    The Alpina Worldtimer was on my short list until the updated FC Worldtimer debuted at Basel. Also Oris has one under $5K but is certainly not "classic" in any sense. :)

    I've spent my money on women, whisky and watches. The rest I just wasted.

    FC-718WM4H4 : RGP brown leather world map

    This one is 1888 limited as well. I just got one and it came with the LE certificate.

All of which look very similar (different strap colours, minor dial variations, etc) but not all are Limited Editions. I wish this wasnt the case as it makes the actual LE versions less "rare" (at first glance) but in general, I feel LE's are more of a marketing gimmick anyway.

    So on to what I've discovered. Now take this with a grain of salt as none of this has been verified by FC.
    My understanding is that only the versions with Moscow on the dial are part of the Limited Edition run. This is regardless of strap colour or style. There is a version, much to my amusement, with Canadian cities in place of the US cities on the LE. Being from Toronto, I would have totally bought this version but sadly, i only found out about it after i purchased my US cities version.

    Regarding the model number on the case, it definitely wont be too specific as FC uses the same case on several models. But the LE versions will have the number engraved just after the 1888 pieces on the caseback. Here is mine, #1738:


    Hope this helps!

    Love the Canadian cities on there!

    Why are there lume dots on the dial but no lume on the hands?

    I had the same question about the design too, but at the same time, it's more of a dress watch, so I kinda just stopped caring about the lume.

    It's a great watch overall, simple to read and fits my needs.

    That is a really good question about the lume dots...

    It's nice to see Canadian cities on there.

    They have brought out a new one with brown dial, rose gold case and brown leather strap, looks gorgeous~ but not Canadian cities though.
