You can say that - it's a gorgeous and stunning piece!

I like the black dial version, too... and if they had a manual winding movement, they would be even better!

It is a very attractive watch

The question is would you choose it instead of a similar and comparable priced Patek with a shorter waiting time.

I am actually considering this watch

the main drawback for me is that the movement (despite being a Vaucher movement) is not visible. Yes I understand that this watch is reminiscent of the Patek Ref 96 but with Kikuchi Nakagawa's obsession for black polishing, it would have been great if the... 

I liked the first iteration but I love this one.

I’m not sure what holds me back however, I’m not willing right now to go beyond merely stating I love it.

Love their philosophy

The amount of hand work on this watch probably exceeds any other watch in the same price range - a fully black polished case just boggles the mind. Difficult to imagine what it'll look like in real life.

The same one with...

- applied numerals would have my preference - mandatory manual winding movement for such a design - a probably lower price positioning given the present specifications but definitely a very very beautiful design. My 2 cents,

I have the same sentiments as the majority here

The watch looks really nice, however I would have thought that two independent watch makers would have created their own movement and not sourced one from another company. And then there's the asking price. Again many great options to choose from at this ... 

My point is thus:

With so many watches being produced, it is (sadly) overwhelmingly shockingly difficult to find an elegant proportioned sized steel gentleman's watch with a timeless simple gorgeous dial, handset and striking indices (here Breguet arabics that have been bu... 

It is lovely

and I have seriously considered it. I can only imagine the quality of polishing and craftsmanship. For me, the drawbacks are the printed numerals and the size. I wish it were 39 mm! With my somewhat large arms, 37 mm is just too small, or, so much smaller... 

A beautiful timepiece....

I love the look of this one - a beautiful case and dial. But, my understanding is that the watchmakers outsource the dial, case, movement, etc. Polishing is quite nice, but hard to get to the price they are asking. Too many other independents creating mor... 

They make watches the old-school Swiss way

I have followed him on IG for quite some time and I am personally blown away by the quality of the components he produces.

Stunning

Applied arabic numerals would be very nice
