I think the hands and indices do match...and they don't!
It all depends upon the light as there appears to be a more polished surface on the side of the indices than on the above. When taken from the side with more light the polished areas catch the light and don't look as black as the hands - which also have two finishes too.

In this case it looks like CW are guilty of putting too much effort into their finishing :clap: !
I'm sure in real life conditions to they eye they look great together (apart from the black date window!)

^^^ out of interest, in what respect do they not match?
The handset has a lovely inky blackness, setting them off perfectly against the white dial. The indices look more like plain steel, albeit I’m happy to take people’s words at face value and accept they may be black. The photographs don’t show them as black. If they matched, it wouldn’t matter how the photograph was taken, they would look matched, ie, both would look black.

I actually like the black datewheel, even though it doesn’t match the dial but then I’m the type of chap who will match belt/shoes/briefcase but not my tie and pocket square. It’s a funny old game. I still dislike the Anthropocene but fully accept, nay, celebrate other’s right to like it.

Same. But I hope there will be one left on Black Friday. I kinda want it, but would love to have discount for it.

It's hard when funds are limited and there's a one-off watch you like. You have to pass and potentially miss-out or pay extra from a seller. But that's the way it is sometimes.
