C'est tres cool, Alex!!
Especially in rose gold.
Don't take too long in posting more pics...
of Europe seems crazy-cool
and it brings back the memory from our tour when we were able to look under the microscope and view the very rare map of Portugal on another Mercator piece, just outstanding artwork.
and time. Just incredible. Many thanks.
Shows many places that I have visited. How about the movement - what can you share? Regards, Matt
Just looking at the dial. Superb art form with the shading and colors. Thanks Alex.
Mercator is really an unique watch...
I had the occasion to handle this watch, it is gorgeous, as all Mercators are.
But, the point, IMO, regarding the Mercator is to show old maps with old references (country, sea etc....).
The problem with this one is that the countries which are in the EU (at that time the EU wasn't composed of 27 countries) are separate from the others (see Norway and the Eastern countries). This is for me a bad mix of old maps, informations etc.... with nowadays geopolitical datas.
