Too far away from the vintage soul. A big fail for me, but it’s a question of taste. So if you like it… go. Best Ø

Diverse tastes are good for the watch industry .

I agree these are awesome. They should have used these for early marketing materials.

I also like it a lot! I feel because it is called "70th anniversary" many people think that it should have been more faithful to the original.

If we change the perspective slightly - it is a beautiful modern FF which celebrates that milestone. That's all. And it might be the best modern watch in the family given the perfect size and various small refinements. Unlike others I am not bothered by t... 

I totally agree with you on “changing perspective”.

I especially like the contrast between 3d lume and matte dark dial.

That's all the problem. You nailed it. If it was a FF like the others, it wouldn't suffer from the comparison to the originals. And it is too close to the 50th Anniversary.

It would have been great to have a nice homage to the original. With a case closer to the original ( see Air Command or Bathyscaphe ) and no date, as the date was on later FFs, from the 70's, not on early FFs. For those who don't pay too much attention to... 

Because I am eternal? :))))

Truly impressive!

I would have preferred without date, but this is beautiful in every respect. I even like the cool strap. I just didn’t realize it’s limited edition

Right, without the date will be a dream!

But I do use this function a lot.

Do you keep your date watches on a winder…

 By: ArmisT : January 12th, 2023-22:40
or just reset the date each time?

A beautiful watch!

A different strap can always be installed! And look at that finishing. For a serious dive watch, no dive watch has better finishing!
