    Best finished movement

    Before I start this I just want to say I did use the search function, but didn't want to bring back a 3 year old thread.

    what is your opinion is the finest finished watch movement? Price does not matter, but pics are a requirement.

    here's mine, jean Daniel Nicolas 2 minute tourbillon.
    notice the u shaped cotes de geneve. It took 3 months for him to teach himself to execute it like that.

    Maybe more complicated a caseback, but the JDN is actually flawless. Him, philippe dufour, and roger smith are the only makers I've ever seen that use round beveling that ends in sharp points. Also on the face, the giant tourbillon bridge is black polished by hand for a week.

    Omega's Co-axial movements take the cake for me:

    If you're going to post photos of movements, avoid the enhanced promotional photos.

    This is a real life photo of the JDN.



    I prefer the Dufour Simplicity myself.



    The Journe Chronometre Bleu is also very nice.

    If we're talking f.p. Journes, the 30th anniversary tourbillon is amazing.

    Can't forget this one.
    Bexei dignitas. Don't worry, that isn't the actual case of the watch, it is a holding case for the movement.

    I don't think a plate with cotes de geneve constitutes a well finished movement, but THIS is a well finished movement. hubba hubba...

    SBGH001 is my favorite movement in my collection. There are many beautiful movements but this is the nicest for my budget.
