It is also a very Swiss intepretation of watchmaking, not Germanic.
I personally like it very much.
If you have already missed or don't like the alternatives, this watch looks to be a good choice.
The engineering approach is less extreme than Volker. Here, Romain has taken a more restrained approach, and focused much on tradtional finish, and the addition of several unsual presentations of function.
I won't spoil Ian's fun...wait for his article. It will be good...he has spent more time with the watch.
