They are priced competitively after the inevitable 30 per cent discount.
Pansy. 43 for me. Should I consider a linen dial?
I do love that Galet Micro-Rotor with shameful passion.
Yes, I think we're saying the same thing on the glacial design evolution: it works - provided the design is coherent in the first place.  A Submariner or a 911 looks good because it's always looked good.  And even those conservative designers come out with the occasional innovation, be it an annual calendar or a Panamera (which is an ugly pic imho, but I digress).  Where I think MB are so far off is in trying so many completely different styles at once as their starting...
