    I think there have been a few people who’ve modded to acrylic.

    You being the spearhead for it :) … I think the last I remember seeing was that you acquired a gilt Everest. Have you plans to mod it if so?

    I sold the gilt dial to a member here a few weeks after I got it (unmodded). The gilt dial was a lovely thing, but I think I preferred the tool watch look of the standard dial.

    I haven’t seen the gilt in person but from seeing photos I think I would agree.

    Hey guys, on the black dial, are you guys liking the white lettering more or the older ghost black lettering?

    Ghost lettering for me, I like that you can’t really see it but then suddenly it appears in the right light.

    All models look great to me, I’d be happy with any. The MK1 lettering also has its charm but in terms of what I’d choose if I could decide, it would be with the white lettering. The ghost black is nice but always felt the white lettering would add more symmetry and it does do that for me. Plus it’s one less shade of black on the dial and I prefer that.

    yeah you guys are right, all versions look good! Days I like the ghost, days I want more symmetry then I feel the white font is distracting....im just all over the place. But end of day all look good. I was going to see my new in box ghost version but maybe ill keep it?

    Yes I’d just enjoy the one you own, you weren’t sure about keeping it though if I remember rightly. Have you been wearing it much or still wearing the Zeno? The white text will probably make the dial feel a little fuller than the ghost text but I guess it depends how important the symmetry is. The ghost text dial is still very symmetrical though. As I said, both great imo

    Yeah I have the Zeno and its great, love the look of it. I bought the Smiths but never wore it.....now im back to itching for a new Explorer but dont want to justify the cost....and now thinking, I have the smiths, just use that. Like I said, some days the ghost looks better, then other days the white looks better, Im so indecisive :) And as much as I want the Explorer, its a bit too blingy for me, wish they had a 1016 style dial which is why I really love the Zeno and Smiths. The only thing I dont like about the zeno is the thickness. Its a bit chunky at 14.5mm vs 11.4 of the Smiths. I already have too many watches, and thats part of the problem too :)

    Edit: Do think the font on white lettering should change just a little, its a bit 'bold'

    I get you with being indecisive. Hum I don’t think it looks too bold. Maybe you’d like something slightly different. The new tropical dial commando maybe? Then you could just keep the Zeno and sell your Everest. Choices choices

    Looks great Mario. Have you found a jubilee for it by any chance?
