    Is Ball using a newer, wider tube for the hour markers? Seems they're just between the flat/fat (Aviator) and the skinny hour tubes (Engineer Master II) Ball's been using. Looks like the same (new?) tubes on the Magneto too.

    Yes in the markers these appear to near double width of the ones that were on the older Arabic 40mm. This also looses the numbered minute track that makes the dial look larger. The numbers now have a different color in the day and night (can be seen more on the silver dial). All markers now appear to have metal surrounds.
