I like your sentiments, and find them right on the money.
I, too, have been waiting for a Speedy that mere mortals might afford ($10K and under—particularly under!) and while at first sight the color combo of this watch struck me as absolutely the best since the Apollo 45th Anni, Sedna Gold issue, when my eye hit the running seconds dial the love affair fell apart. "What were they thinking," indeed! First of all, the image is so small as to make disentangling just what is going on quite a struggle. And then the second's hand itself seems HUGE in relation (not to mention it therefore covers a good deal of the image)—the enormous difference in scale is jarring. (Hey, we two should have been at the board meeting, huh? But alas, they never ask us.)
So… no way I'll pine for this one. I appreciate your extensive, and well-presented discussion of the matter. I like!
Best regards, Fred Halgedahl
Oh… rats! This reaction was to "Flyinghell's" excellent post. If you haven't read that, you really should. (mutter, mutter)
I'll wait till the 100th if I'm still alive, but I won't be buying a Speedy with Buzz's butt on the dial.
enjoy the ride
I just plunked down a deposit on one (well, payment in full... I’m committed). I love it and can’t wait. Any rumors on a release date? Ahead of the actual July anniversary I assume.
