I started off really liking this watch, but the text misalignment puts me off. I also don't think the bracelet end links are a great match for the case, looks like two different styles clashing.

Thanks Guy. I'm looking for forum "real world" photos though.

Yes, received this morning on steel bracelet. So far....no problem with the dial if you don‘t worry too much. Still a great looking watch.

I pulled this image from the current issue of Loupe. I see what you mean, and have to say I agree, at least from this angle.

And what about the internal bezel ?

Is it really unidirectional and with clicks ?
How does it feel ?

Have any new owners taken the watch underwater yet, either swimming or diving?

Looking sharp! A bit of a shame with the text alignment. Hope they address it/sort it out. I could do without the display case back too. Great looks though.

Did CW actually admit the text was misaligned and that they are going to rectify it in subsequent batches of the watch?

It’s been mentioned in the other Super Compressor thread, reference to a thread on TZ-UK where someone has had a response.
