Indeed, what u say is true
230 is a strange anniversary. They seem to be at a challenging cross-road now:
1) Branch into creating too many products that confuse and dilute the main line
2) Stay focused on tried and true products, keeping their product lineages pure
I hope they keep to the 2nd road, with a few incursions into new territories. Was quite surprised when they discontinued the 38mm Laureato. On the other hand, the Aston Martin piece is quite breathtaking.
