Yes, date is bolder, easier to see.
I like the 4.30 date window. I have been drilling or cutting my own 4.30 windows because I think they look good.
I hope they do not discontinue the 710.
Producing the 150 case is easy because it is basically a 090 with the lug shroud removed.
Cheaper to produce.
The 710 has nice angles the 150 does not have.
