Yes it does. In direct sunlight when looking at the surface at 90 degrees and at dusk/artificial light it looks silver. It looks its best at full daylight in the shade, like in the signature picture below in the front of the Welt.

As far as I'm concerned, I picked it because it perfectly shows every crease in the sheetmetal all the time at any angle. And I just happen to love those E92 creases
