A Study of Two Movements

Presented here are two similar movements with very different treatments.  The partially skeletonized Vacheron cal. 1120 has the most gorgeous rotor and the usual superb finish work.  The fully skeletonized Audemars cal. 2120 is also an outstanding achievement in craftsmanship, plus it shows all the nifty bits.  Both the same but different!

Since we're talking about the 1120, here's my more modest piece:

It's a beautiful AP even though I'm not especially excited over skeletons! It's just too much. Since several years back I have a new Perseux 7001 laying in a drawer and remeber, this is only a raw ébauche! hej doc

Geez, Doc, that is gorgeous!  Two questions: 1. Any thoughts on how this is related to the Peseaux 260 movement? 2. As you don't like skeletons, how about selling this one to me?  Best, GaryG
