    Pro Diver Hands - Black or Nickel plated

    Hi all, after seeing all the great pictures and reviews of the Prodiver, the bug has really bitten for me to get one.

    I am considering a black dialed model, but the Schauer website displays it having orange min and sec hands.
    However, I have seen a beautiful example owned by another foum member with a black dial and nickel plated hands.
    How does one go about getting this change and how much would it cost? Also, what are your opinions on black dial with black hands?

    Thank you!

    I like the Black dial with Black hands or Black dial with White hands (Sinn like)... With a brushed or blasted finish... the nickel hands are a little "shiny" for this model... although all of these look better than the orange, IMHO.

    I've got a black dial with the black outlined hands and it looks great. Also has a black bezel.

    Go for it, either will look great. Here is my PD all black hands black dial, and a beadblasted finish.
    These pics are with the standard bezel, I will put up a few later tonight with the plain ss bezel.
    Either way you will enjoy the PD. Beautiful design, heft, quality, lume extrordinaire!

    " For watches there's always TIME "

    I was asked what the time was that was on my watch ?
    Does anybody really know what time it is ?
    Does anybody really care ?
    If so I can't imagine why..........
    I do, I do, I do care about time.

    Nickle plated hands without applied indices just seems a bit unbalanced to me.

    Well,

    this version with nickel plated hands is mine
    I think it´s looking perfect and not shiny, as well as the SD!



    Current watches: only a few
    Sold watches: too many
