    Obviously the Robb Report doesn't think it is under embargo.

    Nope. The image you posted was tagged #robbreportau, so I assume they know and posted it somewhere. Instabook or some other social media guff I don't use.

    I reckon root beer would suit this style as well.

    Looking forward to the Monaco today. Surprised though that it's being shown now not 2019

    I remain of the opinion that the autavia gmt is an early April fool or the work of a lone madman

    All those photos two pages back, are they using some odd lens or something - they all look really tiny, the Autavias look about 37mm and thin as a 2000 series...

    Also, I wonder how much they are intending to price the Calibre 5 Autavia at? Given a Calibre 5 Aquaracer (Explorer II) can be had for well under £2000 it's going to be hard to justify more than £2500 surely?

    Exactly my thoughts ! If they set the price right even if it doesnt necessarily hold a superior movement, i think it can be a hit. Which i doubt. I think it will still be expensive for autavia non chronograph. But we'll see.

    Ha, ha! This looks like the happy face of someone who has just bitten into a sh1t sandwich which about sums up of this year's releases.

    Like the way this looks both retro and modern at the same time. Very nice.
