Thanks for posting the pics Thomas.

That DLC SOC (superficially at least) looks very tactical, but (as usual) rubber bezels with no pearl, and DLC don't do it for me at all. If they'd gone with a ceramic case and bezel, plus a bezel pearl to be a true diver, then they might've been on to something.....

The DLC 6.75 is discussed in another thread, and personally I think it looks hideous.

That TOC 38 looks quite nice and vaguely interesting with the gold bezel (although I'd like to see it in the flesh). But either way, the tiny size and lack of an in-house movement would preclude me from considering it anyway.

I hope Baselworld has a few nicer surprises for us.

I can't help thinking that the SOC would have looked good about 5 years ago. Now, so many companies have done the 'all black' look in much more innovative ways this looks (literally) like an Invicta. The 6.75 is truly awful and the TO is pleasant without being particularly interesting (to me). Here's hoping things improve.

I like the TO. The Bentley is just too Bentley. The SOC is really weak looking to me. I'm with Roff - I've seen Casios that look better.

I agree, I love the blacksteel but has become overplayed lately.

Thx mate! Unfortunately importing the watch from overseas and pay the 27% hungarian VAT would drive the price too high for me :(
Anyway, I've already seen the black dial version, the BEB dial is still to be seen.
