    U1 S Blue..... WatchBuys sneaking this in under the radar

    Apparently this hasn’t been discussed by WatchBuys or anybody else? At the New York roadshow this was there



    Almost perfect it just needs all white printing on the bezel. Like the U1 Professional

    A black case with a blue dial and white markers? Pass
    My collection changes so often I got tired of redoing my signature

    How much of a premium were they asking for a blue dial?

    IDK ? Not my photo.

    I emailed Rob at Watchbuys when the preorders will start. I will only order if I can get all white printing on the bezel. The red just doesn’t look right to me

    I was thinking the U1P bezel would look good on the regular U1 B... U1 B SDR!
    I should try and source one for my U1 B.

    I would love to have all white printing for the T2B but they said no...

    Agreed, should be all white.
    When some a wild-eyed 8 foot tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the bar room wall and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asked you if you’ve paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye and you remember what ol’ Jack Burton always says at a time like that: Have you paid your dues Jack? “Yessir the check is in the mail”

    Current lineup: ROLEX 126600 Sea-Dweller red-Line. Casio GPR-B1000. Seiko SKX007. Casio PRW-2500. Casio PAW-1500.

    That would be perfect

    Maybe start a thread to see who would be interested to order U1P bezels and present it to WatchBuys. They wouldn’t be cheep either, maybe $350 each. We would probably need a 25-30 piece minimum order.

    I personally think they’re way more legible. I would love to have some made for my T1’s as well.

    Cheers

    forum member “Beeboo” had Sinn make him a custom white printing for his T1. I’ll see if I still have the photos

    I found them the white replaced the black. It’s still more legible IMO.

    Yes, we would need enough numbers to make it viable.
    Are the U1/U2/T1/T2 bezels interchangeable? Would give us a greater pool to get numbers from.
