For the pleasure of the eyes. 

Here, I would go for the Red Arrow. Give me any other white metal  Rattrapante version and I would choose the Rattrapante. 




Both spectacular Nicolas

The more I see these the more I crave seeing the unveiled secret in the flesh hopefully very very soon!

Hopefully, mon ami.

they have to be sold (either to ADs or boutique customers) before end of March 2023 ;-)

You, you know the 2023 novelties.... :))))

 By: penfriend : November 7th, 2022-13:15

I thought so... :)

 By: amanico : November 7th, 2022-15:04

Should I wait for the 2023 novelties then? You see to be in the know :-)))

Pricing will go up for sure, even if they (and I don't know for sure) built another unveiled secret. Some year they will use the caliber again, probably in WG, but this is the first edition (and the cheapest I guess).

Makes perfect sense! Inn any case I am still anxious to see and possibly get it!

Here I am split.

 By: jlux : November 5th, 2022-13:00
Dial side it would be the Red Arrow but movement side the Rattrapante !

LOL, good one about your split feelings. ;)

 By: amanico : November 5th, 2022-16:57

Very close call. With very small margin I would go for the Red Arrow.

 By: lm6 : November 5th, 2022-13:13

1 for the Red Arrow.
