I’m in the process of actively consolidating my collection, and will probably end with a collection of no more than 5 watches. This is both financially and philosophically motivated. As I curate my ever dwindling collection, my mind is pointed to the past, and to the watches that I admired years ago
But yeah, that’s just part of the aesthetics. Polarizing for sure. You either like it or you don’t. As for the size, the older ones packed in so much into the movements, the sizes really are explainable.
The inclined balance was the one thing that made this watch special. Now, it's just a very overpriced time-only watch, with questionable aesthetics. This is a huge miss in my book. The original balancier already trades well below retail for this new one, and I would personally go in that direction r
