    The Engineer Master II Chronometer LE is a limited edition of 999 pieces. It is using the ETA 2836 Day-Date movement.

    The regular EM Chronometer uses the 2824 Date-only movement, has a less textured dial, and is available on calf leather rather than crocodile leather strap.

    The Engineer Master II Diver Chronometer is not a limited edition.

    Ray--I picked up this gold dial version just this month NIB so they are still out there. The gold is very subtle in shade and shows off the guilloche dial beautifully. Hope you find the one you like!

    i am also a chronometer LE owner. Mine is the one with the black dial.

    Be aware tho, the dial (at least mine) is very reflective and at certain angles, it will reflect a large amount of light. The hour and min hands are mirror finished silver that are quite hard to read sometimes. I usually read the watch at a 45 degree angle to be able to see it clearly. Otherwise it has to be a 90 degree angle to be with the least amount of reflection.

    Finally, rem that on a very bright day, be careful when reading the watch. I got 'blinded' by the reflection of the sun from the dial before. (as in when i closed my eyes, i can still see the imprint)

    otherwise, its a very sturdy watch and extremely accurate!!

    Interesting observations about your black dial. My gold dial has no such issues and is very readable even with my fuzzy close-up vision.

    I too wonder if it's a black dial thing.

    I miss my white one at times:

    wow! maybe it really is a black dial thing!!

    when I take photos of the watch, you will even be able to see the reflective portion due to the dial design!! Will try to put up pics once I have the photo.

    It was irritating at the start but after some time, I got used to it and learnt when not to look at the watch and what angle to read the time at...
