It also wore top heavy and less comfortably than the Sub, but this was minor compared to the overall look. However, it was one of my most legible chronographs.
I kinda know what you mean. I think the vintage models have more wrist appeal because their dials are less flat, the acrylic crystal causes a lot of light dancing, and they have tritium as well. The modern moonwatch doesn't really do anything for me, though I do like some of the non-moonwatch models, like the co-axial models.

Sometimes even my transitional 3590.50 can look a bit 'flat' at times, but other times it just comes alive, especially under the sun, like here...
