    I said I quite liked the RO but I don't like the ROO.

    It isn't just that it looks like an ROO, it is just so tasteless and completely lacking a coherent design.

    What is it with these Brands just ripping off other brands lately?
    Is there no creativity left?

    I guess leadership teams in these companies don't allow anyone to be daring or creative. Based on market research they know what sells and try to stay within that recipe.

    I know, I should shut the fuck up. If only my income would have increased with 42% in the same three years...

    Favourite release for me. 2021 Explorer 2. So refreshing to see a complete change in design, bringing it bang up to date with the times. Makes the previous one look trash.

    If it ain't broke, then don't fix it I guess.

    I think the criticism doesn't apply for Rolex either way since they are doing their own designs, not copying what others do that sell well.

    I think what Rolex is doing is so admirable. Creating true timeless classics that will live through many generations.

    ^ agreed, but my (sarcastic) reference was to possibly the laziest update they’ve ever done

    I like both, but I think the black one would be the one to get.

    I really like the new Tudor Chrono Panda, but still worried about its size and thickness. However, it does seem like Tudor has implemented some tricks (like seating the movement lower) to make the watch seem slimmer than its 14.4mm thickness. Compared to the 11.9mm thick BB58 in this pic, it doesn't look that bad. (Pic credit to mallen161081)

    Will need to try one on the wrist before making a final judgment.

    I'm waiting to hear back from local AD to get a time to go in and try it on also. Once I'm there I will send you some pics on the wrist.
    I'm still leaning towards the black dial.

    This must be the only watch forum where the AP Black Panther hasn't been discussed. So here it goes ;)

    I guess it's no stupider than any other ficitional character, like James Bond for example.
