Funny you should say that.
Is that a slight hint that they are bringing a version of that back?
That would be awesome.

The Arktis is nice but this is how blue should be done.

I've never seen the blue 103 in person, but I'd certainly like to. Is the 103 blue electroplated ?
The Arktis dial is hard to beat, one you need to see in person to fully appreciate.

Does anyone here have the blue 103 and the Arktis ? I would like to hear your opinion on how different they are.

There is a thread at the other forum with side by side pictures of both of them.

Love the Arktis dial, but I think a shiny sunburst dial would be a mistake on the U1. It does not fit the nature of the watch.

Thanks, those pics of both are exactly what I wanted.
It confirmed what I thought about them, the Arktis is more of a shiny, shimmery blue while the 103 is deeper with grey hues. Both nice but both different, so both could be in a collection.
There is a cheap blue 103 for sale right now. It's cheap because a few marks on the watch case and the leather strap has an extra hole punched in it. Very tempting.
