Is that a single-piece back? I thought single-piece backs were reserved for patterned fabric, to show the uninterrupted pattern in all its glory. Any reason you opted for it?BTW, everything looks wonderful! I noticed in your other posts that you were frowning - if I were you, I would have a big smile on my face!
@Belligero, great watch! Congrats. Did I remember correctly that you have a 116520 as well? Will it survive the culling?
