Just one word: Gorgeous. 

And I am pretty sure some will ask a photo of the front side... wink

That's why I thought. ;)

Indeed an amazing movement

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : January 12th, 2024-21:56

More industrial.

Nice comparison

 By: TeutonicCarFan : January 13th, 2024-02:22
I've always felt this way, minerva finishing exceeds PP and VC here (not that finishing is the most important). Lange really seems to be the only mainstream in comparison besides the ultra niche (which mb minverva from villeret may be considered based on ... 

Agreed. Very useful comparative

Right ❤️

Is that rose gold in place of German silver?

Yes, from memory, yes.

The movement?

 By: amanico : January 13th, 2024-06:18

That was a nice watch!

 By: patrick_y : January 13th, 2024-05:31

Agreed. I'm not crazy about bronze.

 By: patrick_y : January 13th, 2024-08:40
Give me steel. Nothing wrong with steel! I don't need gold or platinum. They're nice. But you know me, I care about internal beauty more than external beauty!

In total agreement.

 By: amanico : January 13th, 2024-08:42

Stunning movement!

 By: smironov : January 13th, 2024-06:07
Btw, purely from the beauty point of view how do you rank this one vs. it's split-sec brother? Thanks. Semyon.

Module is the key word

 By: penfriend : January 13th, 2024-10:15
I still ask myself if this really works that accurate...

But yours is....??? :)

 By: amanico : January 13th, 2024-22:31

this one to be cited

 By: penfriend : January 13th, 2024-22:22

Aouch... Hmmmmmmmmm!

 By: amanico : January 13th, 2024-22:31

In my experience it works flawlessly.

 By: als1678 : January 13th, 2024-15:46
My impression is that every rattrapante is "a module", including the high end ones from Lange, Patek or Journe. There are various tricks to make the movement slimmer but they can compromise performance.

I thought the same, too.

 By: amanico : January 13th, 2024-16:00

You have any issues with yours?

 By: TeutonicCarFan : January 13th, 2024-18:14

not at all

 By: penfriend : January 13th, 2024-21:21
but it integrated

Best thing they did was to release this green dial in a steel case a year later

 By: penfriend : January 13th, 2024-10:13
only caliber 13.21 but at 40mm a perfect watch imho ...  

True, true!

 By: amanico : January 13th, 2024-11:01

Love, love this one!

 By: TeutonicCarFan : January 13th, 2024-14:33
I actually like the white one they just released, with the minerva arrow on the dial. My only hang up is the collective horology branding. Not sure my thoughts here

You mean this one?

 By: amanico : January 13th, 2024-15:25

Yes the blue arrow

 By: TeutonicCarFan : January 13th, 2024-16:38

Is there any branding on that watch?

 By: Jaseewasee : January 13th, 2024-16:26
I will say, I recently met one of the founders of Collective Horology, and after taking with him I came away very impressed by what they’re doing and their business philosophy. Truly a great guy. I’ve got an appointment to look at some of the watches they... 

Very minimal p.05 on back

 By: TeutonicCarFan : January 13th, 2024-16:40
I believe their 5th collaboration piece? Not sure I don't follow much. I'd buy a WPS edition because this is a community I'm a part of. CH I don't know. NYC boutique had one available, they tried to tempt me🤣 I just don't want all the same calibers in my ... 

I can totally understand that!

 By: Jaseewasee : January 13th, 2024-18:09

Thank you!
