    Thoughts on Epos 3391 Moon?

    Interested in forum members' thoughts on this watch. There's a lot that I find appealing. It's distinctive, I love the starry background, dial color , and geometric design elements. The placement of month and day is a little funky. At <$2000 it seems like respectable value for a decorated ETA2892 with Dubois Depraz complication too. Roughly Longines standard, but at a lower price?
    My reservations: I'm not convinced the modern dial sits well with the classical case; it seems redundant to label "month" , "day" and "moon phase " on the face, and I can't see it in the flesh here in Australia. There's a dearth of wrist pics on the web too.
    So what do you guys reckon? Anyone own this watch?

    There's something about the crown and the hard angles of the lugs that feels off to me, though I really like the look of the dial. I think what's putting me off is the lugs look minimalist and industrial, and would be perhaps better suited for a more rugged watch, while the cushion-like crown and the overall look lean in an elegant/dress-watch direction.

    I usually find moonphase watches to be a bit busy but have to admit I like this take on the moonphase. Clean and elegant..

    I think the dial looks fantastic. A little better in the second pic than in the relatively lifeless first pic. The askew angles are a nice touch, although I agree the labels are superfluous. The overall feeling is energetic and interesting. The case doesn't quite live up to the promise of the dial, but it's not terrible by any means.

    I might be reluctant to purchase it if I couldn't see it in the flesh, but overall it seems like a reasonable price point.

    I'm not troubled by the 2892 really. Plenty of far more expensive watches ( Breitling anyone?) use it. Longines is happy to charge $3000 or so for 2892s with a similar level of complication.

    Has possibility but that moon phase indicator is tiny. With the thrust of the watch so clearly celestial, I'd rather see a more prominent moon
