Cool

I've never looked at the hour hand and thought that before. Personally like that they've gone back to the original design of the '69 snowflake than just being a sister company that uses mercedes logo on a stick. Gives the brand its own distinctive character.

Edit: Having said that I'm not much of a fan of the chronos tudor as the hour hand is too big for them and obscures too much of the watch at the 3 and 9 o'clock position rendering it pretty useless for its original purpose.

I just don’t find it aesthetically pleasing, it just seems too big at the end. When I had mine I would always find myself looking at it, like those special shoes for people with one leg shorter than the other.
Great watch otherwise though.

I get what you’re saying a. Only part of their design which is really jarring to me too

Picked up the BB and having a quick word with the guy in charge i said IM getting three more decent watches then I am done. Said a monaco, super ocean heritage and a yacht master.
Basically two relatively cheaper pieces and the rolex.
He was trying to say to buy the monanco and SOH from harrods so i could get a chance of getting the yacht master. I looked with a raised eye brow to kinda say 'realllllllly' and he got the point and said "well, you never know" Lol.
No chance of gettting anything from them when theres big spenders all over the gaff spending racks

Has that not always been the case? My AD wouldn’t even put me on a waiting list for a Daytona as I had only bought one Sub from them
