I thought I’d share more pics of the new orange Midnattssol after I put it on my old singlepass canvas strap. Love this combo and I can even take it in the water.
These pics are unaltered basic cell
Shots and i tried to take different angles on the wrist in different light. A few are under my front porch, one under a tree giving a cool effect and others in direct sunlight which made it hard to photograph as it’s super bright and mega hot today :) at 102.
I’ll take pics make it more glamorous Image

I gotta say it sits very well on the wrist, flat and comfortable. With the new crystal it’s thinner than the OG Baltic Shield and it makes a big difference in wearability and overall proportions to me. It’s not long so no worries about overhang even on smaller wrists.
For reference my wrist is 6.8”

Are you sure you ordered a Blue no date version? I haven't shipped any of those out yet, other than DEMO Dave's. Perhaps I have your order incorrect in my master file. :scratch:

I have to ask again because it's pretty apparent in the last few photos posted - this one in particular - is the lume on the hands a different color than the lume on the indices?

You didn’t see the post immediately above yours?

To clarify, I was kidding.

But, I did order a blue no date. Image

Yes, ever so slight but enough to contrast the markets a bit.

I have actually never noticed it in person. I've spent a lot of time photographing the Mid and wearing it this past weekend and did not notice a difference in hand / dial lume color. I think the photos enhance the effect due to the lume glowing in the shadow of the depth of the dial in some pics.

Another couple pics of the Blue Mid. One of the nicest blue hues I've seen with a sunray brushed finish. IMO it works really well with the SS bezel and gray NATO strap. I really like the gray outline of the hour markers and hands too.

I had not noticed on mine either to be honest.

Indeed. The blue is fine. I'm waiting for orange no date.

Nothing better than waking up on a Sunday morning to finding out my first International shipment had landed and I have a happy customer!

Hi Todd,
Received my blue dial watch yesterday.

It is fantastic.
Don’t know what you have done but this is by far one of the best dials I have come across!
Execution of the case, bezel, lume, all excellent.

Well done!

Keep me posted on all your new creations.
