Ouch guys I love my Roberto U1. It's an acquired taste for some I suppose. I think of his U1s as collecting infinity stones for the Infinity Gauntlet
The worst part about the watch is "Juwelier Roberto" on the dial. Get rid of that, and it'd be alright. I don't understand why colabs always feel the need to advertise on the dial. Apparently these didn't sell well - JR still has some new models FS years after their release.
If I was going to buy one, this is it:

The juwelier Roberto did bother me at first when I saw it in pictures but in person I don't notice it because the script is small. It's like all the other junk people put in the dialsblike "superlative", "1000m", "Swiss made" . What's annoying is that stupid "ugly pineapple" below the date. I think it's the company logo. I always thought it was glare from the camera angle but it's a logo. Fortunately it doesn't bother me.

One of those went cheap on eBay recently. It was wabi'd, but was I ever tempted.
