The font used for the word "diver" looks silly. In fact, that word doesn't look like "diver" at all. More like "dwel" or "dwet." As if a cat walked on the keyboard.

Interesting. I LOVE the typeface to the extent that it would possibly sway me to buy this watch if I was in the market for such a thing. Just too cool IMO.

Yeah, exactly. I saw that and said "what?"

They could have adjusted the kerning (spacing between letters) and fixed that right up. I blame the intern.

Indeed.

Dot all the i's... as they did in Antarctic. Sloppy — somebody needed to proofread the dial backwards, right to left, that is.
