May 25, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

By now, you are no doubt aware that we here at WWR dig into the design details of the watches we learn about and review. One of the many areas of focus is often the dial. With this, we often wax semi-poetically about the various levels and changes of texture on a dial – or,…
