What Ernst Benz does best is big watches. This monster is 47mm in width and has a black and white, surprisingly readable face. The watch is almost too big for my wrist, but if you’re looking for something to signal spotter planes with, you could do worse than this shining monster.
The company has fitted all of the complications – the features – in with the face style quite nicely. The big, gothic hands are quite readable and the lume is excellent and usable at night. The sub-register hands – the 24-hour dial, etc – are unlumed, which makes the watch fairly useless as a date calculator in the pitch dark, but that can me forgiven given the complexity of the dial.
Don't forget that Hublot designed this new Big Bang case to have an easy-to-swap strap using the triangular pusher on the lugs. I still love that system, and so does Mr. Biver who is eager to show it off and play with it. According to him, and we agree, these are the finest Big Bang watches that the brand has made, and there is good reason. First of all, the Ferrari watches have a totally unique case which is an evolved Big Bang case with new styling that is 45.5mm wide. That is between the older 44mm wide Big Bang case and the much larger King Power case. The cases have unique and angular chronograph pushers (with the Ferrari logo), as well as a crown that twists in and locks as opposed to merely screwing down.
Parnis GMT - Since I got rid of my Invicta Russian Diver GMT, this is now the biggest watch in my collection, coming in at just under 50mm :D Automatic watch with 24 hr GMT hand as well.
