Thanks so much for the news, and for giving us a glimpse at this !!!

Thanks Tom!

Agreed! It does look killer! I would rock that yellow with a black Isofrane. I’m really looking forward to seeing more color variations Image

Very interesting. I've always liked the original. I will definitely keep my eye on this one as it develops. The yellow is a bit much so I will be checking out the other offerings in the lineup. And looking at the overall design, I think the hands are a bit weak though, especially with all of the visual activity of the dial. It would have been nice to see the hands a bit more prominent.

Overall, I really like it.

Original 50 was 46mm wide
This one is based on the smaller case at 42mm
I was in if the original size but there are probably more buyers at 42
Does this buck the trend of re-issues coming out larger?
Trying to hide my disappointment

Better. Still wish it had the depth meter.

Not sure the depth meter would fit in the smaller case, it would also be considerably more expensive.
They could have added a GMT hand and had that read from an inner ring that mimicked the depth gauge.

My OCD is kicking in. I'm not sure why they did it but if you look at the inner scale the numbers 20 and 25 are following the pattern but 35 and 40 are the other way around. If you turn 35 and 40 around to be "the right way up" then would you not have 20 and 25 turned around too? It just looks off to me.

Regards Graeme

I think the watch looks good. It would be more appealing if they used a different colored strap on it.

Yeah that’s messed us up and once seen, cant be unseen. Too bad, the yellow is kind of cool.

Yeah, the other odd consequence of this is that the 40 on the dial and the bezel have the opposite orientation.

There was a guy on TZ back in the day who used to call that "radial flip". Drove him nuts.

While I do love me some yellow watches, I just cant get into this one. It might be the two tone yellow.

It's not OCD, it's common sense - that's just awful and would drive me nuts as well...

It's a very weird choice to say the least. Is there any rationale or were they just drunk?
