When you use a manufacturer error as a marketing tool
It's odd to me that they chose a base reference where the minute track is actually in the correct place (eg outside the hour markers).

If you are creating an unusable watch, you may as well leverage your trademark inner minute ring to add that extra oomph of style over design.

Mb&f perp cal and Gronefeld both **** out at the sothebys auction a few days ago.

Pretty cool if the perp cal gets under 100k used.

Of ones you listed I love the titanium Yachtmaster, and I've never been interested in that model before until they offered it in that metal. I would have loved to see Rolex unveil something else in titanium, like the new GMT with the black and gray bezel, rather than simply adding one more steel model.

The gold Overseas with green dial looks nice, but some how as other's mentioned it already feels like they were a year or so late to the green dial party. Plus, I can't help but wonder if it would look better with yellow gold, or a less rose colored gold. Perhaps if they did something like the "Sand gold" that AP recently unveiled.
I really agree on the titanium yacht. one of the watches my AD has told me 0% chance. At least they’ll lie to on other pieces.

Some truly tragic releases this year, but this is a special kind of awful.


Design brief: “Start with a Hublot and then make it uglier, much uglier…”
The fact that they are priced above $11k is… a head scratcher.

I kind of like them, not $11k like them, but at like $6k...

The pricing somewhat makes sense relative to the price of the regular Defy Skyline at $9200. Same movement, 500m more water resistance, a ceramic rotating bezel and an additional strap. Of course the price of the regular Defy Skyline is a questionable basis.
