    I found the editorial wording for this watch to be rather humourous.

    Wolfensohn's Swiss Shock watch combines the iconic looks of the G-Shock with the accuracy of a Swiss mechanical movement.

    how to great hype, nostalgia and supply constraints without looking like rolex level manipulation but at the same time not seeming cynical. I.e they know how to Make and sell watches that people want. Or so it seems by their apparent rise back to glory.

    I don’t see the appeal myself. But I can clearly see how it appeals to others.

    I agree about it's legibility, or complete lack thereof, I was more pointing out the colourway and how it has been used.

    Price is largely irrelevant with a Richard Mille but it is a very reasonable US$215,000.

    Yes, although I do like the white dial with the Snoopy on it - but of course it's a bazillion pounds!

    When I see watches like this, give me a Carrera 2447 or Carrera 160, all day, any day. :p

    The original BB58 is a great watch. I always wanted a blue version right from the start, so am in the process of switching to that, but it was a very difficult decision to part with the black, and still not 100% sure I've done the right thing. Ideally would have both and I can't rule out repurchasing the black at some point. Aside from being the more visually interesting version, the advantage of the black is that it looks great on a lot of different straps. I would steer clear of the Tudor strap as it wasn't very comfortable. So annoying that the clasp on the deployant sits the wrong way around. I mostly wore mine on the bracelet and a brown Horween leather strap (don't have a pic of that unfortunately). But as I say, it looked good on anything really:

    Whichever version you pick, though, you are getting a fantastic watch, that is sized perfectly for pretty much anybody.

    1995 Breitling Transocean, I like this - back when Breitling still made 'forward looking' watches!
