OK, yes I admit it - I'm a weirdo!

After I was instantly and universally repulsed by Tudor's Baselworld 2019 offerings, I must confess (and completely and utterly despite myself) I'm coming round to the PO1! :oops:

I think I've always had a bit of a thing for watches that are "so ugly they're cool", and the PO1 fits that description rather nicely IMO. As far as I'm concerned the Omega Ploprof is the undisputed king of "beautifully-ugly" and I also think it's one of the greatest watches ever made...... but the PO1, while being nowhere near the Ploprof's league, it's definitely from the same school.

Yes I'm clearly in the minority on this one, but the great news is there won't be a waiting list! :lol:

I am with you on this one Driver. Loved the P01 the moment I first saw it, this is a definite pick up for me.

I never liked the Tudor hands, but now that the whole thing looks freakish they finally fit!

You guys can have it, I'm not putting my name on a list for that.

I generally like odd/weird watches but I'm really not feeling that one at all.
