Given a choice between a PVD coating and steel I would prefer steel
So many of these dial colours are lovely. I could go with any except perhaps the brown and the one to its left
I think my favourites would be the pale blue top, 3rd from right and I like the pale green bottom right
Although I do like the deep green bottom second from right, it is too close to the Alpinist
Interestingly a lot of people would like to see an Alpinist with a blue dial
I love the Alpinist but its too expensive for me.
I like Russian watches so for me this is an interesting alternative.
