I like it. I'd have no reservations about wearing it.

I really like JR watches but this one is a bit much for me.
I'm tempted to grab one of their blue or grey brushed dial diver or a
Aeroscope when I replenish the watch funds.

Not bad in the pic, but not exciting enough to buy one.

Beautiful Art, and you know not only is the case shape, and design great, but
look how they've blued the markers. :o ..We often see blued hands, but not
markers ! ..Awesome !!! :headbang: :clap:

I don't see these used very often. I'd be more tempted around the $1200 price point I think ... :shrug:

These are $3,000 watches that no one in their right mind will believe cost that much. Good for you guys that like to keep a low profile.

I see that it also has a bracelet option

This white dial variation is ok - i personally like the blue dial better.

Not too bad looking but it would be nice to see more pics from different angles. The blue of the framed hands and markers seems a bit strong, maybe it would have been better if it was not as thick, less visible, thinner, not as obvious. It is also different from the bezel. Lugs are a bit thin overall, in my opinion.

More pics at different angles could give a better idea though.

The lugs seem appropriate to the innovative case design. :thumbsup: I'd like to see side and caseback views. Looks like like two deformed rails hugging the case. The blue version is better I think. Less blingy anyway.
only accurate watches are interesting

Also thought of adding a white dial, i like how the markers are supposedly a part of the chapter ring and look suspended over the dial, something different. I wouldn't pay sticker for it, but for 1500 I'd try it.

If you're looking for a white dial the AEgir is beautiful. I ordered mine on Sunday :grin:
