I've never been interested in the "Sport" versions before, however this does make sense for the Marine range because you could actually take it out onto the water.
Even though Nautical themed watches with WR of 50m (e.g. the Stowa Marine range to date) and 60m (such as my own IWC Portugieser) should be absolutely fine, I would feel much more comfortable with the 200m WR of this new Marine Sport. This would be even better with the Unitas movement of the MO range.
Love the size, can't quite get my head around everything that's going on with it though. Looks like a dress watch face and crown ran smack into a sport watch case. I agree with whoever said the arabic will be the one to wait for.
Wonder if they got tired of waiting for people to order a marine chrono in 43mm and decided to use them somewhere else...
Well, in my humble opinion this model looks kind of „unbalanced“, flavorless. The sporty case and the rather elegant dial with its Roman numerals do not harmonize very well. It doesn't look very thoughtful to me. It might be visually more appealing with Arabic numerals, don‘t know. Anyway, I would have applauded to a somehow more „fresh“ looking dial design utilizing the 43mm Sport/TO2 Case. A white dial with black „3,6,9, 12“ numerals, or maybe a black dial with orange numerals. An enlarged Antea b2b blue dial might have done the trick as well. The Marine dial as it is in the 43mm case looks somehow dull to me. My two centavos, of course.
