My main issue with this one is the...

My main issue with this one is the 5,000euro SRP for this watch... At current exchange rates that's a skosch over $6,000. That's a lot of money for a mainly quartz watch. I like the innovation, I like that they are (apparently) making the movement, I just wish they were working more seriously to wean themselves off of ETA/Swatch controlled movements. Especially for the Classic's line.
