Horological Meandering: Even today I see this watch listed by Casio under “women’s G-Shock.” They might be missing a trick here.

As for spending $30,000 on a watch: I’d much rather put that money into buying something that made sense for me. The RO doesn’t. It was once an iconoclast: it broke convention and made the future. Now it’s the opposite - a so-called icon - which by definition represents the past. The past of course

Independents: You're right that there are (a) dial, (b) case and (c) movement aesthetics to consider, and for mechanical watches all three together

The watch pictured above a humble mechaquartz so direct comparisons can be made for (a) and (b). For (c) it is likely superior to any mechanical watch in terms of timekeeping accuracy, while being plain to look at. It offers performance if not soul.
