The Don Pancho - Innovation Driven by Purpose
Coming back to the dial, the original dial is off course the real stuff, it bears the evidence about the original story of this watch, the signs only a real life could draw.
As the story tells us, this watch was built for an individual called 'Don Pancho' who was in the mining business, in need to see and hear his watch when strolling around his latest acquisitions.
At that time in the European sense a probably super-rich from the 'New World', since everything outside Europe was the 'New World'. A predecessor of the today's Tycoons from all over the world.
This purpose driven origin is for me the most significant indication.This watch was on the forefront of innovation, it was made before the Haute Horologerie Maisons start to build Grand Complications en masse.
But now the more practical question: It is wearable? Oh yes, of course it is.
