You’ll occasionally find vintage true blue scuba dude from the 90’s or earlier. Some have spider dials (cracks), others faded. Some have the Soviet writing at the bottom and some have russia. The teal showed up around 5-6 yrs ago as far as I remember when I was looking for a blue one.

Who knows? Meranom might be making blue dials again.

Actually it’s the other way around, the true blue is the classic, the teal appeared later and seem to have replaced the blue.

All I know it’s a 420 case but not sure if you’re going to get the true blue as most of their “blue” is more teal.

I totally respect their decision to upgrade but some things should’ve been left alone. But then again, it’s not like I’m going to get another field watch from them. Just sucks for the rest who might consider getting a simple handwinder—that can be adjusted to COSC if one is so inclined.

Get a 58 then! Geez. There are many people who prefer the current size of the 54 y’know?
