Giant perlage!

I came across this table at a little traiteur/café in Toronto called "Douce France", yes, just like the Georges Trenet song.

Perhaps it was taken from one of those large airport or railway clocks Dan was talking about??

The perlage is quite large as you can see.

(Actually, these tables are quite common but their surface obviously struck a chord (maybe the "lost chord")

I LOVE IT! :-)

Yes, I thought it was a very nice touch.

Couldn't agree more, La Mer rolls off the tongue...heart..........

With the look-alike guitar strings in the background I'm reminded of a rendition by Dgango Reinhardt. Nice One!

Great to hear from you Joseph, as always...

Warm regards

Thanks Berny,

The Georges Trenet version is the one I have ( a CD of his songs).

The other one is interesting but not very "douce" wink

Perlage baseplate for Panerai's in house movement?
