I have the old version, and honestly, it's a really FUN watch! I got it from a Patek/Rolex AD a few years ago (and back then it was easy to get anyway), so I'm not sure of wait lists today..
...but hopefully it won't take as long as a Daytona, or Pepsi, etc.. It is HUGE and obviously unnecessary in our daily lives, but again, I love it every time I wear it! And the newer version is even nicer, in my opinion ;-)
Here's for comparison, on my Korean girlfriend's small wrist and on my Italian wrist ;-)
