I love this style so much, always have, not sure why. It's pretty much the perfect dive watch look IMO.
Agree. Makes me want an original 900 or Blancpain. I'll pass on the SayKo powered one though.

US$950 is ridiculous for a NE15-powered bead blasted dive watch on a nylon strap, I don't care how nice the crystal is.

Just so you know, only five of them are known to exist. But if you have the scratch, one can be had. ($65,000)

The newer Blancpain 50 Fathoms are considerably cheaper, at only $16,500 for this titanium version:

I prefer the look of the new T-R to both of those. The old one looks like shit. The Blancpain, while beautiful it its own right, is too fancy for a dive watch and doesn't have the T-R style and functional aesthetic.
