    Yep. They still have that nice textured matte dial.

    I just don't understand why Helson changed the bezel to painted markers instead of lumed markers on the new batches. That's what made them so dam special IMO.

    Sold my Black and Orange ETA 42 SDa nd it's a major regret. Just ordered a new Black 42SD to see if it will fill the desire to have one back. Wish we could still get it with the Matte bezel..

    Got my SD42 ETA Blue Face today. I will post a photo when I get a free moment. Initial impressions :

    Awesome movement. Dead silent and sweeps about as smoothly as my Submariner. Any dos and don'ts on setting the time and date? Just want to make sure I don't harm the movement, but it seemed pretty easy.

    Bracelet > Black band. Wore the Black band in the morning and got the bracelet sized (4 links removed) at lunch. My god, this bracelet adds so much presence to the watch. Does anyone prefer mesh? And if so, is the Helson mesh worth the price or is there a better alternative? I also could see a fun alternative - a yellow Isofrane. Now that could make a statement.

    Size - SO glad I got the 42. My wrists are a little over 7 and the 40 would have just been another Submariner size. I almost feel like I could have gone with a 45, but that may be overkill - the 42 is a perfect size. Insane presence on the wrist when you add the bracelet. Not sure if that carries over with Mesh, but I am extremely impressed with the Helson Bracelet.

    The Lume - epic and amazing. Hold it under any light source briefly and its charged up. Walking around outside for a bit can turn a dark elevator ride back up to the office into a dance party. Very impressive.

    Questions on cleaning - any good links for how you all clean these? I like my watches to stay shiny and new looking. I don't have a watch tool for the Submariner so I just have it cleaned when it's serviced, but I'd like to really keep this one fresh looking.

    Wear - wears a lot like a Submariner but chunkier and the bracelet is just beefier. It's really a meaner, more aggressive dive watch IMO, and thats what I wanted.

    Bezel - no issues with my bezel here. It spins nice and true and is not difficult to set.
