So many features yet I don't think it looks any more busy than many chrono with moonphase dials. That is certainly dreamworthy :shock:

Impressive watch though! :thumbup:
Definitely the smartest comment I've read for a while. Lovely VC and a bewildering array of complications :shock:

I was loving everything about including the size, until I saw the word "million" in the price box.

At that point, I wept like a small child and went back to the g shock.

That vc really appeals if only for the sheer technical brilliance of all those complications. Haven't looked at the price but bet it's gazillions!

Got a thing for a Planet Ocean just now, but I have a number of divers already. Keep seeing others and wondering what to do

Damn, that's nice. It's like a panda (double panda?) version of your Speedy, even the lug shape is quite reminiscent of it.

Edit: Looking at it again, it's not a transplant into an early dot-over-90 case is it? :wink:

As you know Sir, that's my definition of pretty much the ultimate 8500 PO. Hope you get it!

If you let it stop, it would take forever to set all those complications.
Sure you could keep it on a winder, but causing thousands of francs damage every week in wear.

Not worth the hassle.
