interesting. what drew you to this one in particular? what would you call this design style? kind of looks like a half bauhaus/half japanese retro look to me.
The dial style? It's called a sector dial.
I liked the clean execution of the markers and somewhat practical no nonsense look. Pricepoint did not hurt either.

Have previously looked at the Longines heritage classic and the Omega ck 859 re-edition. Found both a bit too fussy (and I'm not a diplomat).

I like that Omega. Could be a little less 'fussy" but it's a nice looking watch.

Indeed it is. As I understand it, it ran as a special issue for like 3-4 months. Great succes. Would not be unreasonable, to think/hope they would do a regular sector dial (again) in the next few years. I certainly like them.

I like their whole catalogue, to varying degrees, tbh. That green diver grabbed my eye as well as the panda above. It says price includes VAT - I wonder if that comes off when you order from the US?

Also looks like they have some US retailers - including one really close to me.

RL is one of the very few brands which I would buy clothes from RTW, but these fashion brands have to stop stepping into horology. Doing a bit of everything will unfailingly make you terrible at some things. Stick to what you are good at...
At the price their watches retail, I would buy JLC straight away. At 17k, you could find a MUT in rose gold...

They have outsourced watches to a co venture with Richemont. I think we safely say Richemont understand luxury watches.

I will probably never be in the market for a Royal Oak or Nautilus. However, these are affordable...
