Dufour's SimplicitySeptember 14 2005 at 12:52 AM

I am curious and would appreciate some comments on this watch. Why has the Simplicity generated so much attention and interest amongst the many aficionados out there?
I hope I do not offend anyone, but put simply, it is a watch with three hands indicating the most basic function of a watch: time-keeping. There are just as many other brands out there offering the same, but none seems to command the same attention as the Simplicity. Why is this the case?
Does the Simplicity symbolise something? Is it because of the limited pieces that will be made? What am I missing? Someone please enlighten me.
