    Nothing much more to say about that. Exquisite. I'm interested in the variation on the Glashütte "spiral" that they have on the main gear. It looks like brighter lines inside of the twist, or is that a lighting illusion? Lovely finishing!
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    Haven’t had a chance to do any macros yet, so I can’t say for sure. I should look in my book and see if it gives a clue.

    Congrats! Seems to check a lot of your watch likes. I would have guessed Root Beer, but not red. This seems more brown than the GS Godzilla which might be a similar Red in outdoor lighting. That is a real bear to get the dial pics right.

    Oh, it's definitely red, I think the brown strap sets it off nicely. Seems to me it's also about as far away from something you'd get for yourself is you can get.

    Gorgeous watch. I've always liked their products, but this one... wow.

    Here are photos from the book showing the work on the main wheel. I'm no expert, but it does look like those lines are cut deeper/differently.
