    Just received my BB Steel... excellent rep, no flaws, very happy... wears well.
    Like the leather look... less formal.

      Looks good, the leather should balance out the hefty weight of the watch, glad there are no flaws.

        No problems... bezel is tight, good clicks, lume is good (not Seiko-great) but good. Satisfied!...
        Now I'll start checking time/accuracy... Timegraph showed +7 s/d.

          Lol there are hardly any reps, let alone gen watches that can match even the basic Seiko lume. My £60 seiko has better lume than my £1.7k Tag Heuer aquaracer.....

            Yep... Don't know what their secret is in their LumiBrite lume but it IS awesome... very few lumes come close!

              Any update on this? Thinking about getting one and was curious to know what your experience has been like so far.

              Someone also mentioned that the bracelet is not 'buttery soft'. I know we're dealing with reps here so I don't expect it to be truly 1:1. How would you rate the bracelet?

              Thanks!

                Also how is the date wheel? Is it off? Some of the pictures I've seen so far show it's pretty off. Thanks!

                  Have had the watch alittle over a month... very happy with the purchase, watch works great.
                  TimeGraph said it ran +7sec/day... has actually been running +4/day...
                  Bezel action is good, with very little 'play'...
                  Bracelet is very well made... however, I'm a leather-guy so switched it out immediately.
                  Date wheel is centered and dead-on, begins to turn about 5min before 12:00...
                  Only minor issue is the strength of the lume... its OK but definitely not Seiko-strong... holds overnight with no problem...
                  Again, very satisfied with the purchase... but sometimes it can be luck-of-the-draw.

                    Thanks I appreciate the quick answer!

                    How low is the lume? Could you by any chance share a picture? I think I'm going to order one.

                      It's a gorgeous watch; only concern I have with it is the likelihood of that bezel getting scratched up easily (the couple I've seen in the member sales section were scratched).

                        Regarding the lume... don't want to give the impression its a poor lume... just NOT a super-strong lume.
                        Pic taken after about 10sec under desk light... will weaken but usually lasts overnight.

                          Regrading the bezel... no scratches on mine... but I try to be careful.
                          Nice 'circular' brushed surface... don't wear it for any heavy-duty work... for me, a 'dress-diver.'

                            Mine on gen black NATO. It's been a great tool/daily watch.

                              IMO Black Perlon also gives it a good look...

                                The hour hand and second hand looks off
                                Is that how the Gen is? A different level of lume?
