Quick question on the new Patrimony Tourbillon

The dial is slightly off, with the gap between the rail track and the case wider at the bottom than at the top. 
I had noticed it before, but was wondering - is this because of the way the movement is structured, or is it an artistic decision on VC's part?

You'll notice that the line of the 9 - hour/minute pinion - 3 axis does not line up with the center of the crown, but is just "north" of it. This is due to the design of the movement, and in deciding to make the minute track a perfect circle, it is ex-centric to the round dial. I like the slight asymmetry. Bill
the hour and minute markers are off center and higher off due to the

large tourbillon cage. The rail track design is just a design choice
Thanks Bill and Alex

for confirming what I thought. Bill, agree with you  - the dial looks very nice this way!
