Interesting. If they had made this with their titanium case and gave it applied indexes that might be enough to push me over the edge on this. Right now the painted indexes is why I haven't bonded with my SD38ti. Have they talked about if the bezel will be bi-directional or unidirectional and how many clicks it will be?

With applied indexes using a gmt model like this, they'd have to either have a 'bent up' hand to clear the indices a la Monta Skyquest (which seemed to be polarizing for some reason), or shortened and not quite reach the markers on the bezel.

Personally, I like the way this looks in that sort of classic way. Although I actually liked the way Monta handled their design and would like to see more like that. I hate shortened gmt hands.

Kinda wish they did one of these with their teal dial and a teal / orange split sapphire insert.
