i like it. physical specs (42/22) are just right for me, but with all dial and zero bezel, that thing's gonna wear big :shock:

Like the color, just not a fan of "big date" watches or the giant 60 on this one.

Another few years and your eyes will go (like mine) and then you'll start to appreciate big date lol

And the 60 is different for sure

The nonsymmetric cut out of the chapter ring for the "60" is... not nice on my eyes.

I didn’t even notice it until you pointed it out. Now it’s all I can see.

It was the first thing I noticed. Sadly.

I didn't notice that either but I can't say it bothers me

I just got my first pair of prescription glasses within the last year. I am already heading down that path. :banghead:

It's funny guys, when first seeing this didn't even notice a lot of the things
you are pointing out with it ! :salute: ..Honestly thought the '60' was a neat way
of celebrating the anniversary for instance, but then noticed the uneven
way it was cut out like you pointed out Jacob ! ..I wonder if maybe that
will change in production, or if this was just a prototype possibly.

Guess maybe the date could be smaller too Chris, and yeah this actually
could wear big like you are saying thanks to the all dial thing Erik. :o

Man oh man, you guys have a great eye ! :clap: Or eyes !!! :grin:
