So yeah, I'm gonna be "that" guy...
The luminor debuted in 1950, so 6.3 decades ago to be precise, but certainly not some 5 decades...
I enjoy the brand, and actually own a few, but I'm not a fan of the brand's fandom and the absurd pricing. A manually wound two-hand watch in steel with a plastic crystal for more than $11,000 (with tax) is clearly unrelated to the intrinsic value of the components. Now, THAT's the deal-breaker.

Guys check out my new $107,000 Mr. Nutsack watch. Nope. MB&F is quickly becoming my least favorite watchmaker. I read MB&F and think WT&F.

What a chubby watch. I never guessed 44mm from the opening photos.. I think the disc is super easy to read, but $8K for a glorified GMT hand is pushing too far. Their far more complex Capeland Flyback Chrono is less. The face seems crowded and isn't getting any relief from the giant branding and movement billboards, The Tourneau exclusivity is the final nail in the coffin

Blue for the win! I don't like many crazy concept watches, but this one just makes me happy.

Wholly crap! Even MB&F would think this is over the top.

Octagons - I just hate 'em. This Vulgari is no exception. It's a nice movement trapped in an unfortunate case.

Meh - They all look like a waffle iron screwed to a stop sign to me anyway, so here's an all white version of the same old shi... with expensive ceramic masquerading as plastic. For me, it's a NO on every level.

Good God, it's stunning, sort of like seeing a plane crash.

The backside looks fantastic, the front, is not as successful. I'm a little confused about the operation of the internal aneroid capsule. Does this mean the watch is open to external air pressure - i.e. no water resistance?

I'm sure it's just me, but these bezels have always brought to mind the gloss black bakelite toilet seats you'd seen in airports some time ago. Thus I've never been much of a fan.
Dear Omega, Accept my heartfelt concern over your recent mental breakdown. Please know that despite the absurdity of your recent actions, there are still people that care about. you. There are plenty of clinical services and medications that can put you back on the road to recovery. Please don't give up hope.

@Seamaster300 Luddites like you must think all they do is open Solidworks and hit the "Make Watch" button. I'm pretty sure your revered "old school" watch makers used every technological advantage they could muster. Has CAD packages and computer controlled production equipment been available during their time they'd have exploited it too. CAD Software is not designing the watch, it's merely a "sharper pencil".

Yep - polarizing. You either don't care or hate them. I'n not convinced there's a market for a goofy looking, cheaply made watch with a thousand-dollar price tag.

The HUGE CROWN will come in handy when I need to set my watch while I'm flying my open cockpit bi-plane wearing thick aviator gloves. Which is to say, never. I get it - retro inspired and all, but retro inspired cars don't have a hand crank and chain drive just because they did it that way in 1902. With sensible proportions, this might actually be desirable, wearable and likely better looking.

PAM 510 + € 5,890 (= $ 7,990) I thought they were overpriced before. Jeezus.

Neat - if only it weren't so damned stupid looking. G&F make great mechanics, but the styling, Yeesh!
