Fair enough I see where you are coming from.

Would require a whole new case design, would've thought they would keep it the same as the existing Aquitaine to keep costs down and then change the dial etc thereafter, I always find field watches a bit bland personally but look forward to seeing it!
One might argue coming out with a 38mm Aquitaine model is in keeping with the new push with smaller sizes. Maybe a 38mm field watch will be the vehicle through which they introduce a smaller case to the Aquitaine line? I think smaller size when I think field watch, so 38mm sounds good to me.

Seeing the Loupe images I feel like they are taking a liberal interpretation of field watch. Which is fine, but to me, it should have numbers and I'm guessing when most watch enthusiasts think field watch, it has numbers. And usually no date too. The Loupe images looked like they just took the rotating bezel off the Aquitaine.

That was my thought, too. The teaser image does not look like a field watch. We’ll see…

I just hope it's not too much of BB36 clone, and it would also be nice if it had smth other than a SW200 with 38hrs of power reserve, which to me is starting to sound like NH35s on micro brands.
If it’s sold as a field watch then it will be compared with the rather lovely Hamilton. I think that has a seventy hour power reserve, albeit beating at a lower frequency? Sealander 36 with black dial is already close to the BB36?
