    Mike,

    Not warming to it.

    Good specs, nice idea with the all lume dial, but its a bit....plain. Also, the dial looks undersized - or the case looks too big. Can't make up my mind but the amount of steel around the dial seems out of proportion for me.

    Sorry.

    Meh....

    I think its really ugly.... harsh opinion, I know.

    Like Doc said.. nice specs.. asthetics needs a complete overhaul.

    It is okay. I don't think there is anything new here that makes me want to have that watch. I say a thumbs down.

    Grind. Case and bezel compared to the dial somehow not proportional.

    Nice excercise but ...

    ... that bezel smells like Rolex Yacht Master.

    I'd say, lose the bezel and maybe there is something nice there.

    I like the specs, as others said. I like the raised bezel numbers, the all lume dial, the clean complete numerals on the dial -but I think the typeface is far too thin and delicate for the bulk of the watch, and the proportions of the case and bezel don't go together. It's way out of scale on those points.

    Luminova is good idea but the chrono dials make the watch look
    more like a £9.99 special off a street market, the design doesn't do anything for me
