    Whatever happened to this (Aviator GMT)?

    This photo was posted by another member awhile back. Did Ball decide not to go with these hands on the Aviator GMT? It was rumored back then to be an "asian model" of the GMT. Was it really just a pre-release photo, or is this still an option?



    Regards,

    Trivia question of the month:
    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 was a pre-release photo taken by Asian press at the Basel Fair. The watch was still in development at that time and we finally opted for the hands you see now.

    Best Regards,

    Thanks for clarifying, Jeremy. I wish you had gone with those hands, but oh well.
