I could do without the orange on the second hand. Other than that, not horrible. I kinda like that burly crown. Not for $1.5k though.

Edit: though what’s up with the dual triangles on the bezel.

I just read that Orion Calamity and Dufresne Barton Springs will be a in romcom based on a distant satellite, many light years from the sun. The ship is in a declining orbit and the pair discover love as they work to save the mission.

The name seems fitting. Not sure what the bezel pip is supposed to be, but it looks like a 90’s windows icon.
