    Engineer Hydrocarbon Hunley - color options?

    Hey Ballers,

    I came across a photo online from Basel 2014 of the EHC Hunley, and it had a black dial with a blue bezel. Loved it. Can anyone who is "in the know" confirm/deny that it will be available in that color combination? Thanks in advance for any info.

    Regards,
    - Jeff

    The history of the Baselworld Watch and Jewellery Show dates back to what year, when there was established the first Schweizer Mustermesse Basel (MUBA) with a special section devoted to watches and jewellery?

    It is Black on Black. Not certain of the picture, but the price list gives Black only. Most likely lighting playing tricks.

    Here is the press release from Basel:

    Thanks, Michael. The pic was from another site, so I don't think it would be appropriate to post it here. I don't think it was the typical light playing tricks, as there were several shots at different angles, and the bezel looked blue in all of them. It also had a more unique/different looking power reserve indicator. Unfortunately, this looks like little more than a ceramic XV with the traditional power reserve indicator. Kinda disappointing.

    I too was hoping it would be a two color combo, but black and black should still look nice.

    It also has the Amortizer like the Orbital which accounts for the thickness over the XV.
