Now my curiosity is piqued.
Could it be that they are not TWAT approved?
Not a fan of either watch. 1. Too big. 2. RD - MOP dial and overly large text bug me. 3. FM - Some of his watches are neat, this one I don't care for.
I find my taste in watches are similar to my mother-in-laws taste in wine. "I won't know if I like it until I try it. I have a long list of wines I don't like".
Clearly RFX and I see things differently and neither of us will be able to convince the other of our respective positions. I believe we are both fine with that. If our Hublot discussion carried on for too long, I apologize for my part in it. If you find my posts bothersome or otherwise disagreeable, please feel free to ignore them.
RDs collection has always been kind of hit or miss for me. I really love non round dress watches, (none of my dress watches are round), but I'm kind of lukewarm on this one's dial (it might be more appealing if they nixed the minute track and small seconds). Also the size is a bit too much, as square and rectangular watches tend to wear larger than round ones. My favorite RDs are the Monegasque line. If my list of "Must haves" were complete...I would give some serious thought to picking up some version of the Monegasque.
FMs, just do not appeal to me.
With the date change yesterday, I have to comment on a function of my GMT that I love. You can independently change just the hour which makes changing the date a breeze since it doesn't have a quick set date. It also helps traveling and changing the time. The only issue I have is when the watch stops and I don't set the second timezone that it gets to be a pain but I wear it enough that it has only stopped a handful of times.
