    For sure that's a great combo. But I must say a weathered blue can is singing with it.

    I sure hope that luminous paint intensity discrepancy between the hands and indices is a preproduction issue and not so prominent in the production run. Every non-lume photo of the watch shows less depth of paint layers on the hands compared to the paint on each index. It's not a deal-breaker, but it does stick out to my eye and wonder if it will bug me too much in the long run.

    I have the white dial, no-date, pencil hand Cascais on order. And a type B Sea Storm as well. And an Estoril on my wrist right now. I guess I'm dangerously close to being a Borealis fanboy...

    No, I was referring to situations in bright light when the lume is NOT illuminated. I apologize for not making that clearer.

    Note the discrepancy in this photo posted earlier by Jeep99dad. See how much grayer the hands look compared to the indices?

    That's just a prototype. It won't happen on the production models, they were aware of that before sending out the prototypes.
