The movement is spectacular.

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. ...
I love the caseback crown, do you know if it's easy to wind?
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.
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.
I love the Logical One! Perhaps, someday...
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.
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.
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. Vte
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.
His work really is very refined. And fine gentleman.
Romain and his watches are amazing
I encourage you to check out Romain's watches in person at a show, owners, or dealer (Like Passion Fine Jewelers in CA). Here's an article I posted a few months ago. Since then I've been fortunate enough to add the Logical to the collection. www.watch...
watch. I'm quite familiar with Romain's work and with the man himself. A real gentleman and his work is stupendous. I certainly wasn't very familiar with it until a few months ago when I was fortunate enough to get the HMS. The Logical 1 is on my shortlis...
