Cool concept but not a fan of white straps.

Also I associate white straps with G-Shocks and cheap fashion watches. I am sure it is a high quality strap but yes dirt will show up more.

I got a quick glance at it. I believe it's a boutique only piece.

Is 'Stormtrooper' an official name or a nickname? If the former it's exceptionally crass given the term's history.

I genuinely like the look of Emergencies but I am not sure about the white strap. Now I understand it wouldn't be a storm trooper if it were configured any differently but that white strap would be pretty tough to keep it looking decent? Not a bad concept I guess.

Ewwwww. Still can't get past the E2's styling, but the white model and the 'storm trooper' nickname, even if intended to reference star wars, are both terrible

Just purchased this watch today. Must say it is absolutely stunning in person. I normally abhor white straps but this watch is gorgeous, I had to have it.

It is indeed a "boutique edition." The sales woman told me only 100 produced worldwide, mine is no. 10/100... Anyone know if this thing will see any appreciationappreciation in value? In the end not a big deal for me because I don't see myself getting rid of it, but was just curious.

I like it. Personally, I wouldn't hesitate to get the orange strap version from the website. I'd love to see photos, to see how it wears.
Cheers.

Doubtful, limited edition rarely fetch better prices than standard models in the used market but you never know. Enjoy your watch.

This is a badass piece, I agree it's not for everyone but I for one love the white and black combo, plus you can always throw it on any strap.
