    Or fly in a 787 Dreamliner doing 1000Km/hr at 41,000 feet, its just plastic holding the shell together.

    Sorry, I cant get over the plastic factor, especially for the high prices. I do not buy into the special polymer marketing, sorry. I know there are plastic firearms that perform well etc., I have a Smith and Wesson M&P 9mm, that I really like but cannot accept it in a high end watch, Just my 2 cents.

    Regards,

    I like the way it looks but I don't know if I would pick it over a traditional case.

    So no problems in a real gun that can kill people, or a Boeing, but in a premium quartz watch..?

    It looks exactly like what they use for Luminox and Trasers, which is also advertised as having all the properties of this material (scratch resistant, stronger than steel, lighter than titanium, etc.). I won't argue with all that about guns and airplanes and polymers and plastic, but it is simply too lightweight for me. I like a watch with substance, especially if it is a Breitling! In fact, I am wearing my titanium SMP today, and it is too light. That's why I generally pull out my Rolex or Breitling Colt or Aquaracer first. They have substance!

    Like I said its my opinion, I think plastic is fine for a cheap watch like a Timex Ironman, heck I even own a mostly plastic Casio Frogman but it was not thousands of dollars. In my opinion high end watches and plastic cases no matter how the companies try to twist it (Super duper polymer, space age carbonite, ....) at the end of the day its still plastic and when it comes to high-end watches for me at least it better be made out of metal. YMMV.

    The only doubt I have is the ruler band. But that's easy fixed. This would look nice on a textile strap I think. Any clue about the prize yet?

    Yeah, I love they market it as some high tech new technology. It is plastic and there are plenty of Co's making them and 1/8 of the price. The Swiss watch luxury market is all about brand recognition especially in a model like this.

    How in the world is this a $2k watch considering what it is? It is a handsome watch but so are so many of the independent competition.

    $899.00 and the premium for the name brand would be spot on for me.
