I'll disagree with TK ....
I think this is a design step in the right direction. Love the bezel, and the dial. I'm not sure about the hands, but I SURE like them better than the ones on the previous edition.
Well actually only the top portion of the case was polished, and the sides were brushed. I prefer a totally brushed case, or bead blasted case myself, but I am fine with what I have. The back is polished, and the signed portion of the crown is polished.

If I remember correctly, the average pressure to relieve the watch case is 3atm over ambient pressure differential... In other words, the internal pressure has to be equal to roughly 3atm of pressure (deeper) than the pressure outside the watch case to activate the automatic He valve and decompress the case.
