I posted this earlier this week in the Public Forum where it was met with general disinterest. So I figured I'd try here...
I was initially on the fence about the design of the newest Rieussec, but it has been growing on me. I just saw the video and damn if this isn't my favorite iteration. The dial might be the cleanest of all the Rieussecs. No kitschy open heart or skeletonization. (No offense to those who love their open hearts...they just lose their luster with me quickly.) The dial texture might be the best dial change MBs made to the Rieussec line since they dropped the cotes de geneve panel and went to the grain d'orge in 2011. This is absolutely THE BEST lume integration of any high lux/high end watch I have seen. That said, it might be debatable if such a watch needs lume, but if it does it gets no better.
I think the Gen II Rieussec stands out from the Rieussec line with its simpler dial and grain d'orge dial, and Rising Hours stands out with its outstanding complication example, but there is a delicacy that this new "Homage to Nicolas Rieussec" has that may just float it to the top of the pack. What do you think?
