Huh, I don't know why but those PRX rub me the wrong way. It's the first time I'm having negative thoughts about a homage. I guess it's because the original one, specially in quartz (which in my opinion is the right one to get), is already affordable enough. Like, a homage of a model or reference that's not made anymore? Sure. Even a reference still being made but it's very expensive, I get it. But a Tissot? Uhm...

I wish SM did more their own designs. Look at Maen, they have a consistent design language. SM could be like that. Sure, "inspired by", but with their own twist. It's a shame that a brand that's supposed to have significantly better quality and QC than the others from that part of the world still makes mostly homages.
