Who cares about style accuracy... retro and nostalga rule this game. Those whiners crying for exact copies are the same ones buying updated 100+ year old designs and call them fabulous! I will buy this Bulov, glad to see them moving away from ghetto bling.

Instantly recognizable as a TAG! They were definitely going for that, especially for the old retro crowd. Red is quite tastefully rendered though I'd like to see British racing green or Bugatti blue... a little contrast stitching would've worked too. Nice but wouldn't buy, there are more desirable TAGs with retro DNA

If only the Petals could drop off individually with the passing of each hour! It is quite nice a the gems look very tastefully placed. Thankfully not a totally jewel encrusted monstrosity. That engine turning done by computer controlled mill is outstanding but I would rather see the variation of hand done work by a craftsman.

I've been diving since the 60's with many different watches some well over 2k each, my regular dive buddies all dive with pricey dedicated dive watches.., quite common to seesport divers with wstches ranging from 600 to 2000, certainly the most common being Seiko and Citizen tjat I have seen. This Swatch in fish livery is exactly what a cheap fun watch should be, they should do a clear band to match the case.

Nice personal honest review... in full brass bezel it sure looks like a late 40's early 50's dive compass at first glance. Great look with the leather suede(?) stitched strap. Thick leather straps get a great patina in sea water even though they don't last long. Brass turns this from a dive WATCH to a dive INSTRUMENT in an old school way kinda like using double hose regulators again! Very cool at that price point too.

And no helmet case either! No checkered flag motif or tire tread rubber strap... oops! That's MotoGp. But the question is, Is it "historique" because it's generic? I tend to think so... aftering Oooing and Ahhing over the Jordan Racing Benson and Hedges (Buzzin Hornets) F1 colors it is really a plain jane with little character to offer... Tissot actually does it better stylistically.

Ooooo yellow and black.... The machining is so "dynamic" all around that at first glance I thought it was a Tissot!

Oh that's just Great! Another Oris to add... Hope they stay with reasonable price points. Still think the TT series and Chronoris editions are great efforts and I've used and abused they're divers underwater for years. Just a solid old watch company to me... Change is slow.

....moebius would be far more appropriate rather than the weirdo Japanese comics... even marvel would be better.
