I did not 'love ' this dial when it debuted... But at just a glance a few moments ago, I thought... what is this fabulous Patek? So there is your answer.

I deeply 'fear' (chuckle) --based on the level of beautiful detail here--that some next series will kill me... Although I admire this watch, it is not my taste... BUT! There are TWO expensive CHRONOS I am prepared to 'die' for... 1. A re-issue of Breguet Military chrono. I will buy in less than 1 he
I think JLC scares many from buying new because of resale... but also this watch, while stunning and iconic, is a bit thick around the middle... Additionally, the alarm function, while coool, is not a 'sexy ability' like a Diver or Chrono. But I do love it.
