    You are right. If. you go back and look at the original bakelite inserts on the 6542,s they were dark red,almost a maroon and the blue wasn't the shiny bright blue of modern inserts. I believe that is why so many folks like the aged faded inserts on their older GMT's

    POR901,

    Thanks !
    That is a great comparison shot
    :-D

    The only problem is that I only put down one deposit ?! At the time my heart said "white dial", but your shot really proves that I will not be satisfied with only one option. So I will either need to start trawling the second-hand marketplace once a significant number have been delivered; or hope that Bill will agree to sell me a "spare" black dial

    Re: Project GMT: Design thread

    White dial for me, please, since my Kingston (way more than) satisfies my black dial with gilt need. Now, if only I can get my hands on a pre-order!

    And THIS is why I ordered two. One white-dialed with pepsi (sometimes called a Pam-Am Executive) one black-dialed coke with that dark blue and red bezel (known as a "Pussy Galore"). Me Lik-ee!!

    Wait... So since I am number two behind you in line, do you get two before I get my one? :what:

    Nope. I tried to cram a deposit check in Bill's hand back in April of 2011. He refused to take my check but promised I would be second behind cpotters who had already established his spot as #1.

    Re: Project GMT: Design thread

    I was just looking on the Project GMT page on the MKII site and I noticed that there is a bonus for pre-order Customers:

    Pre-order customers will receive spare bezel and aluminum inlay

    Thanks, Bill! I had not caught that in the discussion thread.
