This is the real deal for me - the design of case and the dial is something very special and something I have not seen in many other watch brands. The Case: The very sharp edges on the case makes this watch a "tough" watch to look at - it looks masculine. The look of the case is what really makes the watch - I would say that the look with a "leather" strap on this watch makes it look like a AP royal Oak off-shore. And the strap fixture is also what makes this watch a easy to spot watch. It is what can be seen from a distance - also a nice design feature but also a feature that WORKS very well. One of the best strap changing functions in any watch - It will keep you strap IN place on the watch all the time. Not like the simple "metal" bars seen in most watches (Rolex MilSub not in this league). The Lumen: The lume on the dial is very good - I have no seen the Rolex Deep Sea in real life with the lume - but the lume on the Linde Werdelin is very very good. And what I like is the lume on the rotating bezel - nice to have lume spots every 10 min on the bezel. The Dial: The dial is very glossy - and this together with the very good glass - makes the dial jump out. The dial is not that "big" when compared to the "big" case - see a side by side view of my Panerai 25C and my Elemental. And when checking the Panerai 25C and my rolex and Panerai 1B - The dial is small compared to the other dials. The dial is "about" the same size as a rolex dial - but with some extra writing on. This extra writing on the dial is very nice - just about the right amount - much more and the dial is not possible to read. The straps: The metal strap is now my daily strap - it feels heavy and is heavy but feels very good. No problem with the strap pulling out my hairs on my arms. The quality of the strap is very good - it feels solid and well done - but the work involved in removing links could be much better. The integration of the metal strap to the watch case is second to none - I really think this is a super design - and after getting use to the extra weight - the watch with the metal strap now sits like a "glove" on my hand. With the textile strap - I get a very nice look - it complements the watch very nicely - it almost looks like a AP Royal Oak Off-Shore.
