Likes
- design
- nicely sized at 41mm and 47mm lug to lug and 12mm height
- good lume

Dislikes
- the 15' bezel tab still gets in the way of operating the crown like in previous models
- Cyclops
- stamped divers extension
- pin and collar bracelet
- dial seems a bit cluttered, lines, logos and text on flat surfaces, chapter ring on top. I would've preferred the text to be printed directly on the dial instead of a special flat surface, but would've been more difficult.
A very nice watch but not worth the retail. In my opinion the blue one is much nicer, but still with the same short comings

@Stevegch one of the reasons might be that they crept up in price yet they didn't improve many aspects of the watch to match, others have issues with the movements and plastic movement holder and value retention ( they depreciate HARD) . That being said I love the blue aqua racer and for the right price it's a beautiful watch.

@Stevegch from experience these ceramic aqua racers you can get for about 1100-1400 euros, some lower than that. The msrp new is 2300 Euros, but you might find it at some Ad's for 2000 Euros. The Carrera Chronographs are even worse offenders, new the CV201 is 3950 Euros msrp, you can get them used roughly for 1800-2200
