Not digging the curves... (yet probably)

    I've got a 42mm S3 SS and will be skipping the S4 as it's everything I need for now but just like the S0 I had before the S3 the time will come for an upgrade and it will probably be the S5.

    What I have noticed though is that the proportions of the watch, to me, just don't seem as pleasing on the 40/44 vs the 38/42 and I'm wondering if part of this was down to a compromise to make the curves meet the original band sizes.

    To give some context this is what I'm talking about..


    I just love the shape of the original and am not too struck by the new rounder shape which seems to be just giving way to a round face.. which might be interesting (if Jony could get over the idea).. no I think at the moment this is too halfway and it would have looked better if they kept the proportions of the curves and came out with a different band sizing - You do need to separate the thoughts about your current investments in bands here as I have, I have quite a few and would be annoyed that they didn't fit but I'm more annoyed if it just doesn't look correct in proportions.

    To each their own, I find the curves more appealing than the squared ones.

    I don't think it's a massive difference. I think the slightly more rounded corners make more sense with the increased dimensions.

    I didn’t at first, but one week in I’m already liking them better than the design of my old S3.

    I agree. I prefer the look of the original. Especially with certain bands like the woven nylon. But it’s a personal thing.

    Loving the new curves!!! The screen and the smaller bezel is sexy!
