Of course, this is a subtly skeletonized dial, which I appreciate. It gives you a glimpse of what’s ticking away in the in-house movement, and doesn’t appear to detract from readability. I also like how the date display is done – it’s unobtrusive, but easy to tell what the value is.
It does, however, make the sub-seconds jump out all the more. Perhaps if they had skeletonized that a bit, or muted the indicators, it would blend in a bit better. This “issue” is not truly an issue, however, as I’m not about to be dropping $12,500 (at today’s exchange rates) on a watch. If you’ve just won the lottery, though, this just might be a great limited edition for you to pick up.
