    No (to answer your question), but I do like what they've done here with the subtle wave pattern on the dial, the hour/minute sectioned hands, the polished chamfer along the case edge. What annoys me the off-center date window. Again. It's like this on their other models as well, with the window not perfectly aligned between the 4/5 o'clock markers. I can't fathom a reason for this other than missing on the details (no reason to not put it 3 o'clock though). Likewise (at least on the black) the white date wheel. I'm having less tolerance for that.

    I understand the peeve but it really does not phase me at the price for all you get.

    The blue tubes are what I prefer on this model.

    I am considering adding this one as the tubes are great when out at night.

    Doesn't make me love my SEA RAM 500 auto any less (the skewed window), but those little details add up. The tubes are nicely done on this as well, and I think how they incorporated into the split hands is genius (don't know if I've seen that elsewhere). Were I to not already have the SR500 and with the special pricing I'd be strongly tempted.

    As to the post above about the size. It’s certainly not svelte, but DB’s cases wear smaller than the diameter alone suggests as the lug-to-lug is pretty moderate. Likewise the bezel is quite prominent which eases the impact of the dial somewhat. Actually, I’d suggest the Day/Night may wear a bit smaller still than the SEA RAM as the case edge is more refined with that polished ribbon, and the crown guards are smaller. The SEA RAM is more tool-oriented (design, not owner). The Day/Night bridges the gap a bit. I’m not helping myself here as I’m now thinking about this more.

    Re: **THE "OFFICIAL" DEEP BLUE WATCH CLUB THREAD**

    Hello to all, I'm new to owning a Deep Blue.
    I was looking to buy a Bulova then saw some pictures of a Deep Blue Master Explorer 3 1000 and had to have one.
    Came today and it looks better in the flesh than in the pictures.I sold a Brietling Hercules last year and this watch has more presence than that.
    I'm very impressed with the styling and build quality.A Cyclops eye was added before I got it but I think I may remove it.Any thoughts?
    Here's some pics of mine.
