Has nice fatty hour markers, is anti-magnetic, and uses an ETA 2836-2
Minute marker tubes, DLC (I have heard it uses a modified ETA 2824-2)
I don't care that the aviator is a day/date I am normally pretty good about knowing what day it is. One nice thing about the aviator not being DLC coated is I can wear it with a metal band if I want to. Summers in phoenix tend to "nastify" leather bands. The drawback of the aviator is that it isnt DLC coated.. I love the coating and have seen first hand how scratch resistant it is.
How much better is the 2836 compared to the 2824?
My only complaint about the Night Train is that it is not anti-magnetic. Oh and I wish the window was usable as a gmt insted of just military time...
