What's better than a Tour de l'Ile?

2 Tour de l'Iles! Including the unique piece made with black dial and auctioned by Antiquorum for over CHF 1.8 million in 2005.

Some side by side photos I found on my hard drive, sorry for the poor scans but they were taken years ago!

Your title reminded me of the famous "what's worse than finding a worm in your apple?' Finding half a worm...
Wow, that is amazing...

Out of the two versions do you have a perference Alex? The black dial with rose gold sure looks great, but the other is quite beautiful as well.  This is a tough one, not that you could go wrong with either. Thanks for the great images!



Alex, once we could have bought one each:-)

...it is so complicated, it looks like a fake !

Sorry, the main reason is that I like simple watches.

All the best to my fellow loungers,


PS: les goûts et les couleurs...

Totally understand, Berny

If I saw somebody with one of those on their wrist, my frist reaction would be fake as well.  BR, Dan

You won't have that problem...

as you will never see anybody wearing one. The problem is that body builders do not have that kind of money, and they are the only ones who could wear one all daydevil

I'm no body builder but.....
