I had a chance over the weekend to take a look at the Blue dial Midnattssol. I have to say, the blue sunburst brushed dial is mesmerizing. The way the vivid blue satin brushed surface catches the light is beautiful.

Here's a few more pics of the Blue dial version....

Here's a couple of wrist shots in different lighting conditions:

The direct light on the dial brings out a very vivid blue color

A more subtle lighting creates a deeper/darker blue color

It seems like the lume color on the hands and the dial don't match. Is that the way it looks in person?

good catch ... didnt notice this in the bottom pics but its more apparent in the top one. I'll have to go back and see what the pics of the orange dial look like. Will ping Todd to see what he says ...

My delivery roll out began on Wednesday. It will take me 10-14 days to ship out all watches and I will send a confirmation email to each owner once their watch has been posted.

My Blue no Date Mid arrived yesterday (Friday) afternoon. It is a gorgeous blue! And I really like the Nato strap.... very nice quality webbing weave, heavy duty and nice satin finished hardware.

The bezel action is smooth with a nice positive feel. Oh and did I say beautiful blue! A great summer watch at an affordable price.

Here's a quick cell pic I snapped Friday night while I was on the back deck grilling.

Love my orange Midnattssol 🧡 Perfect for the summer. What a bargain Image
The quality is good and love the orange dial. I did think the sunburst blue was outstanding on the proto and probably looks like a nicer watch but the orange has the right tone for me and I needed an orange watch on the rotation. So That’s why on the end I went with it. Todd also did a fine job integrating the date even keeping a lumed marker so I went with date after initially preferring ND
The Watch had a great size and wears great. All lines up and both crown/bezel operate flawlessly.
I am super happy with it.
