Design is a subjective matter in any case. To my eyes many watch designs are tacky - including some which are darlings among the commentariat - but not this one. I have no problem with people calling it feminine...I have nothing to prove regarding my masculinity and certainly don’t need, say, an oversized brash watch to do so...although it would seem there are many men who do!

In this price bracket many like the Octo Finissimo, which has a nice movement and of course the whole record-breaking thinness but a much simpler case finish.

Yes everything else is subjective..
But the movement, I think all can agree it is a disappointment. Specially given Chopard capability.. such a pity. First thing I did was comparing this model with the Traveler One at the boutique. They have the same base movement and similar prices (regard...
HNY to you too. And thank you for checking it out! Agreed re your observations. Hmmm. We must get together soon to discuss - it’s been too long... Best E.
