    Very nice ......

    But I'm puzzled - the horological machine looks particularly inefficient.. to the point of being completely ineffective... or is it that it has more hidden mass below the surface for one side of the rotor that we can't see from the photo ?

    I guess it's a matter of personal preference but other than the Blancpain most of those are too fancy for my tastes. This is about the right level of decoration for me:

    I would put money on it having a one-sided hidden mass.

    It has to. There isn't any way around that.

    Even plain mechanical movements look great. Nothing like a display back. I realize that's not a display back, but if it were I'd still stare.

    MB&F always does it up so properly. I don't know how I could pull off one of the HM series of watches, but the movements are amazing. The latest exposé on aBtW about the Space Pirate movement was great.
    It is now my duty to completely drain you.

    Are you guys sure? It's not gravity but inertia that makes the rotor move. Automatics do work in space.

    And for some more pics, a few examples from the Dutch watchmaker Van der Klaauw:
