Maybe my next purchase, though like everyone on this forum any other opinions would be appreciated.
FYI - I usually wear SS diver/sports style watches such the Rolex GMT Master II, Rolex Submariner 5513, IWC Fliegerchronograph 3706, Omega Speedmaster Professional or my current daily basher the Omega Planet Ocean. The common theme is that they are all black face & wear with either SS bracelet or change to a leather croc strap (either black or caramel depending on what colour shoues I'm wearing & if I have teh time to swap over in the morning).
Lately I have noticed how common the watches I wear are on others, in particular in meetings etc. So I am looking for a change.
Maybe I explain my thinking..
What attracted me to this is the story & history behind the designer - a great talking/discussion point (just like using an unusual pen - everyone has a Mont Blanc..). Even better for me is that it not readily accessible, not because it is price prohibitive but the fact that it is a limited run & not readily available.
Aesthetically it is simple which is important - it is a time piece, so one should be able to read the face without second guessing (like so many watches today that are full of complications).
As for rarity, the first production was limited in numbers (1000) as well as never to be repeated. Unlike the likes of Panerai which in most cases are price prohibitive & release numbered runs of most models every year.http://www.giulianomazzuoli.com/
Sorry for the rant..
