I'm with Belligero. I don't recall you posting anything but your own watches. Everyone else shows and discusses brands impartially, save for personal preference. It's a forum for enthusiasts, not for sales pitches. And the same GQ strapline and product shots we all ignored last time!

It's an acquired taste, for sure.

I believe that's just a lighting issue, and that the dial is simply all black (other than white markings of course). 

 

Edit: My bad...if it is actually two toned l'm...not a fan either.

He's been a bit busy with another hobby, photography.

1.  It is not an intro into the Watch space, it is an intro into the medical device space.  Look at all the Apple acquisitions and releases relating to health in the past couple of years.  
2.  The easiest place for such a medical device to alert the wearer is the wrist.
3.  3rd party app support plus more developments will allow the wearer to be alerted if something is outside of their normal bounds for that person.  Heart rate. possibly glucose checks in the future, alerts for medications, and I have personally run across this, medical research study push notifications to monitor to user of some new drug or to ask random questions, "How does X feel currently?"
4.  I work in the health care field and while this all sounds great, hospital IT moves at the pace of a snail so somehow incorporating this data into patient monitoring will take a while.  I am thinking at least 5+ years due to regulatory issues.

It just so happens that the thing tells time and they called it a watch that the WIS are up in arms.  They can allow it to do other things but I think the end game is to help people take better care of themselves medically.

Saw this and remembered your post.

He posted elsewhere that he has a new job that does not allow for much internet time, which has impeded his ability to stay active in all his usual haunts on SF.
