Yes, the watches in the pictures were production samples/prototypes, which means they were produced on the same moulds that will be used for production, but there will be some changes:
1. The minute accumulator sub-dial at 3 will have 30, rather than 36 marks, and every 5th mark will be darker, for easier reading.
2. The cases will have a brushed (satin) finish, and the bezel (rim around the dial), crown, and pushers will have a polished (mirrored) finish. There will also be a polished edge along the top of the lugs.
3. The straps will be higher quality. They'll have a buffalo grain texture and a thicker gauge thread. The orange thread will have a deeper dye. The brown strap will be a more reddish-brown color.
