Arktis limited edition?

Once upon a time there was a limited edition of the Sinn 203 Arktis, a run of 1000 pieces. As I've just seen on on the web, I have some questions in connection with it:

- when was this limited edition actually produced?
- is it possible that the number of the limited series (e. g. XXX/1000) was marked only on the box and not on the case back?
- what is the difference (if any) between this edition and the "street version"?
- is the dial already with Superluminova or still Tritium? (earliest Arktis watches might still use Tritium, though I'm not sure about this)

Thanks in advance! Regards,
Robert

I think it was only the special blue outside box,with handwritten serial-no. on it
(I have one box of them from our "Forum-Father Markus Zorg"),
so I think the watch itselve ist a normale one,
maybe the titanium version? is much rarer than 1000 pcs. I think? :pinch:
but I am not absolutly shure...
Is there any other difference? :cl:

Thx Stefan for your reply,
I've also seen the titanium version on the web but now the steel version is talked about. You make me more sure that the watch itself is not a limited one, only the paper box :) that is exactly what I saw on the scan but did not really believe my eyes :) So no premium price to be paid for this watch on the used market... as I'm after a pre-loved Arktis for quite a while but still hunting for the best price/quality ratio piece.
Best regards,
Robert

2008?

Danke schön!
In diesem Fall wirklich keine Limitierung-Schriftzug am Gehauseboded, sondern nut am Umkarton... :(
Kommt diese Serie aus 2008 - ist es korrekt?
Gruss,
Robert
