The dial itself looks to be pt, like gold is often used for guilloche dials

An asymmetric touch, something I'm warming to thanks to FPJ's taste for it.

No, not at all. I imagine it is a quite subtle detail on the wrist, though?

I'm wearing my Breguet 7727 (10hz), so maybe I have a tolerance for such things!

Maybe, maybe... ;) [nt]

Excellence Platine

I think all of the watches in that collection have platinum dials that are marked in the same way. I think it detracts from the dial and I prefer the other available colors anyway.

Yes, you are right. I always disliked this detail...

Here is one of the watches I passed on because of that! ...  

That's really something! [nt]

And I love it... A pity. [nt]

 By: amanico : February 12th, 2019-10:50

I can see why. [nt]

Looking on the bright side...

Yeeees! [nt]

Tacky is THE word. [nt]

I agree. It’s a magnificent time piece. Introvert beauty so why on earth is they had to put Pt950 on the dial? A VC doesn’t need that.

Another beautiful Pt creation from VC.

I love the detail of the Pt thread, it makes the strap look special. Thanks. Vte

I like it a lot! [nt]

Very nice but maybe the black dialed platinum version is still the best?

 By: COUNT DE MONET : February 12th, 2019-07:32
Thank you for the news.

Love the regular versions.

 By: Thewindingstem : February 12th, 2019-09:56
this line is obscenely overpriced.

looks great & i like the dial but...

 By: maverickmahesh : February 12th, 2019-09:59
IMHO when i look to the same Pt case with the grey dial in the catalog - the premium is difficult to justify. thanks for sharing. Best, mahesh.,

Owning two of them, incl. the platinum slate dial one, I wonder if I should be tempted.

I love this watch, but other prios must come first. Lovely though.. Alex

I love it

 By: Winfizz : February 12th, 2019-13:25
The watch was shown at the SIHH and I found it as likeable as my previous ones. ...  

I really could have used a warning before the last photo. :-D

I think the CEP pieces really appeal to a particular sub-goup of collectors among which I count myself. That is an incredible trio you have...honestly jaw dropping amazing. I love seeing the "Pt. 950" inscribed on each dial, too. ;-) All the best, Robert

Flat and bland, and a missed opportunity

 By: Velociphile - No longer in the building : February 18th, 2019-08:46
It is cute but (disclosure I own a pink gold version).... It's a bit of a shame that the flat frosty finish of the dial negates the depth that is achieved in the standard pieces where the subseconds dial is cut with concentric finish. The minute track als... 

Platinum details

 By: Park : April 14th, 2019-06:58
I learned yesterday, upon first seeing this in the metal, that platinum is used not only for the case, dial, and strap threads, but also for the hands. I found the "Pt950" on the dial barely visible without magnification. It certainly isn't "showy," as it... 

Thanks for sharing that detail about the hands

 By: respo : April 16th, 2019-13:14
I had wondered about that and keep forgetting to ask if the hands were also made of platinum. Nice! It is a shame that you do not wear the slate gray dial version you have more often. I have seen is stunning and deserves to be worn. I must admi...
