    Two Different Engineer II Arabic Chronometers?

    Can someone help me discern the difference(s) between two seemingly identical Engineer II Arabic Chronometers? One is quite a bit less expensive than the other.

    1) NM2026C-S2CA-BK; and
    2) NM1022C-S1CA-BK

    Thanks very much in advance for any insight you can provide!

    The first is the current model and the second in a discontinued version.

    Thank you. To your knowledge, is there anything different besides model #s?

    The line texture pattern is slightly different, with the newer being a tad wider and a little deeper. More apparent if you are holding both.

    Did the new model maintain the blue tubes? Love me some blue tubes!

    According to the Ball web site the numbers are done in blue tubes. The standard 40mm Arabic has more blue as does the Pioneer and the Marvelight if you wish to stay with this case style. Those will not give you the pinstripe dial though.
