Also can you take a pic of the crown tube, is it stainless matching & maybe it's been noted, but I'm noticing the Pencil Hands Lume isn't matching to the indices, but seems to match w/ the Cathedral Hands better.

    Thanks, much appreciated,.. I'm thinking White Dial/Cathedral/Date..

    Edit: Never mind, I scrolled way back, watched videos, looked at pics, & it answered my questions.....Now I just gotta talk it over w/the voices in my head!

    Ordered the blue with cathedral hands, no date. I'm definitely putting this on a honey/oak/cognac leather strap. I've been wanting a blue sports watch and a ceramic bezel for a while now and this blue was just the right shade to go great with a leather strap. It certainly helps that the price is reasonable and it comes with the STP 1-11 (which I own in my Zodiac SSW) as well so I figured why not.

    Brice's pics on IG got me interested on this watch. I'm not normally into micro brands at all, but this one was just tempting me. Looks to be so well made and it's beautifully designed to boot. Very original look and not an homage to any one watch which I often find too many micro brands are.

    I also noticed that the pencil hands lume on the BGW9 is a different shade (unlit) than what you see on the indices. It doesn't bother me much, but I was curious about why. My guess is because the indices are set on a background?

    Its definitely noticeable, maybe it's cuz they're prototypes & have mixed hands..maybe it's been answered already, but It would be nice to know from Louis or Bryce they're thoughts on this. Is it just the pencil hands that look like the Lume is missed-matched?

    I asked Borealis about this and it's just because they are prototypes and about 90pct of the 100 we will receive.

    These are the lume shots I have of them (zero enhancements other than cropping)

    Absolutely ! I was at work today with a different watch and kept thinking about this NATO that was on my Anko so immediately switched it when I got home.

    Ok, so, I'm trying to order,
    ...Shipping question choice to USA, says Post Office is free and Fedex is free, what's the difference 35 days Post Office vs 8 days Fedex? Is there duties w/fedex? If so, approximately how much $ duties.

    Am I reading this correctly?...Free Fedex? A $45. Value!

    There is no free shipping. You pay the $10 or $45 with the final invoice.

    $10 shipping takes 7-9 days to arrive to me in California, USA. But has been known to take longer.

    $45 FedEx arrives in 3 days.

    I paid $16ish once to FedEx customs fees. Just one time though.
