I posted a WTB on TZ-UK recently for an X-33 or a B-1, thinking that either would be perfect for a forthcoming trip to NY (and would in any event serve a purpose thereafter). I decided against the X-33 for various reasons, but before I could unearth a B-1 I was offered a nice minty Aerospace Evo and decided to take the plunge. I have to say that I’m glad I did.
The Evo is the largest Aerospace yet at 43mm, but it still retains both it’s legendary comfort and it’s lightness as a consequence of being titanium. Other changes are a slightly different handset (a half-lumed hour hand and a needle minute hand), re-styled rider tabs and a little more bling in the applied logo and numerals. On the wrist (and away from the bright glare of my lights), however, it seems almost understated and certainly doesn’t shout too loud. The size is fine on my 6.75″ wrist – bear in mind that the wrist shot is taken at close quarters with a wide-angle lens – but I certainly wouldn’t want to go any larger.
