Very nice ;)
Can i post pictures through my iPhone?
How do you like the ceramic bezel?
I bought the one with the rubber bezel (2009 version) a month ago because i preferred its more chunky look..
Have any problems come up with yours?

Very nice. Tough and solid. I'm still wondering why have TAG dropped the sapphire caseback for the new 500m ceramic. But this only makes the 2009-2011 model even more attractive! ;-)

I was wondering about the same thing
Actually the absense of an open case back from the new model made me choose the 2009-2011 one

Interesting! I agree that sapphire caseback sometimes does really become the deal-breaker.

Apart from movement (mechanical vs quartz), usually size of the watch is the deal-breaker for me. Though I'm also liking the 2009-2011 model, the size is just a little on the large side for me.

It's because of different preferences we buyers have that have made the market flooded with variety of watches, which all together makes the watch environment very Colorful...!

Very eager to see more members into this AR 500M club, regardless of model year. Let's flood this thread with pictures! :-!

You are absolutely right about the wide variety of watches offered in the market ;)
Yes lets flood it with pictures :p
I see that you have a rubber strap on your watch.. Do you like it? I was thinking of buying one for mine as well. Do you think it is worth it?

Yes absolutely loving the OEM strap! I have a thread on my new AR. Actually i bought in bracelet, and at the same purchase bundled in the OEM strap + clasp. I'm very much (if not obsess) a strap/clasp guy and bracelet is just for nicer occasion.

IMHO, TAG is the only watch company that engineer (if I may say) the best rubber strap that fits so nicely to the dedicated watch. The design, material, fit and finish of the rubber strap is just top notch. Deployant clasp is also another work of delicate engineering - seamless enclosure. These live up to their standing as leader in luxury sports watch.

So if I like it or worth it? I'd say go for it man :D

Haha you answered my second question as well :p
Well I will probably by one then ;)
I really like the OEM strap of the 2009 edition because of the metal parts in the two ends that "touch" the case of the watch

if the new ceramic model was at least 43mm and had the transparent caseback i would buy one in a heartbeat, otherwise i still love my original 500M very much.
