    possible?

    Hi I've been lurking for a while and decided to throw a post everyones way.
    Ok i'm not a veteran of this watch game, all i own presently is a Breitling SOP and a couple vintage Omega militarys. Well I am in the market for a new baby now and I definitely dig big chunky divers such as the seatime/prodiver.(bigger=better )
    Atop the crisp german craftsmanship the personal service that seems to be given is unmatched by the assembly line swiss houses.

    My question is I'd really like a white dial prodiver with either orange or (even if possible, PLEASE!) blued hands, with the chronometer movt. and a seatime viewback (I'm not concerned with depth rating as i only swim in pools and surf a bit).
    Could this frankenstein be made at the factory for me? The prodiver is a bargain as it is so i wouldn't mind paying a little more for customization.
    Any information given would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum sikniss.
    Can't hurt to ask Jorg!
    Good luck.

    Hello and welcome !

    I'd say:

    - White dial possible
    - Orange hands (at least minute and second hand) possible
    - Blued hands not possible
    - Chronometer movement possible
    - Seatime back not possible

    But in the Jörg must decide, so feel free to e-mail Stowa about your wishes.

    Greets,
    Andreas

    maybe i can consolidate

    buy the seatime limited ed. yellow chronometer and beg Jorg for a dial change to a white one....
    i could get over the hands thing.

    oh and thanks for the welcome!

    I just emailed Jorg in the past couple of days about a dial change as I own a Prodiver with the limette dial and I'm on the fence about the color. Sometimes I love and sometimes I'm not sure. It's a unique color and in different lights it looks different ways.

    Anyway, he replied this morning and he says the white dials are sold out. I sent him a reply to ask if there will be more white dials made and am now awaiting his reply.

    I'm thinking I may keep the limette but if I do change to the white dial I'm thinking of keeping the black hands and going with an orange sweep which would be very cool. I also asked about a spare set of screws and was told not a problem.

    The limette on the Black strap is so unique and such a great looking piece.. but I could see where something a little less "bright" would be a little more versatile.

    But that piece is such a great look... I would probably just buy a second one if I had the funds.

    Crue4, it is really cool and like I said, a lot of the time I really love it. I don't think I've ever seen another watch with a face like this except maybe on Glycine model but that was only in pics on the WUSK forums. But in certain dim light conditions it takes on a muddy green caste that does not contrast well with the hands. It's a subtle thing and most of the time it looks fantastic so I'll probably end up just enjoying it. But I always want to see what my options are...
