    What the heck is the difference between the SAR and the GSAR

    I have a new SAR-D on order (will get it today) and just purchased a SAR from a fellow member. What is the difference? I know the newest (or only) GSAR has the Tritium vials and date @ 4. Some have the cyclops, some don't. I believe all have the ETA movement (except for the TSAR). See what I mean? Just trying to find out for no other reason than because I don't know!

    Try CountyComm as they are the folks that designed and introduced this watch. The primary differences in the variations are the face and movement. older style SAR's have a regular face/dial , newer have the tritium dials. There is also a quartz version and an automatic version

    Dale,

    I think it goes like this,

    T-SAR quartz movement
    Tritium Vials hands and markers
    date window between 4 and 5

    G-Sar ETA2824-auto
    Tritium Vials hands and markers
    date window between 4 and 5

    SAR ETA2824-auto
    "Maraglow" hands and markers
    date at 3

    SAR-D is the same as the SAR but the dial was misprinted with the H3 and little radioactive propellar symbol, these are on the TSAR/GSAR due to the Tritium tubes.

    Pretty sure that "Maraglow" is similar to luminova or super luminova.

    I have the TSAR and its a pretty cool watch, the Tritium Vials are great!

    I am hoping that the SAR-D is sitting on my front porch when I get home

    Hope this helps,

    Dave

    It does help. My SAR-D got here today via "Santa Claus in a Brown Suit". I wonder why some years have the cyclops and some don't. Also wonder why I can't have every watch I want. Make that cars too.

    Dale,

    Congrats on the Sar-D, I just got home and mine was on the porch

    I have it on the marathon bracelet already (bought one for the TSAR), looks great.

    I think the cyclops is standard but can be removed when ordered. I think it looks better without it so I may do some digging to see if there is an easy way to remove mine.

    Will post a few shots shortly.

    Dave

    what about within different model year of SAR?

    all i know is that at some point, they switched to 120 click bezel (from 60 click) and/maybe metal movement holder (from plastic movement holder)

    On some of the production runs, you could choose w/ or w/o cyclops. I think the '04 started with the 120 click bezel and the staked bezel triangle that won't fall out....
