Interesting, so a day / date complication on top of the in house movement I assume.

Blue Sky sounds like just another excuse for an LE as they introduce a new colour dial.

Good info, Thomas! :thumbsup: The Transocean Daydate sounds like the Headwind configuration. This could be very nice indeed...... although I remembering thinking the TO Unitime would be nice too! :lol:

Navitimer Blue Sky - sounds like a blue Navitimer to me! Any word on the movement? B01?

The last one I assume is a Chronomat? Again sounds like the usual "cheap to make" LEs - i.e. just a change of colour. Might be nice enough, but can't imagine it'll be a game changer......

I read those last two lines as being together - i.e. Navitimer Blue Sky with B01, Blue index dial, etc

:lol: Ah, right! I was reading it on a reduced sized Window on my work PC, and having to scroll backwards and forwards I read it as three separate models! :oops:

Hmmmm, the TO Day Date isn't quite as nice looking as I hoped it would be.... but it's certainly not offensive in any way.

That said, I think the Navi Blue Sky is very nice indeed. I like the blue date wheel too (assuming it actually WILL be blue on the real watch).

Nothing objectionable there at all.

The TO Day / Date looks a little 'plain' in the mock ups, maybe if the dial had some subtle guilloche?

I like it too. Improved the TO. The size of the TO is still the one big objection for me. 43mm is just too big for that watch.

I agree about it looking plain. When I read what Thomas had to say, I was excited to hear about the TO since I've always liked the headwind, but this just seems like its missing something.

Yeah, like I said, it's not quite as nice as I was hoping for some reason....

Strange.

I like the TO but agree just missing something. The blue Navi would be really nice if it had contrasting subdials.
