Some more photos on watch insider. The bezel no longer attaches to the ears. Can we still call it a nautilus? I actually like how they've done the left buttons, I just wish they'd got a better arrangement for the sub dials.

I agree if they had a windowed date below and the PP name up top this would be very nice. I guess technically it might not have been possible.

Home and Local are too large, too inelegant. And I dislike dials which have the brand logo at the bottom of the dial.

Oh dear!

The 5990 looks like it was designed by someone with serious OCD. You can imagine them obsessively trying to cram more details onto the dial and then spending every waking minute rearranging them so it might look neat and tidy.

I'm sticking with a simpler approach and keeping my Chrono and GMT functions separate in different watches.

Go for the 5164. On the 5990 the event would be over before you'd figured out which thing to press to make it happen. It's a Walter Mitty watch.

I love it!! Remember that the GMT had disappears behind the hour hand if you aren't using it. I wish they had this when i bought my 5164
