Audemars Piguet: Yes. I am hoping for some comments about movement finishing.

At this price point, I'm expecting Geneva Seal level quality finishing. No wire spring parts. And generally a top quality movement akin to Vacheron Constantin and Patek Philippe.

Audemars Piguet: Oh finally!

Turning the watch backwards to 9PM and then forward to 2AM would be annoying if you had to do it for a lot of days!

Horological Meandering: Possibly. So far you're mostly right.

Maybe the Octo Solotempo and Finissimo design just relates better with thin watches. Who knows. I bet they have all the prototypes at their factory of thick watches in the Solotempo/Finissimo shape. And it probably just looked too bulky.

Horological Meandering: They almost definitely tried both cases, and probably Fabrizio eventually chose to go in the "Roma" shape in the end.

I'm trying to picture this watch in the Solotempo case, and I can't say you're wrong, it probably would look good in that case!

Patek Philippe: I gotta go see Jeddah and the 5270P!

Now if only you were in Jeddah the same time I was there, I could knock two things off my list in one trip!

I wonders if it sounds good too! Carillon? 3 Gongs? Impressive!

Bulgari: I also have to add, I like your sweater and both rugs in the background.

I don't know if you're at home or out of the house, but the rugs in the background look great. And that's an awesome sweater too! Sweater goes well with a cool black watch. Very cool and thanks for introducing this awesome limited edition to WatchProSite. I didn't even know about this one until you

Horological Meandering: Ahh! Good point!

But the current one already has a DLC buckle I bet. Then again, if a client scratches the DLC buckle, replacing a buckle isn't too bad from a cost perspective.
