    The article said the older bumpers were around 120 deg of rotation vs 330 deg on this new one.

    The De Bethune annual calendar is my I'm-buying-this-if-I-win-the-lottery watch. That grey dial is stunningly gorgeous. There are no adequate superlatives.

    I love the Starry Varius.

    Once in awhile you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

    Fun fact--I tried a deBethune on once, and at least on the one I tried, the lugs are spring loaded and nestle down onto your wrist. Very cool.

    Max Bill was an interesting-looking character.

    Yes, that or 5 WI5 5, either way the kerning is terrible or, maybe it's a code. And...if they were taking a publicity photo of what is essentially meant to be an accurate timing instrument, the least they could do is properly align the hands, I mean really...
