What do you guys think? I owned the black SS variant a long time ago. In titanium this wears much more comfortable.

I love it and agree about the fit

This is my favorite version of a watch I love. While the standard steel watch has tempted me for a long while, this titanium 2017 addresses every reservation I had about the original 5015. Also, I think you wear it well. 1) Too much high polish? Switch to... 

Great info Tim

I was wondering what the difference between closed case back and this model was as far as movement is concerned! Definitely a silicone hair spring is better in my opinion!

I think you chose wisely

The blue is beautiful and titanium is definitely the way to go here

This has been my favorite summer watch

I particularly enjoy the brushed titanium case- feels toolish, yet the sapphire bezel and the quirky blue dial are true signs of a lux diver. Ken ...  

You swim with the sail cloth strap?

 
 By: ripper444 : August 31st, 2019-02:38
That’s was my only downside which is the strap is not waterproof.... or is it?

I’m in pure disbelief yet fully believe you!

One main reason I sold my previous FF was due to not being able to use the watch as a diver! How long does it take that strap to dry?

I promise you this is the only reason one should not sell a 5015

The strap needs no time to dry. It is always dry. It is actually made for the sea. And the best is..that there is no other diver that can compare to the lume of the FF underwater, or to the easiness of grabbing and turning the bezel, thanks to its shape a... 

I can only agree with this review

Thanks for going in depth with your experience. For me, the black dial is the colour for the standard FF, so blue dial is the preferred choice for ti- an unusual dial colour to match a modern material.

Thank you Kykw. I also think black is the color for FF's

But the blue is a very attractive and not flashy one, so I think one cannot go wrong, no matter the color. All the best, Alex

The sail cloth...

Is particularly durable and it actually gets better/softer the more you swim with it... It fades a bit but it is a joy to wear.. it is meant to be in the water I have enjoyed mine for more than 8 summers Cheers

My watch is 4 months old

The strap is comfortable. I will take it in the water at some point. It’s definitely “cracking” where the buckle fold is. I have until today to decide if I will keep the watch or take it back. The strap and the little hex screws are turning me off yet aga... 

I never experienced any cracks. Super weird. Ask them to change to another strap. That should be easy.

 
 By: agyzace : September 3rd, 2019-03:31
As for the hex screws exchange system, I received two for free when I bought the Blue stainless steel one and when I bought the Tribute to Aqua Lung. They are available for sure and they are super easy to use. All the best, Alex

You can return...

the watch after four months?? Wow....

Pre owned!

 
 By: ripper444 : September 3rd, 2019-10:27
I got to test it to see if I actually like it before committing to it!

Four months!

 
 By: FlyingSnoopy : September 3rd, 2019-10:48
quite generous! Bravo!

This would also be my favorite.

Improved wearing comfort and the brushed case are welcome improvements.

Owning 3 5015's, all in steel, I would be tempted to buy a fourth, in titanium

 
 By: agyzace : August 31st, 2019-01:35
Would I replace any of the steel ones for this? No. I think steel ages much better, I like the heft of steel, and finally I find the blue dial of the steel version way more magic/attractive. Having said all of that, the titanium blue (and black) are great... 

I didn’t want to start a new thread to ask a question

 
 By: ripper444 : September 2nd, 2019-10:23
Do you know where to buy the strap change kit that comes with the hex heys/stand and the rubber strap? I called a few boutiques and they had no idea what I was talking about.

I would get it from an official retailer or boutiques owned by the Swatch group.

 
 By: agyzace : September 3rd, 2019-03:28
Here in Switzerland, Boutique Tourbillon for example (eg in Lugano) is perfect for such requests. All the best, Alex

I also like the titanium version better and in blue.

This watch is amazing how it manages to have 45 mm diameter and yet still sit perfectly on my wrist of 17.5 cm.
