Another taking it’s design cues from the NTTD Seamaster?
But it looks like the design committee couldn’t decide whether to have round hour markers or straight, bar hour markers...

At least they got the fitting of the bracelet right.  The gap left on the Omega is a major failing.

Agree, the gap is a big miss

Why do you think it's a miss? I have no strong opinion but I'm curious about yours.

I won’t speak for others, but if I’m paying $9k for a watch, I expect a certain level of precision in the finishing.

Exactly that.  It’s cost cutting and looks unfinished or like a generic bracelet has been added. It does hark back to the Sixties look though.

Yeah that is nearly nice, isn't it? The bezel is a bit Seamaster 300-ish, or maybe Blancpain, and there are definitely plenty of NTTD vibes, but it's not quite all pulling together, is it?
What's the point of a bezel without time indices? I do actually use my bezels.

I like their new one which is based on that one but without the dive bezel- looks like a bit of a Tudor Black Bay 36 homage, it's quite stylish. I think I'll go for the Tudor though, it's a nice looking watch, that.

Re: Watch Porn Wednesday

So, I understand that they are paying homage to an older, heritage design but in my opinion, they’re simply repeating their mistakes. I agree with emtiem, the whole package doesn’t work (for me).

Re: Watch Porn Wednesday

As the superOcean is from 1957, it‘s certainly wrong to accuse them for „taking design cues“ from the 2019 NTTD Seamaster.
It‘s more the other way round....

In 1957, supersonic speed and space capsules where the thing and the hour markers are inspired by that
At least Breitling did something very unique and different compared to the other makers.

And they managed in 1957 to avoid those lug gaps....

Anyone here have both the Brosnan Seamaster and Rolex Explorer 214270 (39mm)?  Would love to see a comparison of how they both wear on the wrist.

Yes, clearly they’ve looked into their back catalogue and not taken design cues from Omega.
But a good time to re-release this design. It’s also a lot cheaper than the Omega.

It's clear you're trying to start an argument again, but nevertheless, perhaps they dug around in their old history to find something that corresponds to a current craze.
And a bezel that doesn't make sense in 1957 still doesn't make sense today.

Re: Watch Porn Wednesday

The bezel is designed like that so that it can be used in the conventional way or as a countdown target.  This allows it to be used more effectively for a greater range of timing scenarios beyond being specifically a diving aid. As people today rarely use the bezel for diving and moreso for timing their cooking and parking etc, the design is more relevant today than it was back then.  As long as the wearer is  competent with the 5 times table, it’s very simple to operate without numerals.

Now if that had been in stainless steel I’d have been all over it.
