    Beautiful piece! Congrats

    I'm yet to learn about chronographs so apologies if this is a silly question, but the 'pusher' for the mechanism - is that it on the end of the crown?

    Hi really nice watch - I'm curious as to how big it is ? It looks in the 34-35mm range ? Cheers, Scott

    Beautiful...nicely done. Chronos are still beyond my skills - but I will get there. Thanks for sharing.

    WOW! Congrats. That is some very nice work.

    Chronos are still too complex for me to take apart yet, but hopefully soon.
