The blue-gray dial looks nice, but it would be a million times better without the date.

I may order an orange one. The date is the only thing stopping me

I really like the hands but it's not enough for me to jump.

Great offering with very good specs and mvt for the price, Lower than prior release with lower specs.
I may be in for the blue dial

From the rendering it looks like it's not even centered between the 4/5 hour markers.

Those are neat Terry !!! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: Liking that blue gray also ! Looks muted, and very different.
Although the orange is terrific too ! Even the specs seem impressive all the way around.

P.S. Liking that cool green, and stealthy black too to be honest. :grin: Thanks so much Terry !

This x100. All those options and no no date? Too bad.

If you look at past Ravens, the no-date always sells out first.

Yeah he said the eta 2824 is meant to be used with the date wheel and will only do date versions. It was the first thing I asked on the Facebook page. A no date would be great., unless they can move the date to the 6 or 3.

Seems like it to us indeed but in talking to a few brands, seems Date is the best seller
