Beautiful movement, I like it.

However, there is something about RG's dials that leave cold, I think is something about the hands, but I'm not sure, anyway, amazing watch.

I had never considered getting one until I saw it a a local dealer. All I can say is that it is exquisitely finished and enjoyable to wear. ...  

Beautiful!

I love the caseback crown, do you know if it's easy to wind?

Thanks!

Unlike nwk00, I actually find it harder to wind that a normal crown. For my large stubby fingers, I have to essentially use my nails in the detents on the crown. Not as easy but not bad enough to make it an impediment.

Can you try this?

Hold the watch steady so it doesn't move when you press and slide the crown. It should glide easily. And because the crown is huge, you have a lot of leverage and speed. www.flickr.com

Will certainly do so.

Thank you for this. I tend to hold it in a similar fashion but attack the edge of the crown, the serrations.

It did indeed!

Thanks very much!

Yeah I love this watch

It's always taken a back seat to its big brother the Logical One. Shame because the movement is quite pretty.

Ahhh

I love the Logical One! Perhaps, someday...

Thanks very much! [nt]

It really is well finished

I guess it shouldn't have come as a surprise but it did surprise me.

Perfectly understandable.

Now I have that urge to keep an eye for his other work.

Such a good looking RG .

A superb watch, looks like it wears very well on your wrist.

As others have said we all seem to be a little guilty of letting the Logical One and the Micro Rotor dominate the RG discussion. This is also a superb watch, more classic in design but with just enough personality to make it stand out from the crowd.

Thanks you

Yes, I, too, have been dazzled with the other models. It was only once I handled this that I realized that not only was it special, it was a great regular wear watch.

Beautiful movement, I like it.

I can't disagree

but I don't think it's the hands. In my case, I'm more drawn to dials with textures and levels; levels this has, textures not in the density that wow's one. That said, the small seconds hand tied to its exposed wheel is fascinating.
