That one looks nice, no butchering of that model at least.

Good looking piece. Something that looks more normal.

Yes, I like this change as well. Not bad at first glance.
Not sure about the "moulded" look rider tabs though, have to think about it.

Thumbs up (from an Aero wearer). They've dropped the grilled square in the middle - that's the big thing - but kept the all-numerals style which replaced the 1/2/4/5/7/8/10/11 batons of the older Aero; tweaked the hands, giving slightly sharper readibility to the minute hand; and added 'Swiss made', which I guess is cheering to read. I think those moulded [(c) Wessa] tabs look good. I don't really see the point of 15/30/45/60 on the dial as well as the bezel, and I prefer the mostly-batons of the older Aero to the all-numerals, but it's cumulatively a big improvement due to that much cleaner dial. Seems to me they've put the Aero on the right track and it's a really cheering, well, 'Evo'.

Waiting for my AD to get back to me on the specs, maybe Justin or Fear can get us some details; this may be my first Aerospace, I really like the clean dial on this model.

Based on the UK price and allowing for the fact that it includes VAT it should come out around $4,000 - $4,200 on bracelet - not bad.

Ah, interesting. The early ones were 40mm and it went 42mm in 2005.
