That's way cool. Except the date window. There's something very wrong there, but I can't tell you what it is.

I tend to agree with conj about the placement of the date window. I'm sure the quality is superb, but I agree with the chorus here. Full respect to your usual tastes; you know how to separate the wheat from the chaff.

It's not so much the placement, it's the execution. And the date wheel looks like they ripped it off from a Stauer.

To the OP original query.
No-not on crack.
To like that watch would require a Walter White special recipe.

I'm trying hard. I'm trying real hard. I thought that interpreting the dial in a Shinto / Buddhist light would help, sadly no. The quality is there but the signature style of the Credor clan is painfully missing. Several of the other models in the line miss the mark also. They are running stuff up the flag pole and seeing how many salute. Might not see many of this iteration?? Could be a driver for purchasing/keeping.

I like your analogy - there's Shinto and there's Buddhist but there ain't no Shinto Buddhist - much like that watch.

As an aside Buddhists and Hindus sometimes share shrines.
