    Marine Original

    I was just wondering why the Marine Original with roman numerals is more expensive than the Marine Original with arabic numbers Does it have to do with the way the dial is finished for the roman numeral version Except for this difference, they're the same watch, right Thanks!

    I don't know for sure but I think it must be the dial finish. I have the Roman version and the dial is really beautiful, regardless of the style of the numbers.

    Roman numeral dial is NOT enameled.

    Maybe Jörg or another specialist could explain what is the difference between enamel dials and this particular dial.
