    90% of the people I am afraid to say who want to spend money on a watch, will do this because of the brand and status! Unless they are really interested in haute horology.

    Good choice! I know exactly what you mean about the blue hands, they look great in person but it's tricky to get them looking anything but black in photos. Your missus is obviously over the moon with it, as I mentioned previously, obviously a woman of good taste!

    Absolutely - itís like a little hidden extra that pops in certain light. Iíve only managed to capture them a few times on my SE301, I love how they can go from black to bright blue dependant on the light.

    They don't even look blue on the Bremont site.
    I was going to get her a Tudor Claire de Rose as I know she likes the dial and blue hands.
    If I'd known the Solo had them I could have bough it as a surprise, d'oh

    I think it's the white face that makes the hands appear black when they're actually blue. The Bremont 'Boutique' Solo limited edition also has blue hands but every photo you see of them makes the hands look black. I think that with the SE301, although they're still very subtle. the black face contrasts with the blue hands, enough to make the hands look 'not black'. I think that the dark blue hands are my favourite type.

    I've just turned the watch over in my hand, and watched the hands turn from black to blue and It was only a few degrees.
    I'll have to look in the new boutique in Manchester at the S301 and other models.

    Good idea - and a good excuse to visit the boutique and have a look around..!
