Hi Nicolas,
As I said it looks really nice but a bit hard to see what are most probably the beautiful details of the dial any chance we can get some close up shots of the dial? Pretty please?
Marc

Here you are...

Comparing this to UN's current collection, I feel that 80 years of evolution has destroyed some of their DNA.

JLC has done a better job in this regard, I think, while still experimenting.

For the good or for the bad? I feel some of their mad creations from the late 90's to the late 00's were pretty remarkable ( Freak, Sonata, Cal 160, Genghis Khan, Royal Blue Tourbillon, Astronomical Watches, Perp Calendar )... )

And we could add many more...
The Lucas, Humair, Oeschin and Schnyder's years were really something.
In that sense, I don't think it is for the Bad...

For me, the remarkable elements of recent UN are more technical than aesthetic, and I wish they would incorporate more of the stylistic DNA of the past.

JLC retains more of their stylistic heritage even when pushing the technical aspects, in my view.

From an aesthetic point of view, yes, I agree.

Have I asked how old that chrono is? (nt)

 
 By: Ronald Held : February 3rd, 2021-12:19
NT.  

From 1942 so, almost 80 years old.
