I am usually not a fan of orange on watches, and not a fan of the Shazam! second hand, so I voted option #3, the cleanest look of them all IMHO.

V1 with a black dial (not GV) is almost certainly my first Rolex for '08.
Given that the best Milgauss (model 6541) had the lightning-bolt second hand i kind of feel that the new one HAS to have it imho.
Probably a good thing that they didn't do the honeycomb dial though!

Lightening bolt all the way.
I like the way Rolex have infused a bit of history into this model. The early models back in the mid 1950's had the lightening bolt second hand for a few years.
I'm sure it will be a big seller. I'd love to get one some day.

definitely v1 even tho I'm not normally an orange person. I think it sets it apart from the date, datejust, airking etc. Really like the milgauss, but would have to be the black dial for me and I'm not sure I could live without a date function!

I feel about this watch design the way I feel about anything that is supposed to be more rugged than most things like it.

Why do those things have to be yellow or yellow and black?

Why can't they just be tough, but look normal?

Why can't the Milgauss just look like another Rolex?

Why should people who require special protection from magnetic fields have to have a watch that screams, "I'm different."

Why can't they just wear a quartz watch to work?

Okay, that last question was unfair.

Well, I like v2 the best, but like others said, I think you need to have the bold on it, so I'll vote V1...

But if I was getting one, I'd go with the black dial one Hannes posted.... :thumbup1:
