    I have a similar watch by Girard-Perregaux. It sets in another case (which has the lugs) via a pressure fit with a plastic ring. So you only have the movement part of the watch.

    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    And a 'blue' 12 on the dial makes it even more attractive (and rare)

    When I retired I figured I'd have all the time in the world to re-set up the watch room - re-organizing and setting up a light box, et.al. Now that I am several years into retirement I realize life had other plans for me... as did my wife!

    The room is now mostly a storage room - right now most of the collectibles are crammed into a fireproof filing cabinet (with overflow in waterproof tubs) ... and the whole house is a giant mess as we are both painting the interior and are trying to find space for all my mother-in-law's furniture. To top it all off, the pics of the collection are on a disk that I can not now read in the new computer... more work!

    This request will have to wait until after all this summer's work subsides... sorry.
