There's more 'real estate' to display everything in a more balanced way in my opinion....

Indeed, that's the way to go!

..... the vintage valuation of these pieces and their historic relevance. I "have them all" (3 Heuer Bund versions, Leonidas. Breitling 817.) and I cherish them. Cheers, HSTE

I love them both ...
