As for photographt tips your photo is really good so don't know what tip to give you other than shoot photos under Raw format, they are easier to work with.

and I must say that you have a very nice Chronomètre Royal, which we don't really often see.

Maybe some other shots, and one from the mouvement?

Hi All:

The first picture was taken under halogen light on a bowl of glass fruit!  These pictures I took today under natural light, which gives a very different feel I think.  Its amazing how the delicate brushed finish on the lug tops and case sides unifies the design.  And white gold looks sooooo soft ;-)

Alex, thank-you for pointing me to the article on the history of Chronometre Royal.  Yes, the lugs curve downward and help the watch hug the wrist.  They give it a larger presence than what seemed typical of the times.

Can anyone tell me the winding characteristics of the 1072 movement...bi-directional?  I'd like to set it up properly on the winder.  Cheers.

as far as I know it is bi-directional but will need to check (nt)
