Perhaps that is why they only changed the rings on the SS model.

Would have to have both. :D
I don't think it is really coming, will probably have just 2 SS models as before.

Would love to be the first on here with the black dial - my AD says sooner rather than later but that could mean anything

At this rate, you should have it by 2117!

I honestly would not give up though, finding it on our classifieds within a few months shouldnt be a problem (price gouging might be a different story!)

Otherwise if you do not mind having an out of state AD shipping you one, you could call some random dealers throughout the country that may have a better spot than 200!

O.. That black Daytona ceramic on rubber strap .. the bezel looks aftermarket. You can tell by the bezel edge , it's more rounded/ flat edge .

We must be on the same forum, I asked if it was a mod or the new model (no response though)

Not a bad mod though, I think the bezel looks great for aftermarket and I would not mind doing this mod myself if I had a 116520.

I was supposed to be # 4 at my AD. They ended up getting a white and a black in and the first person chose black. My sales dude texted me and asked if I wanted the white. Responded in the affirmative and paid for it over the phone. Will have to wait for a month until my travel schedule gets me back to the US to pick it up, but it's a done deal!!!

Main question - to I have to wait until I take physical possession to join the Daytona '500 club?
