Sometimes I fiddle with this when bored

It looks and functions like those fidget spinners. 

I like the reassurance of the lug design, because it has to be screwed in, instead of the ubiquitous springbar. Wish they made more watches with screwed in bars - the FF from Blancpain comes to mind.

Wish Peter Speake were still in his namesake company. The new collab with Frederique Constant is nice.

Maybe one day, I’d seek out another piece from PSM.

Always good to see Peter Speake love here. And the "topping tool" logo.

Image my surprise when I bought my Resilience used, and found it was the one used in their advertising. And the "Topping Tool" on the Spirit model turns like a second hand. ...

And the beautiful seconds wheel! Wow!! The foundation hands look fantastic when lumed. I much prefer that.

We bought this piece pre-owned, only to discover it was the one used by Hodinkee for their “3 on 3” article comparing 3 Indies (Sarpaneva and Habring² being the others) for under $15k ...

It goes to show there are not many around or maybe sheer coincidence. Ah I think I see yours has the 120h power reserve. That is a calibre to go gaga for. This rotor has one of the most beautiful spinning actions out there.=D have a good weekend Brandon a...

Man, this is the British Stealth Bomber

Ooooooooooooooo If I had that piece, maybe I’d wear it for 15 days a month, and even forget to take it off when sleeping. Was this a difficult piece to get back then?

I was perusing the Naked Watchmaker today and noticed that Peter has left that venture as of July1st.

One can only hope he will start up another watchmaking company in the near future.
