The coconut thing is just HILARIOUS!!! BTW, you should do something similar Mark, include a bowl with a live reef fish with your watches--color matched to the dial!!!

Like others have stated, IWC needs a design compass for their Aquatimers--they just insist on some details that look odd IMO.


The teeth of the bezel are too spread out, and the part sticking out on the left side of the case makes the whole watch appear more elliptical than round. The shape feels odd on a sports watch.


The bronze I generally like but I doubt the patina would complement this watch much. I would have preferred the recent "new vintage" aquatimer case from a few years back--complete with aged lume...now *that* I could get behind.  


Oh and the Darwin caseback...seriously? Looks more like Zombie Rasputin.

I would like to win this watch because I never win anything.

Too funny!!! Well played!!! It IS somewhat scary that I could totally picture Hublot offering something like this--in all likelihood someone WILL offer a life-threatening complication for the thrill of it...

I like Breitling but they are going about it the wrong way here...I guess they were aiming for manly/retro but the result feels like a Hello Kitty Maybach crossover...

Really like it! Blue-black is a winning combination in my book...Tudor didn't have to be loud to make a point...

Compare this to the terrible re-release of the (already terrible IMO) Tudor Ranger and watch people scratch their heads in amazement...

Do the end links stick up a bit? They seem to be protruding as if the bracelet is about to come off!


All in all, this is about as balanced as a watch gets--along with the newest sub 'no date'.

I can tell you what we don't have enough of: WIRE LUGS!!! They just make everything look more classy!
I loved the black dial, but the white dial with the tan ostrich strap = PERFECTION

Also, does anyone else feel that this is something that Ikepod would have come up with, had they survived and grown more mature in their designs?

@marbstiu  Seriously...the whole vintage thing is so played out...I really don't see the appeal except in perhaps a few vintage pieces that I wouldn't wear anyway, but keep on display or for a special occasion. 

Technology moves on and even a cheapish chinese made watch is better made (with today's technology) than the majority of vintage pieces from 40 years ago.

I'm with you all the way--buy new and enjoy wearing them!
