Cartier: Hmm interesting

I never knew there were two version of the minute repeater movement. I have only seen the one shown on the bottom. The one on top looks to be much higher end with a free sprung balance, better bridge architecture, and finer beveling on the bridges.

Cartier: Missed opportunity

I had a chance at one of these about a month ago but could not pull the trigger due to the asking price. This is one of lowest numbered production models Cartier has ever done.

Patek Philippe: De Bethune, easily

The hand guilloche on the dial itself makes it no contest. If it's the re-release of the DB8 then the movement is no contest either.

Omega: Just another Speedy

It's just another Speedy to me. The fact that it's a non-LE means that Omega intends to produce as many as possible but not be held to producing a set amount if for some reason it doesn't sell well.

Cartier: Is it platinum?

I've only seen the burgundy text on their platinum watches. Beautiful piece.

Cartier: Quality of polishing service

How good would you say the polishing service from Cartier is? I want to get some of the deeper scratches out of my Tortue but I'm hesitant to send it in because I'm afraid they might over-polish to the point of losing the case shape.

Cartier: Excellent piece

For some reason this two-tone version looks better to me than the all-gold or all-steel versions. It has just the right amount of rose gold accents.
