Sorry for resurrect this thread but the "2nd" version of the glidelock only apply to the steel model right?

Im looking at my new SubC 116613 now and it seem while the 2nd Picture seem to match my glidelock. However the 1st Picture my SubC glidelock seem to be of the "1st" version glidelock, I Think it has something to do with the fact that its a twotone glidelock.

Anyone with the new SubC 116613 can confirm?

EDIT: nevermind, found my answer here on the 5th post from Duey:
Submariner 116613 "Flat"

First serial "V" 116610V Hulk

Is the "easylink" the same as "easylock" that I've never heard before?

So is there only 1 generation of glide lock on the DSSD? No re-engineering on the DSSD?
