Beam me up Mimo! -- You know, I just can't get over how much better the lume on my $250 Seiko is compared to my Omega and my Rolex. What's the deal with the Swiss?
Yeah, with athletic shoes. Or loafers, I suppose..
Thanks for the kind words @mimo   Yeah @ShawnBC, it's going to be hard as hell for them to crack that segment without doing something pretty amazing. The company is doing another watch with Italian marble dials and center links, which is a bit more unique than the review models they sent out to mimo and myself.   But when you consider what you can get from the likes of Seiko or Orient at a similar price point...

I was thinking about some new tires. I opted for that stupid tire and wheel protection plan. Maybe I should jam a screw in one...
At the end of the day, almost all divers are Submariner derived. Sure they may have square or toothed indices or extra-wide hands, but they're not fooling anyone... That's why I support Seiko Starfish divers. They don't look like anything else.
But seriously, in the PMW category, how much uniqueness can one hope to find?
