While I'm certain this will be effective, I have never been swayed or inspired to own anything based on brand ambassadors (paid or not) or event sponsorship. All those dollars spent on Tiger Woods and Roger Federer, F-1 tie ins and so on are lost on folk like me. The very idea that someone (including myself) would think "Hey he wears the same watch as this celebrity, he must be just a special" is completely absurd.

Tried this on in Beverly Hills - loved it then, love it now. It's definitely on the lust list.

I'm not wild about this particular model, but I am in favor of B&R doing more round cased models. Just take some of the same BR01 models and put them in round cases and I'd be happy. I can't wear the "brick".

Soooo cool. It's a perfect companion piece to the La Ferrari automobile. Both are impractical, extreme, pricey and more of an artistic expression than anything truly useful. Sort of like a Faberge Egg, owning it isn't about anything other than being able to own it and appreciate it.

Holy Carp! that's a good looking coupla watches! The Jack Heuer Special Edition is really nice.

Too Bauhaus for me. I think this may be the ugliest watch I've seen in a very long time. Flat painted markers, Ugly flat hands, awful lugs and what appears to be crude case finishing. Don't even get me started on the Coke bottle bottom stuck to the crystal. I would not wear this if it were free.
From their site's "Design Rules" Temption only makes contemporary watches. Our designs draw an Wabi-Sabi and Bauhaus because that's the only way to make watches that will last for decades" Oh brother, really?

That movement! Wow! Very impressive and novel idea. I agree the Muybridge citation on the front is awkward, or should that be "aewkweard"?

I like B&R visually. I think they're interesting and well styled. The are unwearable for me, at least the 01 variants (46mm). They look and feel like I've strapped a desk to my wrist. The value proposition is way off. Other aviation centered brands (Breitling, Bremont) offer a much better value.

"semi-skeletonized inner dial" becomes unintentional humorous in this case. As for the watch itself, it's awful.

I think Bremont missed an opportunity to style the winding rotor to look like a B2. The swept back wings and rounded nose are almost there.
I am a fan of the brand and this one, pleases me as well. I think the GMT hand gets lost too easily, but it's easy to get carried away with the "stealth" ethos I guess. I'm rather surprised at the narrow price gap between the entry level Solo model and this one.

I am not generally a fan of gold, two-tone watches, skeleton dials or crazy prices, but WOW!, I love this. Great writing and photos too. I really enjoyed this. Feel free to pass it along for a "special reader review article"

Dayum - those are tiny hands. Nice price for what you're getting. I wonder what aftermarket hands would work?

I echo the "get a Casio" for $100 sentiment, but I applaud Tissot for getting over the "let's make it look like a brake disc, dashboard, tire, caliper, car / bike" part thing. This one sure doesn't look like a $500 watch. Not that most $500 watches look all that fantastic, but, seriously, I have far cheaper watches that look nicer than this one.

@Ulysses31 LOL your comments are often better than the article.

I love the brand and own several. While I understand the need to protect one's intellectual property, I HATE, hate, hate, the REG TM engraving on the face of the crown guard. I could live with it on the back-side and it would serve the same purpose and not deface the watch.

Not sure I like a sponsored poster defining what makes a serious collector. like lightningslim, I don't buy vintage, or "significant" watches. My most expensive watch is well under $10K. I own perhaps a hundred watches I really like. Most are under a grand. I am not a wealthy individual, yet I collect, and I'm discerning, enthusiastic and "serious" about the hobby. I steadfastly refuse to acquire something I don't care for because it meets someone else's criteria for "collectible". Especially someone trying to sell vintage watches.

VSA is a great value brand. I own several since I just can't pass up a good deal. Some of their AirBoss models are my favorites regardless of cost, thy're just nice looking watches. I like this. It's nerdy / cool, and again, a heck of a value.

Ariel, The USN version is NOT for the US Navy. It is actually a collaborative piece with the "Usual Suspects Network" an avid tactical weapons (mostly knives) collector group / forum with over 20,000 members. They have done other pieces in prior years with CGA and LÜM-TEC.
The green goat-head tribal is their group logo. I would have made the same association error, had I not been part of the development process on the Minuteman line.

If I wanted an awkward, unreadable watch, I'd just get something off of Tokyoflash and save a few ten thousand dollars.
