Congratulations ! - I am envious,a gorgeous example and an immaculate looking movement in a stunning case and bracelet.I am a greta fan of these 'ultrathin' movements.I would have liked to pick up a reasonably priced VC based automatic caliber 1120 as well,but had to settle on the equivalent Audemars Piguet automatic movement 2120 - only movement (and ultrathin) used by AP,VC & PP and hihly regarded. Anyway,here is my very modest offering below - added  the Malte Buckle myself,later. What I would like to state is that if you are careful and patient,it is possible to pick up good examples of these movements at a fraction of the price they would have sold at in their heyday.In many ways they remind me of the when people like Mercedes used to make cars at at no expense spared - the two caliber watches mentioned above,hark back to the days when these watches were expensive to produce,even by the standards of the day,let alone today - so grab an icon while you can,thats what I say.
you probably know how difficult it was to make such a case and
