I logged in really early, then forgot that I had done that..was wondering...What is that damn clicking? Is my hard drive failing? ...OHHHhh..the chat :) So did they give any explanation as to why the website was so messed up? That might be off-topic but...

There was a problem with their ecommerce code. No one owned up to the bad copy.

The power reserve model is dead set gorgeous and the movement is drool worthy...but why oh why dlc...yea I guess he made his point...sells more...but for $1500 I don't want something wearing off in the future... stainless ages much better

So all in all, were y'all satisfied with their responses? Was it pretty straightforward or more jargon talk?

Not too much jargon...more trying to use "visual aids" to help others see potential of new logo...or for the cynical (I may or may not be one) trying to sidestep issue by distracting us with pretty watch pictures and logos in positions that still appear to be divisive lol...

long and short the rebranding is here to stay however, and I hope this was the take home msg, Chris did end of by emphatically stating that there has been no change in Target demographic.

In the words of Nile Rodgers, 'yowsa, yowsa, yowsa'!

Those are insanely gorgeous.

Ah, right. I was stuck on 'dual-level carriageway' and couldn't think of another option. (That, or a rapper.)

Hmm, the logo looks ok at 12.

Looking forward to the transcript.

Any pictures of new watches in stainless or all black?

The second C8 (hometime/GMT) is available in both SS and DLC. both are pictures. Unfortunately the the power reserve model isn't.

Very limited photo of moon phase with the dial centred and NOT left justified. Many thought it was the best iteration of the logo.

I like the power reserve but why do they see the need to write 'seconds' on the sub dial? It's the same on the new typhoon thingy, the sub dials do not need explaining imo
