The new dual time Renato got me thinking; I truly like every aspect of this watch in the various color combinations but the dual time is a deal breaker. I find it unattractive, impractical and hard to read.
Also, the new open heart for me is not a deal breaker but I am having a hard time liking it at the 12:00 position. I have been thinking hard about this but will probably let it sell out so I don't have to decide.

If a specific characteristic was not included in the poll please list.

I answered the combat look. I'm not into sameness of everything.

I like watches with the military lookbut having alike colors on a dial doesn't work for me. I had a triple black watch that was a real pain, having to tilt the watch to just the right angle so you can see the hands is ridiculous IMO. I went with the stealth look.

Because I cant pick one, I would pick almost all of the above. I wont own a watch with the following:

A Cyclops
Gems
Mesh
Dual time
Cluttered dials
Too much Texturing on the watch
A watch with different colored pushers AKA (Renato Diver)
As a whole with leather
Anything below 48mm

I feel the same Charlie, the bantering back and forth is what makes a watch forum fun! It's been way too long since you have insulted me.

This is the one I am the fence about...trying to convince myself that I can learn to like the "open heart" at 12:00.
Opinions?
Brutally honest is what I am looking for.....
