I was just searching through threads on the MBII. Mainly looking for pictures. I came across this link:
It's dated 2011. It got me thinking. What is the typical lifecycle of any watch design, and what are the chances of a refresh on the MBII? Seamasters and Subs, both wildly successful and iconic watches for their respective brands, are updated every decade or so...so why not this one?
It would drive me nuts to finally pull the trigger, and then have the watch change for the better, minutely or very dramatically, in the next year or so. The case lines might change. Maybe the dial font and layout are toyed with. The manufacture movement finally breathes to life!
The 500 range of divers from Bremont just experienced a bit of an overhaul. I believe the Alt series, which I don't particularly follow, has too. I'm only guessing that the MB's are the bread and butter of the brand, and if it ain't broke...
But could you see such a thing happening? Should it?
PS: adding an Aquamarine center barrel color option, or any other color for that matter, isn't the change I'm talking about.
