The UTC never became a popular FPJ watch. Some people complain that the globe disk is too difficult to read. My personal objection was that the bright colors of the globe did not bled well with the rest of the dial. However, I feel that issue has disappeared with this new blue dial. Especially on the Pt version, I think it works well. Chances of ever seing one of these in the wild are slim as only 10 pieces of each metal will be manufatured. If anyone here encounter one of these blue dials, please post live pictures as I would love to see and hear more.
What do you think? An improvement or do you prefer the original?
