The Hodinkee criticism,💯. But saying the Longines is a rip-off of the BB Pro. BB Pro is an homage to its "big brother's" Explorer II. The Longines is a steel bezel diver with a gmt function that look more like a Seiko Prospex SPB185 than a BB Pro or Explorer II. But gotta fanboy the "Crown". He did the same thing to Zenith, accusing them of copying the Daytona when all they did was apply a tach bezel to the Chronomaster
I remember when Adrian, Time Teller and other were bashing Zenith Chronomaster as a Daytona knock-off. It was IDGuy who actually did a in depth and comprehensive look at the design and showed that the Zenith truly was it's own watch. Mad respect.
