@Ulysses31 If it can be engaged at any time, what's the point in having the graphic start at 12? 


Or are you saying that if you click the button when the second hand is at, say, 6, it will immediately sweep forward to 12?

There's too much emphasis on that "Kinetic power swoopy thing" that extends from 12 to 6 in the dial design. Really—how often does that need to be checked? Why does it even have to be part of the design? 


It also assumes that people are pushing the kinetic button when the second hand is precisely at 12. That button can be depressed at any time.

I admire the thinking here. But my simple mechanical watch is one of the few analog devices left in my life. I love being able to leave my mobile and my computer behind and just go out for a walk with this amazing device strapped to my wrist that beats 518,400 times per day, keeps pretty accurate time, and—wow—is powered by the movement of my arm. I'll stick with my smartphone and my mechanical. 


(Very strange—I love watches and I've been part of the Apple cult for over 20 years, but I couldn't be less interested in the Apple watch.) I suspect that there are a lot of people that feel this way.

Love how they show weekdays vs. weekend days. So minimalist, and it works.


I worry that I would be maniacally checking the oil temperature gauge all the time.

Hands look very similar to the Seiko SNZGXX, except that on these, the lumed area is squared off near the tips (works well).

Too much detail on the chapter ring. Takes away from the clean look.

I've never liked these watches. I don't want to have to work too hard at determining what time it is.

@Chaz_Hen I don't know about "me too." Those hands are pretty unique. The only thing I don't care for is the "Los Angeles."

@Ulysses31 The fact that you had to lead with "the back is pretty cool" says it all. :)

The pixelation on the screen is pretty unacceptable in the era of e-ink.

That "TITANIUM" on the side is a bit cheesy.
