When I read the price I thought it was a late April Fools joke ! Seriously , you could drop a zero of the end of the price and it would still be ridiculous . You can wax lyrical about its technical excellence , but anyone who would pay this sort of money for something that looks like it came from the  Police / Ice / Two Dollar Shop catalogue needs their head examined .

Not a fan.

On reflection the first sentence makes it obvious that this is a "joke" article .

@Ulysses31 Can't remember the last time one of my watches was crushed or penetrated , I did however run over one with a lawn mower once and that did not end well for the watch . I can assure you that even  steel cases and incabloc movements have their limitations.

 I will be interested to see how these stand up to normal wear and tear . I like the design but fear they would become a scratched , horrible mess in short order , even without the intervention of lawn care appliances .

does it come in a southern hemisphere version where the seasons match the astrological symbols ? A real deal breaker for me ( that and the fact that it is $563000 over my most optimistic budget ).

If I had 23 grand to drop on a watch ( in my dreams ) this would be the one . I liked the original type3 , but was not a fan of the lugs , to my eye they did not sit well with the rest of the design . Problem solved , this a much more cohesive design.

I love this watch and will spend the rest of the day in a state of minor depression knowing that I will never own one .

I like the style but way too big and way too expensive . I get the whole free market thing ; ie , charge what you can get away with , but I reserve my respect for companies that at least try to offer some semblance of value for money , even in the "luxury" field .
