And between my brother and I, have have several variants of the 2598. Thickness is 13 mm. It’s stepped so, never felt it to be a thick watch either. The lugs taper to conform with the wrist. It’s quirky cool IMHO. I have yet to meet a person who didn’t li... 

Interesting about the central hands

Chrono. Thanks for sharing.

Has so little online about it. It was a special edition for the Asian market only.

Thanks Bill☀️

You must run the GP museum! Make cushions great again ...  

Would rather run a GP museum
