i still prefer the original model, but at least it doesn't have a weird second hand or the 7 replaced w/007 or something stupid like that.

I dig that lollipop.

It's too bad the article did not show the other items noted... the case back and the engraved gun logo on "the bracelet's strap holder", whatever the hell that means. Is that actually the buckle?

I love the lollipop seconds hand and personally hate the bracelet on the original model so this one might be for me. I like the throwback 0-11 bezel...

I like it, but I doubt "James Bond" would wear fake vintage lume.

I like the second hand a lot. I've never really understood 12 hour bezels on dive watches, though.

Had a watch w one before and it's useful for knowing the time back home at a quick glance while traveling...

Now that you mention it, I like it exactly the same amount for different reasons. Which is WAY WAY better than the old "007" models... :gayumbrella:

i hope the logo at "12" doesn't look like the pro tennis apparel lacoste supplies to their sponsored atheletes, you know, on which the alligator is like 20 times larger than on the consumer versions. it'll be interesting to see how large the logo looks in the flesh. have to admit, i do like everything about the design, but i still think i'd hold out and stretch for a pre-owned jlc deepsea alarm instead.

I like it, and there's no mentioning of the franchise on the dial.

I was ranting(ish) about this on WUS Omega earlier. Not sure why I even bothered...
