    dear WUS Members,

The 925 Sterling Silver dial is entirely made by our maste engravers and craftsmen - the engraving alone require +50 hours of work. The watch case is 42mm/10.5mm with double anti-relfex coated saphirre on front and double AR saphirre on the see-through caseback. Flame blued steel hands and a genuine hand made Louisiana Alligator strap with an deployant buckle. The movement is a Swiss Made ETA Unitas 6498-1 with skeletonized main plate to show the working balance wheel. Only 20 Timepieces are available and all Timepieces will be engraved by customers special requeirements (we can engrave your name instead of our Tourby logo). The models start with the "Decorated" model for 2.000 Euro NET (2.379 Euro incl. 19% German taxes) and the "Special" models be with hand engraved movement, Swan Neck regulator, Glucydur Balance with screws, Perlage, polished surface and Swirls polished winding wheels for higher price (price is depending on the details).

    I perceive the open heart to be disruptive to the dial designs as such and the dial unbalanced though. The 10:10 pic looks nice but what about 8:45 ?
    Kind regards

    Very impressive watch. But I would expect a model named "Planetarium" to at least have a moon phase complication.

    8:45 looks bad on every watch

    i can understand that this watch model is not "everybodys" taste. It is a very fancy model and not all people like fancy watches. But some people are looking for something special. It is ok with me that this watch will not found in everybodys collection. It is a exclusive model and very rare. And i don´t need to sell hundrets or thousands to cover my costs.

    But the "open" anything worth a second view... because the balance is very big and heavy (not the small balance like on the Asian open hear watches) and it is very impressive to see the Heart ticking ... especially on the higher decorated model which comes with a screwed Gluydur balance (pictures will post next week)
