anyone know the difference between the SARB035 and the SARB023 ?
Other than the price, and the lume on the cheaper 35, are there any differences?
Here's what I gleened from other posts:
The SARB021 (and 023) has a crown guard, flat chapter ring, different hour markers, and a bracelet with subtle polished details in the links. It also has different hands, more stubby than the dauphine hands on the 033 and 003.
Everyone who has handled both feels the finishing on the 021/023 is superior to the 033/035 and more modern looking (with classic details). Lume is on the outer side of the hour markers rather than the inner side as in the 033/035. Second hand is the same as the rest of the SARB line.
The SARB033 (and 035) is pretty much a more modern version of the SCVS003 Spirit with the following differences.
- The bracelet is oyster-style rather than the jubilee
- The Diashock text has been removed
- A script font replaces the all-caps font for the 'Automatic' text.
