Thanks for sharing the report Ivan.
I am fascinated with the vintage look of the Sport Heritage models.
Looks like their experimentation with different shades of lume really paid off.

 :Cheers:

Br01-93 is beautiful
Love the GMT hand as well

But I'm some 1 who don't like to see scratches on my watch especially pvd...
So I sold it...

Actually traded a newer version ceramic case BR also... But too bling bling to my taste...

Hence target lock on
Air borne 2 - coz love the skull as well as seasoned pvd case...

Or

Carbon fiber LE - wanna try out carbon fiber case. This shd b the cheapest by a branded watch company....
Quite like the case design as well

My regret is trading in my BR01-92 and BR03 military.  :o should have traded other watches.
