@Ulysses31 True True...i mean you wouldn't expect him to look like an investment banker right? Considering Scott Ian (of Anthrax fame) is an accomplished watchmaker with a penchant for complications this guy fits right in with the image i had in my mind---i thinks he looks positively normal considering his wacked out designs!

Mad props for a well thought out design (for the style obviously). The let's-stick-a-mammoth-tooth-in-a-kryptonite-case-and-blast-it-with-our-laser-beans schtick was getting a bit old anyway!

@Ulysses31 "bafflingly popular line-up." My thoughts exactly!
While they are built well, they feel disjointed as a design, too bulky, with a weird top-heavy fit and the worst hands imaginable . I want to like them but I can't :(

@MarkCarson Still, compare this to the $100 cheaper Benz/Varvatos, and suddenly this feels like a bargain ;)
At least it looks like it could cost $6900 !

The casio dials are in a league of their own...
When it comes to quartz the Japanese are the wild cheetah roaming through the land, while the swiss are the asthmatic ant with some heavy shopping, that is trying to catch up.

I see this watch competing with the Swatch skeleton automatics, vying for wrist time on the fashion watch crowd. I do appreciate reading about different kinds of watches, even if I would not normally consider them, being to "fashiony."
It doesn't look that bad but for the price I can't see many readers of this blog picking one up soon. I could probably wear it once for a formal event, just for the sake of variety.
And then I would return it to the store.

Me likey! I can't tell if the dial is too distracting for daily use, but it certainly has depth! Also, i think it's a little funny that the average citizen takes 3-5 seconds to adjust the time to a different time zone with no loss of accuracy (see promaster SST for example), so anything over that seems like a long time to wait.
Of course, 20 seconds is definitely an improvement but i can't see many people waiting 60 seconds for the time to adjust itself. It wouldn't take that long on a mechanical where you would set the watch back 8 hours and re-adjust the date. At least on the next flight when i see someone trying to stick their hand on the window so the watch can get a signal i'll be sure to check their watch ;)
Oh and count me in for a white ceramic case with white ceramic bracelet--and green accents! mmmmm... eco friendly!

@DG Cayse admittedly BP is more of a heavyweight in the luxury diver dategory than many others (I'm talking to you Hublot!) so I'm not sure it should compete on price...what they SHOULD do is create a new classic (which this watch looks like it could become) and build on that...I for one would NOT mind this watch with gold hands/indices and a yellow tip on the seconds hands. This watch is a blank canvas of opportunity!

@joeprez pretty much carbon copies :) but i think they work well in this context!

This is really nice!!! Although I would prefer a 6 o'clock date placement, it is not a deal breaker. Also feels very Germanic and restrained which i like!
Funny that you have to choose between a fabric strap and a NATO. Would it really hurt their profit margin to include say, both?!
BTW, I feel that these hands would look great on the Breitling emergency II, instead of those crappy skeletonized ones they used.
@Kris C 15,000 records @ about $0.453 each (wholesale used price) = $6800... coincidence?

"This $680 Hamilton Khaki x John Varvatos is a handsome budget chronograph that looks like it could cost twice as much!"
This is how the review should have started, to continue on the same vein thereafter...
@Kris C don't you think they look kind of cheap?

The first one is a winner--It could go without mentioning the not-so-extraordinary power reserve of 40hrs though...
The white on white looks nice on paper, although the bracelet just looks like it came directly from the extra parts bin but hey, no two will probably be alike!!! ;)
Seriously? The hands are about the same size as my index finger... normally that's a good thing, if only their design wasn't so atrocious!
I'll take the vintage watch on the leather NATO anytime. This new thing...feels like the people who will buy it aren't in on the joke...

It's a step in the right direction but i feel like some elements are not year realized fully. If you're going the Carrera way at least make the case a little more classy. The double lugs just look silly IMO. And the pushers are a nice idea on paper, but they make the case look more barrel shaped on the one side.
The best "inspired by carrera/speedmaster" that i have seen lately is the B&R officer chrono. That thing looks the part and just oozes class.

@Panagiotis I should totally have picked up on that!

Are these seriously their press release photos??? I can get a partial print from the crystal on the bottom photo...The only way I can think of this sort of working for me, is if the photos REALLY don't do the watch justice and it's somehow much MUCH better in person.
Only then would I consider strapping it to my canine companion.
