Unveiled Secret: more impressive in the flesh then in pictures but ...

I had the chance to see this beauty in the flesh today.  I remember that many purist seemed to have reserved on this latest iteration when it came out.  While the darker look is really cool in the flesh as it helps legibility and there is truly a three dimensional effect to the dial/movement, I also find we see less of the movement details compared to the steel 2022 version.  Don't get me wrong you do see the movement but as many components have been darkened I find it harder to see all the nuances.

For now it did not come home with me but it still represent a very impressive piece of horology on the wrist!

I think I still prefer the steel version from last year ... What do you think?

this dial works better here than with the blue steel edition. My impression was when I handled the blue and the green (lime gold) that the shiny dial went much better with the lime gold case. So my preference is the darkened dial in this aged case to the ...

after they had failed three times in delivering it at the announced dates I got aware that my piece had not even been built. being treated this way I declined. Last week I attended an event and was shown some new Villeret watches. I enquired about this ne...

I like the dial treatment, but don't like the case faux distress.
