Neither Porsche Design nor Etena have done anything significant in some time now. Hopefully this will spark change for both.

The watch has the livery of the best Le Mans car ever (Ford GT), but all I see is Herbie the Love Bug.

Nothing to not like here. Zenith does what they do very well, consistently.

@Ulysses31 Yep, it was the original Champlain 3-hand diver, and I won't lie, I own that one too (I own 3 Precisionists, I do think they represent great value). It is this same case design, in solid TI, with black dial and blue handset. It doesn't fly under the radar, but it has none of the bling this one does, and I wear it as well.
When I got it, I left it alone for exactly a year - did not adjust for daylight saving, did not change the date after February, etc. It lost 3 seconds. I did not micro-manage the accuracy, that is the mean deviation after a 365-day period. There may have been times when it lost more and gained it back, but after a full year the accuracy claims were blown out of the water. And it is still running strong on the original factory battery.

@Ulysses31 Agree. this is a great movement, but that model is hideous. I couldn't resist trying out the movment, and picked up a Wilton 96B183. Night and day better looking, and on sale at $400, it was a no-brainer and I actually wear it.
I wish that was the one we were reviewing here, I think it would be much more meaningful.
The watch is great, looks nice, but i want to pick on these renderings. This is a 1/4 million dollar watch, and the renderings look like they were done by a student as an entry-level art project. Unrealistic shading and light effects, and reflections that don't make any sense. Kinda funny, really.

Meh. This is not really a brand I have a lot of time for, but the watch is not awful. Bovet makes me think of big ribbon-type lugs and cheesy looking serpentine hands, and this offering has neither, so I guess thats a good thing, but the dial side layout is a little strange, and the movement view is fairly boring. I can't find a compelling argument for this to be the next $45k watch I buy.

@Ulysses31 yellow + red = McDonalds. No thank you.

Nice, and obviously very well made, but nothing really exciting or to rave over. A solid gold movement in a solid platinum case is quite the dose of decadence. The watch must have a curious heft.

Why do we never mention the ugly records these watches keep breaking?
And, for the record, Bubba Watson wears it better than Nadal.

Nice, but not the Omega for me, as I've said before.
And, while I know this watch line has been around for a good while now, whenever I see or hear the term "Planet Ocean" I can't help but hear David Attenborough's voice telling me about photophores and tidal pools. I know I'm actually referencing Blue Planet, but still.

Nice article. Funny that you see some Gruebel Forsey here, because when it looks to me like it wants to be an MB&F Legacy Machine when it grows up one day.

Not bad. I'm not concerned about the screws being indexed, I think it has more personality and comes off as more 'human' with them falling where they may. As if people actually made the watch instead of some machine.
Black dial in Ti for me.

The watch is quite handsome and understated, I'd likely swap the bracelet out for a military-inspired strap of my own creation, and would certainly wear it.
Even in dressier occasion, I prefer somewhat sportier watches. Meaning, I can pull off a chronograph with a suit no problemo.

No thank you. It is proportionally challenged, and that flat dial just looks cheap.
Also, there is a type in the price - you've added an extra zero by accident.

My comment basically mimics others. And if I could afford to drive a Bugatti, I wouldn't. I've got much better (in my opinion) ambitions in cars for that kind of money.
But, as i said last time we talked about this watch, it is most likely the nicest sport one they have - certainly the nicest ParmBug collaboration watch.
Holy shit, I just rebranded them to the power of 100.
ParmBug - the watch you wear when your young sexy wife and your sexually virile best frond drive off together in your Bugatti Sexerosa.

Blue one is the best looking one yet. They should have gone that one extra step and had jewels made in blue.

The enameled outer ring is maybe the most curious part - up close, and if the light is right, it appears to have an almost engine-turned application. I'd like to know more about that, it is an interesting and unique way of displaying the enamel.

@MarkCarson Thanks for that. I wanted to say the same thing but didn't want to be 'that guy' that doesn't wet his pants just because it's JLC.
So many of these prices are completely unjustified. In my opinion of course, and I certainly have no negative thoughts about Patek. Some of these examples are pretty silly though.
