    I do not own one, I have only handled a couple in boutiques and read about them on here. I think they make some of the best looking luxury watches hitting the market today. Their designs just seem to tickle my fancy.

    I believe the movement in that one is noted by MB as a MB movement, which is realistically a modified ETA movement. This is not a bad thing, more of an observation, in case true in-house movements are a determining factor for you. ETA makes some great movements FWIW.

    The fit and finish on newer MB's is outstanding IMHO. Older ones are sometimes considered suspect on WUS, but you are talking new, so that is not a concern. The new ones are very nice watches that are finished nicely and should hold up well.

    Speaking to value, that is completely up to discretion of the purchaser lol. I cannot say what I would be comfortable paying for one, but I can definitely say that I would gladly own one.

    If you take the plunge, please be sure to post up pics and a review!

    I also like the white one and the blue on the band really goes.

    ETA or Sellita in that one, yes.

    The grey one is a bit more sporty with its orange touches. My preference goes to the white one

    Here are some other pictures of the first, for a review I made in Feb.

    I have the special edition with white face and blue contrast stitching. I'd say the finish is outstanding on them. Just keep in mind it's a base ETA movement, but that's what alot of other manufacturers use and i don't think there is anything wrong with that. Mine just sits in the safe, too many others to wear :)

    General sizing rule is that the lugs shouldn't be wider than your wrist. That's a general rule of thumb, however you have to wear what you like and what you think looks good. At the end of the day who cares what other people think as it's your watch and your wrist. I can swallow a 44mm Panerai without any trouble and i won't wear anything smaller than 41m/42m, but i know there are plenty of people who think the new 42mm standard is huge. I can't stand anything less than 40mm. All the 36mm Rolex's, yuck in my book.

    Pricing wise, i think they offer a solid value for the money, it's got some of the best finishing i've seen in a sub 5k watch and there is nothing wrong with a reliable movement. It wears incredibly thin and the strap quality is top notch.

    The TimeWalkers have a very thin bezel and large dial with short lugs which makes them look bigger than they are. I have both a TimeWalker Chrono (43mm) and a Star Chrono (39mm) and I can say I enjoy the TimeWalker more to wear. The skeletonized lugs with matching skeletonized buckle (if you get the strap options, not the bracelet options) is very nice. I'm also a fan of the wok shaped case. It's very unique IMO, and I feel that in 50 years, the TimeWalker might be as iconic of a design as the Panerai look (it was the same person who updated the Paneria design that designed the TimeWalker cases).

    Besides the bezel, what's the difference between the UTC and GMT that MB used to offer?
