No logos, nothing superfluous.  Just hours and minutes, and the company name writ small at the bottom of the dial.

The lume used is provides the look of another age, and provides a nice touch.  But this is clearly a modern watch built for modern wrists - 40 mm of stainless steel, with a case that is made by the people that many other brands contract for their watch cases.

I love it!
