Dial & Hands: The triple six '666' is a personal favorite of ours for many reasons including its history, but for us we specifically love the white gold surround variation due to its varying appearance between each example. The watches produced in the late 80's seem to more commonly than not have dials that tend to turn 'frosted' or 'satin' where the paint in the lacquor will oxidize and react to form interesting patterns that we view as beautiful and collectible. It is harder to find these reactions in the dials when we deviate closer to the 90's and harder to see in the older matte dial variations as well. This one has a very even 'satin' finish on the dial with lume markers that have aged to a nice cream color with hands that match perfectly.
