Nice honest watch. The style is timeless (no pun intended), and it definitely looks great today, since it was released 10 years ago.

The only thing that Longines did wrong here, was discontinuing the no-date version, which without the date window had that really great symmetry to it. Nevertheless, the date window here is not particularly bad, it kind of blends into the design.

Saying that it "wears on the larger side" is a bit of an euphemism, though- the lug to lug on these is above 50mm, which is already more than the Tudor Black Bay, and the BB already tends to scare off many people with smaller or medium wrists.
