    It's also the same case and box crystal they use on their 130 Pilot Heritage Chronograph models.

    They're really beautiful watches too. So was I imagining it with the KM710, or does the box crystal for these models sit higher than other watches?

    It does sit up high. I personally love it. It gives a really nice distortion towards the outer edge of the dial.

    Absolutely. It really accentuates the edge distortion. I noticed it too.

    And it's a pretty flamboyant statement having all that crystal sitting above the case.

    I think the white/silver dial Heritage Diver looks really sharp. Did notice however, that there does not appear to be any lume interlaced with dial markers. If indeed the case, would not make sense to make a dive watch rated to 300m and not lume dial. Maybe internal rotating bezel markers are lumed?

    Is the bezel steel or aluminum?

    May I know the name of the AD and city please? Thanks.

Don't get me wrong, the date subdial's a nice touch and unique, but I agree that a traditional small seconds subdial would have been nice.

    But that's me. Freakishly small details like that can really bug me sometimes.

    Not sure what discount the AD here would be offering. It's the only one in the city (country?) selling Alpina as far as I know. Even buying grey market would make flipping it a lot more risky since the brand's not too visible here. I expect used Alpina prices here to require taking a fairly painful bath.

    It's the 8th Avenue Watch Company in The Emporium, Melbourne.

    I was in there earlier today, the KM710 was still there.

    The new GMT dial is too busy, the added scales in white and red? What am I supposed to "believe observe transmit"? Does Ice Legacy mean it's for frost giants?

    Obviously someone thought more is better.

    Glad I got the old version...
