Lots of tough competition including several independents like The debethune and your NHC. Besides - the judge and I are always on opposite sides of the table so sure he’ll have preference for someone else
I’ll admit to loving my platinum HM, and to having another RG on the way. You’ll be more than happy. Romain’s West Coast US dealer has a couple new (and possibly a preowned) in stock I think including a rose gold HM last we talked. I can personally recommend the watches and dealer.
