It's almost too easy to get this right

A simple, been-done design, reminding me of William Massena x Habring's recent LE from XXzone.com   I liked that watch and I like this watch but at the same time... zzzzzzzzzz. (so what). I guess it's nice for new buyers who see a classic design for the first time? But... it's uninspired to my eyes... rather have the XXzone LE, but not really into that one either. A lot of these vintage watches these days are like 'cheating'. Like putting trace-paper over a Rembrandt... copying it exceptionally well, yet having no soul... hard to not like/admire... yet.... the heart beat does not quicken.

New buyers will be happy anyway, and Longines is going to sell lots of these. Vte

It definitely a watch to consider

Was this a prototype, or a functional model? What’s your wrist size, if you don’t mind me asking? The brushed steel case looks darker (almost titanium-ish), and I winder how thick the watch is in real life

I wish the brands would make more like this
