    Not a fan of the bezel. It doesnt suit the dial Well. I also hope the bezels with inserts are coming soon.
    But the little black circles around the lume dots on the dial are a nice touch though.

    Not sure where this image came from originally but it looks official. The same lineup as in my first post but with these full steel bezels instead of the insert ones. You can see a few of the dials changed slightly too.

    I hope they stick to the original design of the white dude which I want. The other bezel and dial would put me off. The 21 jewel to one side and black circles around the lume dots just looks weird . My opinion of course , others may think differently. ( They're wrong :) )

    I see why they chose the black circles around the hour markers, but the choice of the asymmetrical jewel count in place of the Vostok (B) makes no sense to me.

    The first one of these 160's I've seen listed, even though the dials have been available alone for some time. The crown and bezel look like the stainless steel on the 670 model Vostok just shared but I can't be certain just yet that this isn't just a test batch, like the wavy-line 150's that were abruptly released last year with the old brass bezel and crimped crown. If this is a full steel model like we've been waiting for then perhaps the 150's being released soon will be a refresh of the current ones but in full steel as well.

    A bit odd they are mixing the polished bezel with the brushed case when they previously suggested them being uniform, and users voted in favor of the radial brushing. I think I liked the brushed bezel better but sometimes the contrast isn't bad. I'm also a bit disappointed if they ultimately decided not to paint the hour and minute hands like they originally showed.

    Is this a 42mm or 44mm? The 540HDR no-number is listed as 42mm x 11mm whereas the 540HDR with-number is listed as 44mm x 12mm.

    Any idea what's with the no-number version, are these test batches?
