Though I'm not sure it was a US edition, and lacks the alarm of course. But the "Blue Double Gradient" dial with off-white numerals is certainly beautiful, and it came with a very nice strap. If that's the watch Dean was referring to, I can certainly see the appeal.
1/ THE CASE AND CASE BACK: I don't really see any Pros to the exhibition case back personally. Would the watch be slightly thinner with a solid case back? Would the alarm sound slightly stronger with a solid caseback? If so, I would consider those significant Cons against the see-through case back.
