Not a vintage piece, but a decade has passed...
...and I had not put it on for a while, but recently took it out of the box and have been having it on for a bit. I think there has been at least 2 upgrades to the UN Diver Chrono family line since then. After a decade and the new watches since, I must admit that I have actually grown fonder of this timepiece, particularly its "smaller" size (compared to the newer watches), notwithstanding some design "limitations" mentioned in the forum around the time of its release. It nicely at 42.7mm, although a little thick (the "smaller size" is noticeable when I switch from a 44mm UN diver). The chronograph movement is preferred for me in that the minute counter jumps rather than track the chronograph second hand, given the smaller subdial size (compared to say, the Grand Feu Annual Calendar minute counter subdial).
Looking back a decade, just wondering what the thoughts are from anyone out there who owns or has handled this timepiece compared to the current UN diver or diver chronographs. Although deemed a bold (and possibly polarising) design at the time of its release, compared to the latest diver, I think this holds more of UN's diver DNA than does the latest iteration of UN's diver watch.
Just a late Thursday afternoon "rant" to dis-engage from the office work.
Pretty good for office wear too...
Thanks for dropping by.
Have a good weekend ahead.
