Transgression of style norms doesn't have to have evoking outrage as a goal — sometimes it actually lets you see norms with fresh eyes and fresh appreciation.
The whole thing should have been a train wreck, and it was the exact antithesis, more or less, of what you'd expect from suiting at Brooks Brothers but somehow, it worked.
Whether you have a boyfriend, are a boyfriend, or are interested in boyfriend-adjacent matters in general, is perhaps less to the point than the fact that it's a good-looking watch with an interesting movement that has the kind of overt elegance that traditional Swiss luxury brands sometimes struggle to achieve.
Limited edition, 100 pieces world-wide.
I still don't think it's anything close to an everyday watch but if you're looking for a scene-stealing showstopper, day or night, this might be for you.
The use of sapphire for the case gives the watch an overt gem-like quality absent in the original Caliber 3, and the material doesn't just reveal more of the movement — like the facets of a diamond, it captures, refracts, and reflects light, amplifying the visual impact of the movement as if you were looking at it in a hall of mirrors.
