Meh indeed.
When I read the U2 tie-in, I was expecting something special. I think Bremont missed a massive trick here, they could have done something really unique and cool, instead they just hit the parts bin and the DLC dept - not cool.

I like the looks, but $5k for one? No thanks.

Here’s a side by side comparison to my Alt1tude SE, and another with the Timeless U2/T.

Another watch that would be stellar with different hands.

At least make the hour hand more similar to the Solo hands, so it appears more balanced.
