Simple, elegant and to my eyes beautiful. My only criticism no chatons! Can anybody explain this for me.?

Probably due to the chatons needing extra thickness (taken up by rotor here). And to offset the cost of the Pt peripheral weight. Regards, skyeriding [nt]

Thanks for mentioning it. Looks gorgeous though

The rotor is also gold plated

and not solid gold, due to the rotor design to allow a better view of the movement.

From what I read the rotor is gold plated to enhance the Mechanics and cut down on the sheer force Causing undue stretching of the rotor [nt]

As far as I know, it is all about thickness

As I spoke with Tony De Haas today on a similar subject today, I'd assume it is not has to do anything with costs etc..
Chatons add extra thickness, thus they wanted to avoid that.
Rotor is not solid gold due to thin structure of its main part. If it would be, it would bend easily and damage the movement. Instead they use different material and plated in gold.
Very beautiful piece!

Thank you for the update [nt]

It is a very nice combination of big date, moon phase, dial colour and material
