One of these watches which made me dream and which still makes me dream. When discuss Rattrapantes, we most often forget it. Strangely, because it was a very good one. Here is the platinum, limited to 100 pieces Credit: Govberg. Movement side, taken by Cr...

I owned this one, but....

...sold it because of the poor legability. There was no contrast between hands and dial and this drove me crazy. Well I guess a small improvement would change the situation. The hands should be curved (it works well on IWC Portugeese with gray dial). Mayb...
