I think it looks fantastic - It looks like someone actually gave a sh*t when they designed it.
The s/s one is nice too.
Yours adds a GMT function and spring drive. Not to mention the additonal finishing details. That is a whole different conversation.
Edit: also forgot titanium.....totally different watches.

This isnt the type of watch that could replace the Sumo, the Sumo although not that old is a classic, its an appealing watch, this Trans on the other hand i find very unappealing, their bezels look cheap as do most coloured bezels and its lost the classic diver feel imo, i also really dislike where the bracelet meets the case, just not appealing. its just another modern dive watch to me thats $400 overpriced but each to their own.
It seems there are a lot of design elements of the Transocean that seem to bring back to memory the Samurai....which is now being reintroduced, I think I like the Samurai better. It's also slightly more compact at 42mm.

PS: Though I do love the look blue faced Transocean!

The Samurai was an iconic diver, sure, but it was also scratch-prone, lacked hacking and couldn't be wound manually. Transocean line has ceramic bezels and anti-scratch coating. Of course, I can only speak for the Spring Drive models :)
