    Movement is an excellent choice, and the blue version is striking!

    6 o'clock date and 60 minute bezel markings as well.

    I agree with you. Starting to think this might be that special watch I order a blue and a black so my dad can choose which he likes the most and we have a matching set. I bought him a bunch of watches but never a flashlight Lume like this and no Swiss auto yet.

    The C3 X1 Lume I think will explode big time.

    Those cathedral hands are a standout. They really give this watch a distinctive character.

    I'd recommend white, even if I'm not getting white. Why ? Because I know the White Sea Dragons are long sold out while other colors are still available of the SD's. Same thing happened with the white Prometheus Piranhas. Nobody ever sells the white dials of either of those, or very very very rarely you see them pop up FS.

    Easy to sell white and get a black dial if white isn't for you upon arrival.
