    Ornate Pocket Watch Movement Art Design Competition!: )

    I know that Waltham has gorgeous art deco designs on many of their movements, I bet others do as well. What is your most elaborate, beautiful, intricate, ornate design that you either own or have admired?

    I'm a bit of a purist; I'm less impressed by fancy designs, and more impressed by things like flat black polishing, clean surfaces, and precise regular bevels.

    Not so much elaborate, but I admire the beautiful handwork of the engraver who 'decorated' this
    movement with the makers name and address.

    Lovely scrolling script which, i.m.o, complements the movement rather than stealing the limelight.
