Thanks - that's nice to know.... As for the difference - you can see this thread HERE that discusses it... There is some debate too that the C version has a slightly better / longer power reserve. I don't know if that is true or not... and I am not even sure if the 24 vs 23 jewels is true either.. For the most part... all I truly hope is that my SARB017 will arrive in one piece, will run just fine, and look every bit as good as the pictures of that sweet green dial I have seen so often. It has got to be, in my opinion, one of the best looking watches I have ever seen.
Heck - even when I looked at that picture above with the SARB017 and the Rolex.. I thought to myself... hell yeah I would like that Rolex! Why? Well... cause it's a ROLEX! They are great watches... but in all honesty... That Sarb looks better! ;)
