just spent some time with the gorgeous Bi-Retrograde made for Cortina

I'm a huge fan of the Patrimony Contemporaine Bi-Retrograde (for a write up on this model click here, there was a special edition in platinum made in late 2007 for Singapore retailer Cortina in 35 pieces and an amazing ruthenium dial.

I had only seen photos but got to spend some time today with a model that a collector had on his wrist and all I can say is I WANT ONE!!!
What a watch! I love the case of the Patrimony Contemporaine, it fits perfectly on the wrist and the double retrograde hands fill the space nicely, the ruthenium dial and white metal case are severley cool. Definately a watch with immense presence (the RG version is really high on my wish list)

as we are now seeing as an option on the platinum Patrimony models? Gorgeous watch.....though I might go with the EP Retorgrading watch if I could choose between the two. Bill

the new dials available on the platinum models are slate grey but not ruthenium plated
I saw this one recently in Cortina (or was I drunk? :p)

Definitely a nice watch and many non-WIS friends whom I showed the watch to agreed. They even like this one more than my Patrimony boutique edition!
No doubt, the Bi-retro looks much much better with a white dial (PT
