You change the premise of the conversation and then go about proving your point.    What you started with "...movement finishing should not be a deciding factor in picking a watch."  is not "I'd like to see objective evidence that Patek is "reducing quality." "   Your statement about movement finishing may be true for most, including myself. (I do know a couple collectors who actually do heavily weigh finishing but I wouldn't say they're the norm) Finishing is,...

 My AD said they got 4 so far.
 Thanks so much! I've had the CS for a year and a half now and it has only grown on me more since getting it. My wife's Elegant is only a few months old but she's pretty much obsessed with it (to the detriment of the other nice watches she has).For me, Journe is such a great mix of genuine watchmaking, aesthetics, and his personal passion.
