I agree

Response to Well guys (and gals)...

Hi Alberto, and thank you so much for all these wonderful pictures of the new models!

I agree that the DR designs are morphing into GG territory, what with the flashy colors and punchy graphic treatments on the dials. I don't think it's a good fit for this case shape, which has so much traditional Daniel Roth DNA left in it (for better or worse, depending on your point of view).

The case shape reminds the long time aficionados of the relatively conservative designs of DR's past, but the new bold designs of the dials are not compatible with that memory. This is of course not an issue for new DR customers, who perhaps have never seen an old DR wristwatch.

Still, perhaps a clean break, with an entirely new case shape is in order? Something that is not DR pill-shaped, but also not GG round, or GG octagonal. A shape that matches the new direction of the brand.

Best regards,
