Coincidentally got my BB58 today too. My very first Swiss watch.

nice... how much ?
I opted for both bracelet and leather strap options back in June. Was 515 Euros which is about SGD$800+. Now it's 835 Euros (SGD$1,325). Talk about a super increase in price..

Yes this is the Sport model. https://www.ecandersson.com/product/calypso-sport/

I think it looks way better than the Premium blue dial version imo. Simpler, more elegant hands (don't fancy the arrow handset on the Premium at all), and a multi-dimensional textured dial compared to the blue. The only thing the Premium model has going for it is the exhibition pigu. But hey, the rack in front is way more important.

Maybe not a Sub but you can consider a SeaDweller 16600/116600 in the future . They are different enough.

Oh yes how could I forget the Explorer! Itís my favourite actually. But 36mm is the way to go for an Exp in my opinion!

Looking good!

Wondering if the look would be significantly different with silver text on the bezel instead (like the larger version).

I suspect if you give it a year or so, prices will come down a little. Hard to say at this point though..
