I am considering getting one of these to replace the 2599.80 that I may have to hand back to my wife (long story…)
The thing is that I’m a bit torn, being that both models are still available new from ADs.
I like the new 2018 SMP, it is a striking watch. However I sometimes get the feeling hat it might be too much so… I’m afraid that the new dial and hand design might be a bit too much, and start looking cartoonish to me after the honeymoon is over. And that HEV.... why did they have to make it so outstanding...
I appreciate the advantages of the new generation of movements, but I already have a SM300MC to somewhat quench that thirst.
I find that I like some design aspects of the older SMPc better: It’s significantly thinner, and the HEV is a lot less obvious. Besides the 2500 is a well proven movement with its 2892 legacy.
So what are your thoughts ? Any fans of the previous SMPc over the new one out there ?
