Sorry to be pedantic ( what else would you expect of a watch nerd ? ) but I think you will find that the dial was inspired by a tachometer and not a tachymeter .

I am a fan of the brand but I find this one a bit busy . Also , I am not convinced of the utility of a compass bezel on a "space" watch !

Anyone remember the "luxury" smartphones from a couple of years ago ? Those gold and platinum bejewelled monstrosities that were ( technologically ) out of date almost the same week that they hit the market ? I wonder if the smart watch people have drawn any lessons from this .
Probably not .
@Oelholm Sounds like an event where they sit in a circle and play with their own "private members ".
Think I will give this one a miss .
Reminder to self , must watch Zoolander again.
He is a master watch maker . His opinions will always be more interesting and relevant than those of any watch company corporate " suit " with an agenda to push .

@AlistairRussell I know it's a cliché but I really don't think its an exaggeration in this case to say that if you can afford to drop 100000+ euros on a watch , you can probably afford to have someone wind it for you .
That said , I totally agree with your point , sadly it is not a problem I am ever likely to experience first hand .

I think the expix would make a great travel watch especially if teamed with a compact solar charger . I have been left in the lurch on several occasions when relying on my phone's GPS functionality in countries with poor or patchy mobile services .
This is the first smart watch that I would seriously consider purchasing . .

Should I ever not want to know what time it is I will remove my watch and place it in my pocket . Wow I just realised that I am $120000 better off ! Thank you ABTW I can now afford more beer .
" something Swiss brands prefer to refer to as "poetic." " , or what we in Australia refer to as "wankery" .
Are you sure you were not saving this for April 1 ?
Kind of defeats the purpose of a display case back. Like many of the current iterations of this technology it screams afterthought and speaks of an unseemly rush to get something out there . Maybe they could incorporate a screen saver showing an animation of mechanical watch movement .

Thankfully there are much cheaper ways to look like a total knob . For around $30 I can buy a Hublot "REPLICA" in every street market in S.E.Asia , look like a tasteless wanker , AND piss off owners of the read thing . Life is good !

Significantly less tasteful than the city and "sport " that inspired it .
To be honest I usually just skim through the Hublot posts and go straight to the hate mail .

I love it !

I am not usually a fan of "carbon " watches , but I do like the finish on this one . It almost looks like Damascus Steel from some angles . I would like to see one with a rotating inner bezel , but that would probably kill any price advantage it has .

Not bad for the price I suppose but I will never again buy a quartz watch that is not solar powered . I have a drawer full of the bloody things all with flat batteries , most of which have only been worn a couple of times since their last battery replacement !

Love it . This watch combines two of my favourite features , a 6 o'clock date window and an internal rotating bezel . Maurice Lacroix is not the first name to spring to mind when I think dive watch , but this really works for me . The fact that it is not trying to look like a Sub' is also a big plus . Bravo .

How is this "Watch Industry News" ? Oh wait , you wear it on your wrist , quartz watches have silicone chips and are powered by electrons . Sorry , forget my original question , I see the connection now .

While I appreciate the craftsmanship and labour that has produced this piece , I find it sad that the end result is so "meh".

I am old enough to remember the derision that was heaped upon the first wave of Japanese automobiles , today we have Lexus and the Toyota 86 . The Swiss should be very worried . The emergence of the Chinese watch industry will make the "quartz crisis" look like a storm in a tea cup ! China has more millionaires than many countries have people and they are very nationalistic / patriotic . I fear the Euro industry may find themselves living in interesting times .

@thornwood36 I used to feel the same way about the three day date window until my eyesight began to deteriorate ( with age ). While I still dislike the look , I find it easier to read the date at a glance when I can see the day before and after . No more wondering if it is the third or the eighth .
