Yep. Nothing beats a simple time-only piece.

Dear all, Just wanted to share this piece (not mine, yet, but am seriously considering pulling the trigger on this one) Haven’t really seen many of these around since it’s launch in 2014! This particular one is in yellow gold! Would love to hear some comm...  

Go for it !

Any more snaps?

Looks like a stunner. I don’t see many of these around. What’s making you hesitate to take the plunge?

Well..

For starters I usually wear my watches on my right as I’m left handed! Thus this might take some getting used to.. Then well essentially it’s a db28 digitale in a different case for more than twice the price..thinking if the difference in case work would ... 

Love the design, a very beautiful and intriguing watch! But I do agree with your reservations on this one...

The lack of significant complication and no transparent case back leaves me a bit cold. I'd also be terrified of scratching/denting the case. As others have said though, there's nothing else like it and I don't think you can't go wrong either way!

My dream watch

But not in gold.

Beautiful

Perfect hand sizing and skin tone match

I like it!

Looks straight out of StarTrek, in a good way

Spectacular!

Whoa, what a spce ship... Personally, I am with brauner here and would prefer a Pt or Ti version of this watch. If gold is what makes you smile, go for it! I mean, with a piece like this there are no real alternatives to consider... Best, Daniel

As a long time fan and collector of the Indies(mb&f, FPJ, VH etc), I’m just thinking if this would give less ‘value-add’ to my collection than say a PP comp! World of difference I know..but just a dilemma I’m having!

I don't know your collection, but...

 
 By: mrds : February 16th, 2021-09:11
I'd say the fun you get from a DB5 will be one of a kind, while a PP complication is more of "another great watch" kind of thing. Not to say that one is better than the other, but it's two different things. Of course, if your drawer is full of MB&Fs, Urwe... 

Can you please share with us what you like about it?

I’m not very familiar with this piece. Thanks.

More a piece of jewelry than

a watch, at least in the looks, so quite fitting for a woman imho. Although this watch is not small, it looks no way too big on your wrist. I like your ring, btw.

A true masterpiece and dream watch .

I have tried it on the wrist when I visit DB a few years ago . Such a amazing and spectacular watch .

Let’s go crazy

 
 By: Weems@8 : February 16th, 2021-14:39
My thoughts What a futuristic object is it? A watch that is 10 centuries ahead of what we know today! Other thoughts. MBandF is another creator of strange objects for the wrist.

That thing is a spaceship 💥🔥

So... I am going to be the another devil advocate here and say go for it!!

 
 By: Spencer Karrington : February 17th, 2021-01:56
It is an amazingly unique and awesome watch!! altho, it would be cool if you got one of the artist varients, like this one! ...  

Exactly!

 
 By: Spencer Karrington : February 22nd, 2021-08:16
And just to make sure, are you talking about this one? ...  

This one

 
 By: mrds : February 22nd, 2021-11:24
... just makes me speechless. I‘m a simple guy.

Lolz, I can dig it!

 
 By: Spencer Karrington : March 1st, 2021-14:32
Although, even this one is quite the complicated simple watch :p

I can totally dig that!

 
 By: Spencer Karrington : March 5th, 2021-11:47

I love it!

 
 By: Brandon Skinner : February 17th, 2021-14:55
Not too long ago I shared the recent version of this watch whose case was done up in a Dia De Los Muertos style. I thought that watch was cool, but if it were me I would elect to choose a cleaner version such as this. I would LOVE to see this watch around... 

Reminds me of the streamlined cars of the 1930s

 
 By: jmpTT : February 17th, 2021-19:51
There’s a real warm beauty to this watch and, like the finest aerodynamic luxury cars of the pre-war period, if feels as though it belongs to a future imagined one lifetime ago, a future that never quite came to be.

wow...beautiful case & quite futuristic....

 
 By: mahesh : March 13th, 2021-03:41
it looks great on your wrist... Best, mahesh.,

A little update..

 
 By: doml : March 15th, 2021-22:53
I did end up taking this beast back home! And I must say I’m loving every minute of it! Here’s it on my wrist today! ...  

Huge congrats!

 
 By: amanico : March 15th, 2021-23:54

Oh and the back too..

Congratulations!!!

Definitely a dream machine!
