Hi Carlos,

Yes, I came across these beauties on IG by chance, and have already mentioned about it in WUS !
They have already generated quite a bit of interest ...

A couple of questions, is the shade of Blue as in these renders, or darker, as in the original Estoril ?

Also, will you be making these bracelets available in future, to previous owners of the Estoril ?

Regards,

The blue on this version is totally different of the first version as well as lume used. Also we have an improved bezel system that can be removed from case.

Bracelets will be offered later on at store once watches are in stock.

Thanks for that info, Carlos !

Yes, that's great to know ...

I was aware of the new lume, the White Lume and Old Radium X1, but the bezel and new colour too sounds great !

After much hunting around for suitable bracelets for the earlier Estorils, it's good that these will be made available ...

Please ensure they can be sized for smaller wrists !!! :) :) :)

What type of clasp will these bracelets have ?

Thanks !

I'm ecstatic that the bracelet will be offered separately, the Watch Gecko oyster I have on my V1 is adequate but having proper fitted endlinks and it being Prez style will be awesome!

The bracelets may be offered also seperately, but are included in the pre order price of 430 USD (ex VAT) as i understand.

I love my Estoril, I went to great lengths to find a bracelet that would fit that watch, it's great that the new bracelet will be made for sale for people with the Mark 1 Estoril to purchase. Thank you Borealis!

Regarding the new bezel that can be removed from the case - do you think it will be possible to get the factory to make extra bezels during the next production run so we can buy replacements should something happened. Or perhaps buy an additional bezel as a spare at time of ordering?

Bezels are not interchangeable with V1
No, but I was wondering about for the new V2 model. Will it be possible to make additional ones during the production run so we have spares available for our new V2 Estorils? Or maybe if there was enough demand for this you might consider it, I'm sure some others here may be thinking a similar thing.

The new Estoril will look fantastic on the bracelet, here's my V1:

Carlos,
I realize it's probably late in the game with regard to your Facebook friends, but would you please consider dropping the DW logo from the dial, and replacing it with the original script "Estoril 300". IMHO, the association with the DW Facebook group and the LE status of the piece is adequately represented by the unique caseback, and the change would show more proper deference to the original classic.
Respectfully submitted,
Ed P.

Please Carlos make available for normal sale also the spare bezels, they can be really useful !

Thanks,

As for "super luminova white lume", it seems to be a new type of lume I'm not familiar with. Does it mean it will look white in the dark?

I understand that BGW9 look blue and C3 look green, in the dark. And longevity of BGW9 is better, though C3 is the brightest of all lumes initially. Can someone share his/her insight of this new "super luminova white lume"?

Thanks. :)
