In the end I decided not to go for the Lorier Neptune v2. To be very honest, I think whatever the brand did to that rehaut, ugly as it was on its own, destroyed the entire look of the watch.

I don't know what look the watch is trying to go for now. Seems confused now, like a modern design with vintage inspired markers and a big crown and acrylic crystal.

This picture from them, which they so proudly took, says it all. Hoping the v1 will pop up soon for a reasonable price somewhere.

Maybe they will copy Rolex and put Lorier around the rehaut? to be honest a single line red text on the V2 dial will make it sell better.

Spoiler!

The V1 looks so much better indeed. I was on the verge of getting it back then, but I'm just not a fan of broad arrow style hands.

I'll be at the event next week too. Can't wait!

I really like the case size and look, but the last few times it was released I had just bought other pieces so put on hold.. Who knew that they would take a step back in design!

See ya there bro. Can't wait too! Nop told me to prep my wallet.. Doesn't sound good, but maybe he's selling the new Elementals on the spot for $50, one can dream..

Dunno, probably not re Rolex la, that's downright tacky! I think the dial is alright. These are basically mashups of a few iconic watches from the past haha.

I have both, albeit the Omega Seamaster being the previous version (ceramic bezel with date window at 3 o'clock). Look and feel different from Speedmaster (mine is the "Original Moonwatch", on bracelet).

Have to try on your wrist to feel the diff.

If you ask me, I prefer the Speedmaster slightly.
