A quartz Titan Edge. The whole watch is 42mm, titanium and 3.9mm 'thick'. The movement is just a little more than 1mm. Quite affordable at around $200-300.

Also, the lightest watch in the world at 36 grams.

The sheer complexity of the movement within this makes this appealing.

I have a tiny rectangular mans Timex "Privilege" on an elastic band circa 1970 that is about that thickness. And a titanium Skagen circa 1990 that's not much thicker, and light as a feather. I shall have to weigh it. Privilege is 38g, and Skagen is 48, both with OEM metal straps.

Without the crest on the second hand it would be perfect.

I just can't imagine wanting to wear a fictional character's family crest on my wrist...

Love the yellow and even though the textured dial is just the crest I think it is more subtle and I would be content with just that.

Unfortunately not. :( As appealing as it is, (and it is hugely appealing) unless I win the lottery, it is unlikely to grace my watch box.

That Pelagos just looks fantastic imo, heavily competing with the blue Omega Planet Ocean in titanium for the ultimate blue diver

Yes, it does look amazing and I've no doubt it will sell well, but the blue is quite bright/loud like the C60 blue.
