    2 New Japanese Models I Just Don't Like

    656 model with big red logo :-S


    103 with red bezel -Sinn meets Alpha Sawfish :-S


    I think both are limited to only 50 but I could be wrong.

    holy crap....a dial color other than black! Ok, ok I know they make the silver 303's and the blue Arktis, so I'm exaggerating a little. I like the white dial.

    Now, if they could stop printing "minuten" and "studen" on the subdials. I think we know how to read a 7750.

    The Japanese are said to have a certain crush for german language/words, so the additional writings make sense to me. The "Snn" on the 656 is some kind of overdone, imho.

    Hello,

    Well... I could live with the white dialed 103 even if I dont like it (looks cheapish IMHO) but what they did to the 656 is barbarous.

    Kind regards Philipp

    Would look actually nice if it were only a _little bit_ smaller.

    The 656 is amazing, really ... embellishing a watch that derives its appeal from the purity and clarity of its less-is-more design is a bold step indeed, and must be indicative of the intended target group's taste ... :-S
    Cheers,
