    I don't dislike the FOIS. However, I'm so used to the traditional Speedy looks for so many years, that when I tried a FOIS on, my brain must have read "different" and concluded "wrong"
    Anyway, it's a beautiful watch.

    I like the smaller dial and the slimmer lugs much better. But I should be fair and try on the Pro too. I suspect that the case is very similar if not the same as my PO.

    Guess we can say both cases share a lot of elements, but they're not exactly the same and wear differently. Still, both are very comfortable.
