A GMT with a chrono function would be awesome! I really hope its just a SS version in the 8k range, but thats doubtful.

I'm looking forward to this one but I have a sneaky feeling that they'll over-bling and over-size it, at least according to my humble tastes.

This new Beast of the Skies (the BoS) must surely be able to show additional time, speed and perhaps some moon phase action!!!

The rumors are true it appears, should be interesting to see the dial color since the bezel appears white

sweet!

Let me guess: a 40 mm GMT Master with a fixed white ceramic bezel and a differently shaped 24 hrs hand and we have the Skydweller.

oh yes!

a nice WHITE cerachrome bezel and milky white dial with SeaDweller.... hour indices black as the ace of spades...

then in 30 years the MK1 dials turn a nice cream-colour and I can sell at a huge profit and retire

Perhaps he's looking for an initial error-dial in small numbers so he too can retire early.
