First of all, there's one for $2,000 on www.blingdaily.com
Second of all, I was just looking at the movement image and noticed something that isn't on the typical Valjoux 7750... gold chatons! And hey, it's got an extra jewel too (26) and the mainspring must be different because the power reserve is 44hrs, just like an IWC...
I then went looking around at other ML masterpiece watches and the 6497 pieces seem to have not just gold chatons but also angled bridges.
Now granted ML is using ETA bases here, but I do wonder if they are a bit underappreciated given the finishing they apply -- especially if there is additional functional finishing that goes on beyond the decorative finishing above (not that chatons and anglage are merely decorative, but it would be interesting to see if they, say, finished the top plate any better than base ETA spec).
