    Did you buy one? I really like it over all, especially the case back, I think it's particularly stunning! The only complaints I have against it are that the sundials cut off the numbers with is a negative trait to me, and the crooked date. I'd prefer no date to crooked date. But that is one sweet looking watch overall!
    Current: Seiko 5 SNGZ71, Seiko SKX007, G-Shock G9000-1V

    Grail: Omega SMP 300 or Planet Ocean Orange Bezel

    Admitted Seiko fan!

    Don't they do a date wheel with "slightly rotated" numbers for watches/instances like this with the date in the 4:30 position? , seems like a fairly easy matter for the manufacturer to change out the date wheel for "rotated" numbers, spin the date hole round again to level and bob's your uncle, horizontal numbers again ?
    Nice watch but the date just looks odd like that

    Great looking watch, although I would prefer it without a date. It just looks cluttered with the date stuck in there.

    Just one quick remark....the case back in the picture it's not from the black Chronograph also pictures (First pic it's from a 3 hands watch...pushers are missing)

    Ths black Chrono in the picture has a Longines L688 movement like this: (even more stunning)

    The placement of the date completely spoils the face.
    It looks as though it was placed there as an afterthought.
    "Boss, we left out the date"
    "Whoops, let's just squeeze it in between 4 and 5 o'clock. No-one will notice"........

    Longines is a great brand with some great watches... I bought my wife one once and she loves it and it runs great year after year.... Personal opinion is this is way busy...... but my biggest criticism is the way the main dial numbers are cut away to make room for the sub dials... What the????? ..... Mind you though there some serious high end brands to do this as well... I just don't get it.................... I'm repeating an earleir post.....

    I agree, stunning watch with a bad date implementation. It's not the angle or placement for me - it's the black on white characters instead of making the date color match the rest of the dial.
