    yeah I’ve had my SS PO three years (and worn it every day no matter the activity) and still wouldn’t consider that long term.

    Not sure it counts either if you don’t wear it all the time

    I was VERY gentle with the watch until now, only wore it at my desk and other 'light' activities. Whenever I thought there was a risk of damaging the watch, I switched watches.

    I think 3 months is a good review time, you really can know it by then.

    Thanks for the review.

    Great review - thanks. I found it interesting you don't notice the HEV. I just can't get over it when I see this watch in pics. I've only worn the previous version at an AD and it seemed to stick out quite a bit. Is this something you got used to, or just never noticed from the start?

    Yeah, it's a great watch!! I think it's really worth the £3200 I paid for it back in October. Yeah, I also don't really notice the HE valve it's the same as not noticing the date bulb on the Rolex watches.

    Thanks for posting! Don't know if three months is really long term but I appreciate that it's a true owner's perspective. I.e. not someone who just handled the watch for review purposes but never really lived with it.

    I much prefer this type of review.
