that date is awful...you have the 10 on the bezel going one way and the date going the other... :shrug: :scratch: :think:

This is why you don't drink while you design a watch.

I understand brands wanting to be different, but how does that get put together and someone says yep, that’s a winner! Big no for me.

Hate the crown position, date placement, dial colors/sunray effect, and bezel insert rather than solid engraved bezel.

I like the straps!

It looks funky rather than vintage....

If by “funky” you mean terrible, then I agree.

That's a shame - if they had just stuck with the normal 50 atmos configuration with a bronze case it would have been excellent.

Is the bezel actually two different shades of bronze or is that a reflection?

I think it’s just an odd reflection.

If they put the case & date window the 'normal' way, then I'd only not like the colours all that much ...

Agree that the strap looks usable :cheers:

WTF why?

Bremont puts its crowns in weird places and doesn't have to resort to this kinda lazy shit.

Pass.

Squale frustrates me. They have a solid diving history and an iconic case design, yet they seem hell-bent on royally fucking up that heritage.
