So here are the pics...

I had to remove 1 + 1/3 links on the bracelet to get it to fit on my 6 1/2" wrist.
Rob stated the tubes they used on the American version are bigger than the Skin diver. I don't own that watch, but the tubes are huge!
I can actually see the lume in moderate darkness or just by cupping my hand over the watch!
The watch itself seems large to me for a 40mm. I would have to say it wears more like a 42mm and is tall compared to some of my other Ball 'dress' watches (Victory and Moon-Phase) which could be an issue depending on how tight your cuffs are. I have a feeling there are some dress shirts I own that will not fit this watch comfortably under, but for the most part it shouldn't be an issue.
As far as the dial, It is a subdued blue IMO. It isn't as bright and flashy as some of the other blue dials I have seen, but it is nice. I personally like it very much, I would probably describe it as an 'ocean blue' (my girlfriend says it's Colonial Blue) color. Love how the blue dial has a different shade depending on the light.
Great watch for the price, very happy with my purchase!
and some lume shots...
Here are some pics to see how it wears under a shirt.
The Blue shirt is a loose cuff and fits nicely. The Black shirt is a tighter cuff, one I probably wouldn't wear this watch with.
