It takes 150 turns of the crown to reach the 8 day power reserve and worth every second to do so. Such amazing accuracy. A beautiful beast.

I wish more Spring Drive would have the power reserve on the back. [nt]

What a stunning reference this is. Congratulations on adding it to your collection

You may have taken the plunge just in time - it looks like this has maybe been dropped from the range since it no longer appears on the Japanese website (still on the US one though).

Kind regards,


Nice one,Ed. How new is that model? (nt)

It’s really something. Big and bold yet still elegant. It’s heavy due to all the platinum. All highly polished.

The dial is sparkly a bit as it’s
what they call a “Diamond Dust” dial. So the watch looks quite elegant. The movement is finely finished but cannot see much due to the large main plate to ensure structural rigidity for the three barrels. I love watching the sweeping fluid second hand due to the Spring Drive. It’s a watch that you know you are wearing it when it’s on your wrist. Hope you are well!

I am well, but maybe..

Would be better with that watch?
