Lume and drilled lugs? Any other changes? How much are they charging for that groundbreaking work?

They've altered the dial text - added 'Submariner' on the second line. I'm surprised they did not do this line in red, but perhaps they will for an extra $1,000

Yuck. I don't want to know what they used to get the hands and markers that color, but it looks like something very unhygienic.

Color should have been egg-shell. And domed crystal.

Don't think so. They are going with the 1st edition of Sea Dweller from 1967!

I think it looks interesting Lee

I've always been a big fan of lug holes and no gold surrounds. Maybe next years SD43 release

Sure - I was just referring to their 'charge a fortune for every little thing' policy
Which is probably fair enough, given their clientele.
