    New Lunar Pilot 96A225 Mirror Finish

    I recently bought the new version and the older version (96B251) to compare the bead blasted vs mirror finish. Before arrival, I thought I would prefer the bead blasted, but I think I might like the mirror polish more.

    I'm sorry about the plastic on the crystal. I haven't decided which to keep, if either.

    Which to choose??

    96A225 - mirror finish, no date, old school logo
    96B251 - bead blasted finish, date, new logo

    I am surprised I am saying this. But that polished version looks really good. Are the crystals flat or are the domed? I thought I had seen Bulova changed to a domed crystal.

    I have the black version and absolutely love it.

    Crystal is flat on both. I thought I had heard dome crystal too, but it's not.

    I like the mirror too, but bead blasted is true to David Scott's watch. My wife said the bead blasted looks like plastic and the mirror looks like a "real watch."

    I also like the new strap (96A225) better than either of the straps that come with bead blasted (96B251).

    The mirrored finish version looks better in my opinion.

    It does look great. I am worried about scratches though. My other watches have smaller areas of mirror polish, but this watch has a ton of mirror real estate. I'm just not sure if the scratches will give it character or look ragged over time.
