I already have the All-White model... *LINK*
In Response To: o.k. outstanding model ()

: allrigt, thanks, so the 12 is for the 12 hours : counter, right?

Yep, as in this catalog from the period (Upper Left):

does it have to be that coulour combination for you?

I already have the All-White model... I do not have a huge interest in the all black model (I own a Re-Edition and am satisfied with it.) I really like the Black-Eyed White Dial (BEWD), but certainly let me know of any of the opposite "White Eyed-Black Dial" (WEBD) Carrera 12's show up anywhere. Both of these Carrera's are still on my "to be acquired" list, although it is the Black-Eyed White Dial (BEWD) that I prefer of the two. For some reason, the White Dial (BEWD) seems more classy and dressy than the opposite combination to my eye...

For what it's worth I already own the "Poor-Man's" Zodiac combination of these two, and I would like to get the "real thing"...

The White dial always seems a bit more formal/dressy to me than the black, although it is just as sporty lookin'!
