    I don't know. Their tourbillons ha e always been rather out there looking. They've had some "modern" designs.

    Agree it's a bit of a shame they're pumping out the Beihai case. Could do with some more variation

    Must say I'm warming to the design.
    Kind of wished it was on bracelet. not a fan of the lug design. but an all-steel would've been great.

    "only" 3650 USD

    Also found it quite interesting that the contact email on the Bwaf website is now: beijing-watch@fiyta.com.cn

    Anyone read anymore on the collaboration? From the address it seems Beijing will be a part of Fiyta...

    I like it, all but the price....
    Then again, compared to Swiss offerings, it's still quite a bargain I guess.
