These things are so accurate, you barely even need a crown. :D

I think the hands and the crown are too short, the sunken crown detail is cheap looking and the dial looks cluttered, even though is is only a GMT. Oh and the GMT hand isn't in symphony with the other hands and the rehaut looks vast. Other than that I like what they have done with the piece. :twisted:

I agree about the hands being too short but I'm also worried about how the GMT track goes 11 - 8 - 13!

Yeah it has it's flaws, but doesn't it hide them well with the overall design.

Looks like a C9 or Speedbird 3 rip-off. No thanks, much prefer the "normal" versions.

Those hands are positively stunted.

Looks good, but the hour hand looks very odd to me.
