It s a nice watch, but I don't see anything about it that would lead me to believe it is a men's model - ladies through and through.
The sunburst pattern added to the MOP is a nice touch - normally, that material is left as it is, with a smooth surface, but the sunburst is very complimentary.
Any, I doubt even if cut impossibly thin that enough light would pass through MOP, but it looks like the lower subdial (and, as mentioned, the chapter ring) is where the light catching takes place.

ANYTHING other than a sub-alike. Anything. I swear, buckets of these cases are available for $2.99 for anyone that wants to start a 'totally fresh' watch company.

@DangerussArt I thought the reflection of his finger on the shutterbutton of the SLR camera was a nicer touch than the lint, but it all makes for a rich tapestry.
This is most un-Tutima Tutima I've ever seen. maybe it;s just me, but when i think of the brand I envision attractive pilot-style deals with nice coin-edge bezels.
They could have stuck with that mantra while just upping the movements to the new proprietary stuff. I'm not a fan of this direction.

I think I will buy every version, but just for a single watch. Each safe is inside a slightly larger safe. By the time the safecracker gets into the (20th?) and innermost safe, and cracks it, he has then earned the right to steal my PAM233. I made an awesome strap for it from a WWII ammo pouch. I get like, tons of compliments on it all the time.

All that, and you glossed over maybe the coolest part - look at the case back. You can fight sharks down to 3 ATM with the use of this watch? AWESOME!

Nice, and now that it has been done, I see no reason why this cannot become some kind of growing standard in the industry as a whole. Obviously some people are more at danger of being around stronger magnetic fields due to work or whatever, but magnetization is a potential problem for all watch wearers, and why did it take until 2013 until someone made an entire movement non-ferrous.

As a maker of bespoke watch straps, I think I can comment on this with a measure of reasonable accuracy - people like handmade/boutique/LE goods because they feel more special. And they feel more special because they are more special. Everyone has something they love that rolled off the end of an assembly line, but the finer (not necessarily expensive) things in life touch us on a more emotional level.
Oh, and I'd like to go visit RGM because... who wouldn't?

I have been a PAG240 wearer for a long time, and I have put that watch through hell and it shows no sign of slowing.
I do like the idea of having upgraded and more sensitive sensors, but the duplex LCD on my 240 is a really spectacular feature that I don't want to give up - I really wonder why they ditched it. I'd already have this watch otherwise.

Some great choices here, and some inexplicable ones as well, but to each his own.
The Black Bay is one that goes right over my head. I'd have to think twice before buying that one for $100, let alone $3k+, but then my choices would certainly concern others, so again - to each his own.
For more than a 1/4 million beans, that is one awful, cheap, plasticky lookin movement view. The dial side is amazing, but I expected to see magic on the other side and instead it literally looks like shit.
And, while a 14 day PR is nice, it is a massive step backward for the brand, considering the 1st time I heard about them several years ago they were introducing the (then) world's longest at 1000 hours (41-ish days). Now, that watch was a power reserve that tells the time and this one is way more complicated, but they should have moved to re-position themselves as a world leader in power reserve and dethrone Hublot. Instead they are trying to out-ugly Hublot, and really doing quite a smashing job.

The proximity on the bezel can be forgiven - it it likely a stab at making it look bigger then it actually is. The font the bezel number use cannot be forgiven. Too round/bubbly/immature for this watch, and too stark a contrast to the fonts on the main dial, specifically the Roman numerals. Like Ice Cream sneakers with a bespoke Tom Ford suit.

With a style like this, Cartier and Roger Dubuis are going to meet up one day and have very expensive babies.
Cool stuff - all that, and they make such boring watches. Such a shame.

I'll do you both one better - the calendar would look great displayed in the weekday/month/date format cascading on the inner right of the dial, where all the real estate is. A window at 1:30, then 2:30, then 3:30. In that format, you could open them up a little more to show off many some unique font instead of the same basic block font that 90% of all watches from $2 to $250k use. It would be unique without total polarization, leaving the elegance intact.

As someone who is almost 25% tattooed, I really want to love this, even though LW is not a brand I have tons of appreciation for. The engraving is nicely done, I can't lie. I think the gold is killing it for me though. Show me the whole watch in steel, with engravings that look like the caseback and I think you would have a real stunner.
