    Except the number Ď4í lol. I own one and have grown to appreciate its charm.

    That is great news Eddie. Kind of like finding that last piece of the puzzle. Will be looking forward to the final price and release for sale in the store.

    It will be a great watch, I have no doubt of that, just not to my taste.

    I love it because it confirms my conviction that the current iteration of the PRS-29 military is the only hand-wind three hand watch I want at any price.
    I too am not a fan of the polished bezel but as the Mk XI seemed to have one I guess it's part of the package.

    From the prototype photos it doesn't seem to be as obvious on the cream dial which could well persuade me to go for that. It would also sit well with my PRS29-AM
