Changes for production versions:
- Simplified dial layout (see colour renders) - brand name removed, logo enlarged and lowered down the dial. Giant Stride text removed
- Four micro-adjustments on the milled clasp - standard for the clasp is three, we’ve added a fourth
- Numerous minor technical improvements to elevate quality (case contouring, crown fitment etc)
- Lastly, we’re delighted to advise that our Giant Stride manufacturer is testing all bracelets to minimize the risk of the 1200HV hardness treatment impacting bracelet screws.

I appreciate how short they kept the lugs. I wonder if the the end links will really extend past the end of those lugs as the render suggests. The prototypes don’t seem to suffer from that issue.
