The steel case is 42mm wide with a rippled texture on the side. It is polished on the formal side and brushed on the sporty side. You can see the crowns sticking out from all around it. One potential issues that exists is that it is perhaps hard to recall which crown adjusts which movement. The lugs look almost Bovet style and articulate to make them wrap about one's wrist no matter which way the watch is worn. The strap is cool being rubber on one side and alligator on the other.
I feel as though I'd prefer the sporty dial. The dials are attractive and look legible. I think that Korloff wants to make the watch unisex - and the mother-of-pearl-dialed "sophisticated" dial looks a bit too feminine for my tastes. That dial is available with and without diamonds. Overall Korloff was able to make the Voyageur Kalahari a unique and interesting watch. I think it will do well in the right markets. Just try not to wear it on your way to the Kalahari, else it might get snatched off your wrist. Prices start at $3,175 and Korloff says it will be part of a limited production.
