Ha, I can't believe they used Times New Roman on those subdials. What is it with modern Patek and default commodity-box fonts? While I don't have the same level of objection on principle with TNR as I do with Arial (since it's at least not a fee-dodging knockoff), I'd expect better than something that almost as strongly evokes office drudgery and is about as ubiquitous due to Windows.
That sort of lazy typeface selection was one of the things that bugged me about my Reverso GMT, too. JLC uses it a lot (especially on the Duometre line that we're discussing), but I haven't noticed it on a on a Patek until now. Even worse, the amateurish numbering around the main dial is done in some kind of oddly squashed mismatch of serifs and sans-serifs, too.
Your typeface arguments are leaking into my offline life. Someone wanted me to buy a shirt for charity and the only thing I could think of was, "Why did you use 3 different fonts in the design?" It also bugs me when some friends show us their new "art" which is just a picture of some motivational saying with each word in a different typeface. Nice people, horrible taste is art and design.
