    Not sure about the mix of gold and silver hands. Me think it would have been a lot better without the Greek dude on the front. Nice case back though .

    Pics appear to be gold for the hour/minutes and white for the chrono counters save for the Apollo emblazoned seconds counter...which I think is gold

    This appears to work (to my eye anyway)...hence the reason for reserving one!

    If you like it then that it what matters. It is growing on me slowly but I would have to see one in the flesh

    Thanks for the pics! The blue is really nice and dark in the real life shots so far.

    How is the caseback different from the brochure though?

    Brochure has the astronauts names on the case back and the pic has "a tribute to Gene Cernan"

    Concur...based on the pics so far it seems like the dial has characteristics similar to the Rolex hulk, which looks very different depending on the amount of light available and the angle at which you view the watch.
