    Love the crown , just about pulls it off.


    Not much more I like about the watch sadly, although I would take a non-chrono type 20 ......... for the right price

    Sorry, but yuck. Enormous, huge crown that just screams "embedded in the back of patient's hand" in the inevitable medical report after you accidentally bend your wrist back. Not a fan of the style either. The hands and numerals make it looks a bit blocky and inelegant.

    Interesting movement, though I'd still prefer not having a date at all.

    The pessimist says it can't get any worse while the optimist says it can.

    It really does look like one of those ungainly pocket watch conversions you see in Eastern Europe. Not nice.

    You should try it before commenting. I have the GMT and the crown nevers comes in contact with the wrist. The case is thick and the crown is very rounded and easy to grip. The watch is super comfortable if you can handle the size, it is big and wears big. It's a 48 and wears like a 50, it actually wears bigger than the auto Tuna.

    I've had watches smaller than that with crowns smaller than that dig into my hand. But I do wear my watch pretty near the hand, much closer to the wrist joint than yours appears to be.

    I agree with Cam. Just a bit over the top for me.
