 He actually works for Seiko now. Going to be working at the Miami boutique. Good dude.
What a nice discussion. :)    I prefer 37-40mm or so to fit me but agree 38 should work for just about everybody.  Another part of the equation is the thickness.  The Patek you posted is a nice 8.6mm, so that really adds to the overall 'dress-ability'  Once things get thicker (than maybe 12mm or so) they wear bigger and sportier for me.  It's a secondary part of the equation but still an important one.
5712 dial doesn't do it for me. Sometimes a lack of symmetry can work but not a fan here vs the 5711.
Now there's some first tier finishing...
When did I call you a troll? You do mix watch knowledge into your inflammatory rhetoric. It would be nice if you wanted to discuss things without all the song and dance because you are very knowledgeable. Nevertheless, the pictures you finally provided did not prove me wrong. I'm sure you'll espouse yet another long reply to this and then we'll go back and fourth the rest of the day but I view the finishing on the 12-600AT as overall better than the modern calibers...
Keep saying the same thing over and over and maybe you'll make it true.
You could have at least put in the effort to google some pictures after your personal insults before.  Or a simple, sorry I made something personal that has no need to be - would be lovely..   As usual you take a grain of a truth and stretch it into your full conclusion.     You are correct in that, more precise machining will result in some better elements of finishing, mostly consistency as you mentioned correctly.  You're taking for granted that machining is the...
I realize you continue to try and change the argument to Journe.  And yes, I'm well aware that finishing isn't near the top of the list for Journe personally.  But I'm also aware that a lot of hand finishing goes into each piece, I've seen it myself at his manufacture in Geneva. Which incidentally took a bit more than 3 minutes.   Patek's higher end pieces are finished better, but in the entry-level they've slipped.     Please enlighten us with evidence...
And if you think this is at the same or lower level of finish as the patek I posted before you'd be on a lonely island by yourself.  
  Wow you got me!  Make me vomit? You sound like a child. Embarrassing for the whole board really.
