Hamilton Ventura Dune - Ridiculously Priced?

Never been a massive Ventura fan, but I actually really like the digital iteration here, but then there is the price...! Ventura XXL Bright Dune (analogue) EUR 1,845 Ventura Edge Dune EUR 2,592

I like the original don鈥檛 care for this. Don鈥檛 even care how much it costs.

Is this what they're revealing on the Friday meetup at Timeworks Seattle?

Yikes, it looks like a cheap toy. Especially compared to the movie prop, it鈥檚 like a poor reproduction.

Love Dune, and I鈥檓 a fan of Hamilton but this is a big fail 馃憥

I like the colours and the way the digi is split and you press again for the seconds. But think the ana looks cheap. I think 5 or 600 would be still expensive but fair with the movie connection. Completely understand why a lot of people don鈥檛 like them馃檹馃徎

I like the Ventura but not the Dune.

I like them a lot, specially the digital one. Really cool but really expensive as well.

100% agree!

These watches are designed for the type of person that has a room at home filled with Dune memorabilia that loves Dune, not for people who like watches and like Dune.

As watch people, we are not the target audience.

Also Dune fan here (the original Herbert novel) ... I like the original Hammy Ventura for its Retro-Future (1950's) styling, but those movie-themed Venturas look like cheap props ... just go look at some of the original Star Trek "gadget" props on display at the S.T. museum in Vulcan, Alberta (Canada) and you'll see just how cheap and crappy movie props actually appear in real life ...

Pretty expensive but I think they're pretty cool! If I were to find $2.2k that digital would be mine.
