    Does borealis accommodate custom orders like getting a white dial with black bezel? Some microbrands do (Elshan at Zelos comes to mind).

    I had no interest in this model before but WUS has done its job. I just haven't found the "right for me" combo of dial/bezel and id rather not swap then myself.

    I know someone that ordered the white dial and the black one so they will swap the bezels out before shipping. But no, I tried and they won't do custom orders. The factory requires a ridiculous number of extra bezels ordered to do it.

    I went to work last and slept with the black bezel on the white dial.



    So if you order both, it'll be super easy to sell the black dial with "ghost" bezel and not lose a penny.



    I used a Bergeon tool but I've heard there are other more affordable options.

    ^ Thanks but financially speaking id not want to buy 2. Not because I don't think I can sell one of them but because I know I'll find a reason to keep both.

    I'm sure I'm not the only one but the blue dial is giving me an oris 65 vibe.

    That blue though.....I'm seriously being tempted. My wife wanted to get me a watch for Valentines day and this may be the one.

    Just switched to cathedral hands, I think they seem to suit the markers better and I find them more unique than the pencil hands.

    I too switched my preference to the Cathedral hands after handling both styles with the brown and blue proto. Clearly there isn't a bad choice, and the traditional and boring me likes the pencil hands :) but they look like that of my Oris. Also seeing the cathedral hands, I realized quickly that their shape and the quircky hour hand better balance and match the oversized hour markers. Somehow it is more cohesive overall and it's fun, different from that I have. So that's why I lean to them now.
