Its an odd one that Guy, I'm drawn to the Hesketh branding but there's something about it that says fashion end of Rotary and a bit OTT with all the elements thrown in. Its a bit of fun though. An automatic more subtly executed would probably be a yes from me, this one I'm unsure.
I'm a bit of a geek re the historic racing stuff but not an avid collector, I have an original Hesketh Racing Bear club application signed by James Hunt, also an original painting of Hesketh F1 car signed by the driver, both acquired from the now owner of Hesketh engineering.

I think they should have made the crown a bit thicker.

Someone selling a C5A again? :D
:lol: Nice one, Avo.

Good point, though - I would like a black one to go with my cream one...

I really fancy a central chrono (though would prob go on strap not bracelet). I like the hint of green version too. The only problem is I'd have to fund it with two Halios and a guitar!

Ooh, Jon. With that Lemania-style chrono, I'd have one in a heartbeat. Damasko's best.
Too much watch for my wrist.....sigh.
One more watch (sort of) or one less guitar....life can be cruel.

Despite this being a wonderful watch in so many respects. I don't think I have ever seen a date window look so out of kilter with the rest of a watch. Pity it's there really.

^^^ Agreed. It would certainly be far better without the date. Or alternatively a simpler date window at 4:30 like most modern FF models.

This is available from a US retailer on Chrono24. It'd be waaaaaaay more than I have ever spent on a watch, but I want it sooooooo badly (right now at least, who knows how I'll feel tomorrow or next week).

Or if I don't want that one, there's always the black and rose gold version!

There's also that one. But probably the JLC Geographic more.

A lovely example (for me anyway) of pareidolia (seeing faces in everyday objects)!
watching you fail in your quest for a “one watch” has been great entertainment
