    Neat! Not for me. But that might change, I could warm up to it. Display is cool. Bracelet brushing is of the type I prefer the most.

    It looks like the dot matrix effect is only when you activate the OLED backlight. It's certainly appealing, but quite pricey. It's the only 100m water resistant could well swing it for me.

    Perhaps way too early, but how much would used ones be discounted, when the novelty wears off?

    The red-tinted, always on LCD with the tiny dot OLEDs behind it is genius, as is the 100m water resistance.

    I was all in for the Bulova Computron until realizing how little the display looked like the original. This one might take some saving up to make happen, though.
    the always on-display is key for me. i bet it will be a hot seller. love that sapphire

    Isn't that almost verbatim what most people say when they first learn that you're into mechanical wristwatches? Oh, the irony...

    I dunno, y'all, I've got nuthin' but full on love for the PSR. It sounds like it's a little thicker than it could be but that may be by design and ultimately part of it's charm. The price doesn't seem unreasonable and I love the modern updates like the sapphire crystal, 100 meters of water resistance, retro but modernized display, and that bracelet. And, did I mention that bracelet?!

    Wear that which you feel is groovy, get down with your bad self, and shake your money maker if it makes sense for you to do so.

    Way would you need 100m of water resistance on this type of watch?

    I dunno, but according to some WUS members that is the minimal water resistance required for washing your hands with your watch still on your wrist. (Please place irreverently smirking emoticon here.)

    I think it is 50m for breathing while looking at your watch, 100m for sweating, 200m for hand washing, and 300m for swimming.

    Thanks to my little ones, I've taken a fair few impromptu swims through the years. 50m is fine for my life, but I'm not going to turn down the extra resistance.
