Well, I honestly have to say, I think it's worth it if you want the Brown OEM and clasp. I love the contrast with the opaline dial, it really looks top notch. IMO it's the best dial to go with a strap, especially the brown one, as it really brings out the dial so it would be a shame to deny it the right to pop like it will on the strap :D

I researched what watch to I wanted for about 2 years and in the end I just couldn't find one I liked more than this AT with the brown strap. I didn't even think I'd buy the bracelet at all but the more I looked pics like yours, the more I realized both were a must.

In short your doing the right thing buddy :)
Agreed. I'm pleased I have the options, or will have Saturday at least. The dark brown looks amazing with this dial.
2 years! That's some research period. And some patience. :)

Finally I can see this thread on my phone but on my MacBook no joy. Bloody strange!! Anyways... Superb shots as always Chris. Really stunning. Finally someone has managed to capture the beauty of the opaline. I don't doubt that you will get much more artistic in the coming weeks and I for one look forward to seeing the fruits of your hard work.
Cheers Dan! I have to think of something other than soaking this one though.
It's a real bugger to photograph and I don't think I've caught it right yet. Will have fun trying tho. :)

I came across this nice review based on an Aqua Terra tested in the Sahara Desert way back in 2002. I didn't feel like starting a new thread, so thought I'd post it here. It's a nice testament to the versatility of the Aqua Terra as well as the stability of the co-ax movement:

Oh, and since this is a photo thread, let me also link this picture from the review itself:

Took me so long because I'd sold my Date Just 3 years previously and had decided I'd not buy another watch until I could get something as good as, or better. So I just spent the time researching until I was in a position to replace it.

Love the bracelet and the look. I am awaiting mine (4-6 weeks). Not a fan of the brown leather strap it came with.
Glad to see someone thinks like me!
Enjoy in good health!

I think this is the missing shot from another thread.

Yep, it's at the AD waiting for me. Will be picking it up a week on Saturday. Really looking forward to getting it actually. They also polished up my watch for free when I went in last weekend to pay the deposit. Did a fine job! Did you get your brown strap yet?

Nice one. I already have a few scuffs but have learned to relax about it these days.

Strap should be here soon. Just waiting on the non cracked version. No rush. Love the bracelet!!

Yea the scuffs are inevitable. It's the 1st one or 2 that hurt the most and then you get over it. I actually just asked them to get rid of one particular scuff I did at Christmas, on the polished part of the lug, that looked like a dull patch, and it came back completely polished. I wasn't bothered about the rest at all but it's nice to have it like new again in time for the bracelet. Even though, I have scratched it again since :)

Cool. It's your photos that really made me want the bracelet more than ever, so I can't wait to get it!
