I get what you mean, but I don't mind watches being created to some very specific needs, like a Seadweller or Milgauss, even though I'll never have a need for their specific capabilities.
What I'm not a fan of, is when they take a watch like the Ingenieur and craps all over it's raison d'être and slaps on a display back. That's just sad. Then they might as well just make dive watches with bezels that doesn't turn and chronos with nonfunctioning sub dials.
For the same reason I'm not a fan of display backs on Speedy 'moonwatches' or on my own Luminor, though those aren't as
'y as the Inges. IMHO.
