap fits bars that are 1.8mm. CW don't mention anything about the bars in the specs :/

As you can probably guess I'm new to all this cheers, also did anyone else notice they removed the picture showing the lume on this watch? it showed it glowed blue and it looked really cool

Lug width is the distance between the holes in the lugs. 22mm. You will need a 22mm width strap & spring bars.

Lug-to-lug is the total length of the watch head (line through 12 & 6 including lugs). 49.3 mm.
