Will they dare to make one like this but with a more reasonable diameter, like 43mm? Does the warranty cover bending the whole watch?

" Wade’s commitment to excellence..... parallels Hublot’s vast achievements in fine watch making."
Do I detect a note of sarcasm there? You have to pity the poor unfortunates who have to write this stuff for a living. It would not be surprising if they found a way to exact revenge. "Furthermore, Hublot makes the bestest watches in the US, the world, the solar system, the galaxy, well the best in Miami anyway."

@Fraser Petrick Normally it is easy to deal with this. You just say, "No more watches for me.... or shoes or handbags for you. As for diamonds.... hahha!"
But *my* wife doesn't like me to spend big on *her* either. Now *that* is a problem.

Love those plates on the back, covering 85% of the movement. Come on, can't you make it 95%?

@MarkCarson @Zeitblom Well, I'm always prepared to be educated. Show me a watch with enamelled flowers on the front that doesn't look tacky, hideous, or both.
Of course, there are worse things... I saw a watch with a *mosaic* flower design....
The best thing would be not Andy W but rather Munch's "The Scream".

That part about enamel dials with flowers makes me depressed. All that incredible skill, patience, even stamina..... to produce something that is invariably tacky, hideous, or both.

I can just see someone wearing one of these into an MRI machine to test it out. "But Omega said it was fine in a magnet!" he said, as they tried to stitch his hand back on.

I never understood the bronze diver thing.... until now. It looks great [on leather of course].

@Ulysses31 You are being very unfair to Miley C. I can think of one thing she might be useful for. That's one more than these watches.
Meanwhile, my opinion of Ferraris and their owners just took a nosedive....

@Grinnie Jax And there you have final proof that time machines are physically impossible. Because if they were possible, preventing the rolex sub from coming into existence would have been item 1 on the inventor's list. Well maybe 2, after the day date.

Never thought I would ever say this about any Omega other than the ploprof.... but I like it. Something different. Nice and thick the way God intended watches to be made. Just hope it is as heavy as it looks.

@MarkCarson @aBlogtoWatch Poetic Wish Thor?! You really ought to post warnings before letting innocents like me see that! Remember: once something has been seen, it cannot be unseen.....

"In fact, Van Cleef & Arpels once shared with me that during an internal study of its existing clients, an interesting piece of feedback was that their products had the ability of humbling even very successful people."
ROFL!! I'd love to know how they found that out! "Excuse me, very successful person, do you feel humiliated by our hyper-tacky ludicrously expensive looks-like-it-was-bought-at-Paris-Disneyland pieces?"
But actually this particular watch is not too bad, and the bracelet is indeed very interesting. I'm *still* laughing at their "poetic wish" garbage, strong contender for the tackiest watches ever made [though Bulgari's "commedia dell'arte" things run them close], but maybe there is hope for them yet. Maybe.

@MarkCarson Actually I too took a guilty liking to this thing. But after a while I realised that I like it because it looks like a good chunky old dive watch. If Zenith themselves put a case like this [but with nothing on the bezel] around the El Primero, I'd be seriously interested. A cross between a dive watch and a dress watch.

@Gabechambers Well you know that coin collectors don't actually spend their coins, so this non-functional model is like that. This will appeal to all collectors of shiny objects, such as jackdaws.

That's a nice looking dive watch. But for some reason I can't read the numbers on the bezel.
" It isn't a watch for everyone, but as we stated in our original review, the watch is exceptionally well done for what it is."
This is a very useful phrase, I am going to appropriate it. Next time somebody shows me their horrid Rolex day date with the squashed bottle-cap bezel and the old-folks-home Cyclops, instead of saying, "What a POS!" and offending them, I will just restrain my shudders and say, "Umm... it's exceptionally good... for what it is."
