Functionally, the Ulysse Nardin Macho Palladium 950 contains the Ulysse Nardin UN27 automatic mechanical movement that has been COSC certified to be a Chronometer. The movement's functions include a small seconds display, date, and power reserve. Important information that is well laid out on the dial. I especially like the minimally sized power reserve indicator that is still highly functional. The hands are broad and effective. And the texture layering on the dial is effective in making the watch a noticeable and respective luxury wrist companion. One thing I really like is the polished metal ring in the date window. As the date dial is inset a bit, the inner part of the date window from the dial to the disc is highly polished and adds an interesting effect.
This watch is not to be confused with the other Seiko Prospex Marinemaster watches that I have been talking about. Those don't have automatic movements, but rather Kinetic Direct Drive or Spring Drive movements. For example, I spoke of the similarly named Seiko SBDD001, which has a similar name, but different look and movement. The Seiko SBDX001 is an amazing offering by Seiko for a number of reasons.
No watch is a clear winner as they are each good at different things, even though they have a lot in common. I'd suggest that the Temption is a better value even though it costs more given its construction quality and details. The Square is going to be a lot easier to find given the higher volume output of Fortis watches and is about ,20o given the street price, while the Temption hovers nearer to 00). Further, while I am a fan of both designs, I am partial to the Temption for being outstandingly unique, and attractive, while serving admirably in ease of use. Neither of these watches is a bad choice though.
