apparantly 'We' don't get it.

The subject is the 'ENGINEER'.

"G" or "H" as 2 differing Case colors are not the same variant.

I think you guys are both saying the same thing?  Bobbee's sayiing why he's voting for the Engineer G and Fifth is saying why he's voting for the generic, or would give less than three ticks for the "G" variant listing.  I remember, when I vote, i believe there's a 50/50 chance that it really is one or the other, but we only have a "G" ad on site which best describes the subject watch. 
So by voting for the "G", I'm not saying it's the "G" (as i would give two ticks tentative), I'm saying it most closly matches the ad for the "G".

Darren, re. the rectangular appearance of the case, I don't know if you saw my post concerning this in the other Engineer thread, but I think it is down to longtitudinal compression, as if you look you will see that quite a few of the ads I have posted seem to suffer from this, as the dials on even round watches look a little "egg-shaped"!

Yes, Bob, I think I'm past the case shape issue. Thanks.

Based on the other (recent) Engineer "G" id'ed in the last week or so, this one should also be the Engineer G.  Same logic as explained in both threads.  Consistent.
I doubt that both  the white and yellow gold are the "G" variant, but I don't think we can say which is which, so why not consitently call both the "G" until ads/documentation surfaces to suggest otherwise. 
Either the yellow or gold is G, or they both are G.   I go with the former, but G (consistenly) works for both now.  I'd still give two ticks for G (as I do in the yellow gold version),  but if we are gonna leave this record without variant designation, why did we ID the other yellow gold record to a G variant level?
