    Short hands syndrome all over again.

    A modern watch in a good size NEEDS good sized hands. Not leftovers from the SKX parts bin.
    How are they short? the minute hand is ALMOST to the chapter ring, it can't be much longer, and the hour hand looks to fill about 2/3rds to the chapter ring. looks fine.

    'Ruin?' Really?

    I mean, literally, ruin?

    Compromise, spoil, marr... all reasonable. But ruin as in destroy?

    No. Hyperbole overload :P

    As I've said before, once they discontinue Prospex, that logo will eventually make them more collectible.

    I'm a journalist. Hyperbole is my livelihood.

    And seriously, that logo does destroy the watch for me. It's irrational, I know, but I think it would be unwearable with that logo.

    As it stands, the dial makes it an almost-gorgeous but tragically flawed paperweight.

    I wouldn't buy it even it was a future classic - that's not why I buy and wear watches, sorry.

    I am a bit jealous that the logo doesn't bug you. I want to like this watch. Badly. But I can't. Small things matter a great deal for WISes, I guess.

    I feel your pain, I wouldn't dream of wearing any Orient because the logo looks like the branding off a cigarette packet. Fact.

    It genuinely doesn't trouble me whatsoever. It's unobtrusive to my eye but of course someone could say the same about the vile Orient / Philip Morris logo too.

    Tell me about it. But sadly, it works. You should see the disconnect between what people say, in reader surveys, they want to engage with - and what the analytics shows they actually click on. It is thoroughly depressing.

    Again, different strokes. I actually like the Orient logo. A lot.

    I have a solution - stop the watch at 18:30 and hide the 'X.' Use your phone to tell the time.

    I don't know why I didn't think of this before, I could do the same at midnight and own a clutch of Orients.

    If it's just the logo there are at least some Orients you could buy: the Orient Star line has a logo that is completely different.

    That's a fair point, Santho. Were I in the market for a dressy watch I'd certainly consider them.
