    Default 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.

    Sorry Torrey.

    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.

    What I do prefer about the newer model is the screwed in back vs. the individual "port hole" type screwed on back that UN seems to be fond of also using and is used on the older Seastar.

    (wonder how much internal pressure they COULD take before they blow...?)

    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.

    Default I like the watch itself. I can live without the..

    ..."He Valve, Farty-pop Super!" labeling as well as the exhibition back on a plain jane 2824.
