    “DateBust” or “SeaSweller” or “Consternation” was the highlight of that for me

    Ha! That's pretty funny :D

    Not a fan of that one myself but I always remember this watch on SC which I thought was quite the looker. I couldn't bring myself to buy it due to the name on the dial though...

    Maybe this could be a Gussot?

    Knock off design with a crown that only someone with childlike fingers could use. And do adults really have favourite numbers?
    Maybe I’m on my own with this but I’m really not a fan of “proprietary movements.” Not sure why I’m against them, I have in-house and I have Eta and I’m not against spending thousands on watches using Eta movements if I can see value being created elsewhere in a watch, like my 18k Franck Muller which has case and dial work that would be difficult to match by any maker using in-house movements at that, reduced, price point. I see proprietary movements as an attempt to pull the wool over peoples eyes, the brand hasn’t designed them and doesn’t even employ the watchmakers that make them. The movements may as well be Eta.

    Why even bother, I’m sure they make plenty of cash from handbags and questionable trainers etc.

    A few years ago I had a Gucci 5500 triple date. It was a quality watch.

    Without a second's hand... I don't know. A bit pricey for what they are and the position of the brand in the market. There are better fashion brands with better watches at the price points.

    I think they will be successful. Gucci have always been good at judging the market. I can see women wanting them.

    To be fair, there may be some genuine merit to the watchmaking here but….

    1. It looks awful (IMO)
    2. It has the most ridiculous model name on the dial
    3. €10k

    All it needs is, a couple of dial production issues, some supply strangulation, and a touch of grey hoovering and they’re on to a winner.

    I had the same thought - it's as if it was created by artificial intelligence.

    There's a Piaget Polo S in there too and perhaps even a bit of Bulgari Octo.

    Dial is much more similar to the original Piaget Polo watches than the "Integrated bracelet, no honest we are not just jumping on the AP/PP bandwaggon" Newer version they have out.

    Timex bracelet is very appropriate though. So a Piaget on a Timex bracelet.

    Do you think it will be a hair-puller like the Timex?

    It should not be too long before this is available in TK Max.

    Which doesn’t seem to stop some other watches with all 3 attributes being successful! :-D

    Great minds, must be a South Yorkshire thing. The irritating thing about it is that they'll probably sell a fair few.
