I had a chance to view these two beauties recently

The beautiful Mercator and the Dual Time Regulator.  I really wanted to buy them both, but alas, I did not.  These are beautiful in the metal.  That is my Traditionelle peeking in from the right side.

This photo truly does not do them justice.  Both are amazing examples of the craft.  If I were buying that day, it would have been a really tough decision, but I think I would have gone for the Mercator, in part because I am still in need of that beautiful 1120 movement.  Wow, is it gorgeous.  However, the case back that closes over the sapphire back on the Dual Time is great too.  Then, there is also the regulator movement...  but the alternate display of time in the Mercator... oh God... I could never decide!

I love both; but have always loved the Dual Time Regulator. Although it

has a non in-house movement; it is one of the all time gorgeous dials. I like this design a lot more than the new Harmony Dual Time.

I wish VC would bring the old DTR back with in-house movement.

Didn't another manufacture recently do that?

And I think that turned out pretty well for them.  I, too, would love to see a new in-house DTR.
