Ok, I had more time to think/read about this watch and still need to see it in person however:
1) Price. It's too expensive in my opinion. I wouldn't feel I was getting my monies worth if I were to buy it even at grey market prices (assuming 20%). I wont go in to detail, but it has been mentioned in this thread as to value and I don't disagree.
2) The Arrow has to go on both dial and case back.
3) HE crown.. yah yah, it's not going anywhere but seriously, it is stopping me from buying any other SMP's although I adore my 2254.50 and I consider it a permanent resident in my collection. I guess I have that one exception. Without the crown I probably would excuse the arrow?
3a.) Come to think of it, I think the HE crown is why I have three AT's and 1 SMP vs the other way around. Who knows...
All that being said.. even though I am probably in the minority on this, I love the way it looks for the most part. I know Fauxtina is the devil now-a-days, but I don't mind it on this watch.
