I looked very hard at this regulator or SeaGull before I bought an M17. I debated endlessly inside my head, but finally decided on another watch.

I wonder what other folks think of the aesthetics? I assume it's an excellent watch mechanically, the (older) reviews I found for a Perpetual watch using this movement raved.

I was very torn because I was worried that the very quirkiness that made the watch endearing might get old very fast. Do any of you wear a regulator for daily wear?

It also looked to me like the lume (I think it's lume) on the hour clashes with the very understated dial. I really liked the aesthetics of the Perpetual interpretation a lot more - under the picture, I added a link to the Perpetual version.

But every couple of day, I look at the SeaGull version and think that it's growing on me.

Lume is on the minute hand only and therefore is completely useless for helping to read the time in the dark unless you already know the hour. That would bother me.
