Yes -- That Would Have Been More Interesting

We saw Hodinkee take the 39 millimeter "glassbox" Carrera, and make it hugely successful, with the name Skipper on the dial.

It would have been interesting to have seen the same exercise with this Autavia . . . also with the name "Skipper" on the dial, of course.

As created, we see people playing with the colors, but not reflecting any real engagement with the history of the brand.

Oh well . . . let them sell a few watches and then move on to the next one.

I'll stick with the "yawn" theme.



: If only they took it a bit further down the Skipper route....
