    Wow I can see how you'd like it, appealing to me too. Agree on the money part also though . . .

    I don't dislike the watch - although I don't find it that special - and I'm certainly not an inhouse snob in any conceivable way, but for 22K...no, thank you.

    When you consider that the Aquadive BS500 used the same movement (Vaucher Fleurier) and cost $3200 it really does make $22k look rather daft

    Nice design and casework, but too big for me at 44mm (and I think it would work better with a thinner bezel, the caseback proportions would work better too). The pushers would be too tempting to play with.

    Oh he's good. However, you can get a Davosa 7750 chrono for 1k, yet panerai charge 7k for a watch with the same movement with the chrono function removed! Funny old game innit.

    Yeah. It's not like I'm reeling back in horror or anything, it's just not that special looking of a watch; and then when you add in the ridiculous price, it really loses its attractiveness.
