Let's just say that this ONE snapshot captured the INTENDED move "in the best way possible."
With a Nautilus on the wrist, I can execute a variety of largely unnecessary acrobatic moves to swiftly attend to one of my daughters' potty needs.

Case in point. Here is Vacheron's perpetual calendar chronograph reference 47112, which didn't really need any upsizing at its 39mm size:Here is the model that's currently in production, up sized to 41/42mm but with the same movement. I took this pic when visiting VC's boutique in NYC with @Dino944, so that's actually his wrist:They are both beautiful watches, but I just can't help seeing (and obsessing over) all the white space in the larger version.
