It was sunny ☀️ when I went for a stroll this morning to watch the local Red Kites, Buzzards and Kestrel enjoying themselves.

Cute dogs!

This is cut from another forum where I answered the same question:

I was impressed. Firstly, I couldn’t get over how light it was, even with the bracelet I would guess that it possibly weighs about 50% of the Tudor North Flag I was wearing.

The build quality was excellent. Really nicely finished case and bracelet. I’ve no experience of titanium but it was finished in my opinion like high quality brushed stainless steel.

The mechanism is wonderful to look at. Fascinating to see the mainspring winding as you rotate the crown. The see through caseback appears to be smoked? It’s easier to see the movement from the front than the back.

The bracelet is lovely, I really like the tapered down side links and the seatbelt clasp works really well. Possibly my only criticism is how it width tapers back out at the clasp.

For it’s size it wears really well, feels slim and wraps nicely around my 7.25 inch wrist. All told it’s a spectacular achievement.

However, I’m rather obsessed about legibility and consequently have never previously given much thought to skeleton watches. Does this change my views? I’m not entirely sure, it’s clearly good, they have made a real effort on contrast between hands and (lack off) dial but personally I’m not 100% convinced about legibility, plus it’s pretty expensive...
