Dan had posted this photo right after SIHH but since it was surrounded by other amazing timepieces some may have missed it out.

I think it will be excellent in platinum, don't you?

But I have the feeling the customer purchase the watch above expecting and demanding uniqueness for his design Maybe we'll get it in "just" white gold. Bill
It will look good in Pt or WG, but I think it will look the
