Hi Alex, Do you have a wrist scan of this boutique edition? Having seen both versions in the metal, which do you prefer and why? Do you know when first shipments are scheduled? Thanks Joe
Unfortunately no wrist shot of the limited edition but my preference

goes hands down to the non limited model, I love the herringbone motif with discreet blue lines and the rose gold hands. The whole works beautifully. The 1972 models are currently being assembled and the first ones will be hitting the stores in March / April
just modified the original post with a wrist shot

Thank you for the insight ( what fascinating job!) and the wrist shot, it's more real than the PR photo, hence better perception :-)
Thanks, Alex
