What are peoples thoughts of this watch?

Way (way way) above my budget, but I thought it was a smart watch initially.

Seems to have a lot of technology inside it to make it look like one thing but actually be something else entirely.

Don't think I've seen anything else where the subdials move around the watch face before either (I'm sure @Karrusel will correct me if it has been done previously).

A wonderfully clever gizmo imo, an "orbital crownless regulator" no less, very slim considering the number of parts in the module sat on top of the movement, there's a good video here:

Great lume too.

Very cool indeed.

Its ok. Looks a bit like a toy. I do appreciate all the tech that has gone into this but for 13k I think I definitely would be looking elsewhere. Just looks like a smart watch from first glance and it looks like a nightmare to tell the time! Not quite got the appeal of regulator watches yet, although that Louis Erard a couple of posts up does look nice. The hand layout particularly.

I fully agree with the sentiments that it is ludicrously expensive, but in case anyone was in any doubt when a new microbrand called something stupid like Mandingo releases a Chinese powered version for £125, I'm going to be giving it a go. :laughing2dw:
