+ 1. The 44mm Assman is nice, but hoped to see something more than new dials for a watch sneak previewed last year.

262

And as far as the SD, someone else mentioned it was also a tribute watch...

$42,000 USD iirc.

Yeah price is crazy for me but not for people who can afford it smile.gif

Something tells me that in life this Rolex looks much better than on photos.

The Grande Cosmopolitan Tourbillon is designed for the world traveller who wishes to keep track of both the home time and the destination time while travelling.

The home time remains an unchanging point of reference and is presented at 6 o’clock on a dedicated 24-hour dial with a day/night indicator.

The destination time appears at the centre of the main dial and tracks the local time at a given location away from home.

To begin using this exceptional timepiece, the owner first sets the hour and minute of the home time, which is followed by the synchronization of the home and destination times.

When selecting the home time, the owner sets the time zone governing his or her usual place of residence, selecting it from among 37 different world time zones on the city ring, including those that respect 30-minute (e.g. Delhi) and 45-minute offsets (e.g. Eucla), and then adjusts for Standard Time (STD) or Daylight Saving Time (DST).

The time zones on the city ring are indicated using three-letter IATA codes (international airport codes, e.g. FRA for Frankfurt am Main, LAX for Los Angeles International, DXB for Dubai, etc.) and are displayed in two small windows at 8 o’clock on the dial, one dedicated to Standard Time (STD), the other to Daylight Saving Time (DST).

The owner then sets the Perpetual Calendar to reflect the current weekday, date, month and (leap) year.

What do you guys think about the new Pano design? I really like how they slim the bezel.. This seriously might be my next watch.

This is the watch my wife bought me for graduating from my MBA program.  I love it.  Zenith El Primero Chronograph Open.

I like these new hands and thinner bezel but IMO the dial doesn't look nearly as nice without the interlacing silver rings and edges

What they should really do is a steel Panomaticlunar with a gold moon. That would be the bees knees

Man, I really love the new PML and PMR, and this is from someone who ADORES the old PML. If this new one is my favorite, the old one is probably my second favorite.
post #10993 of 48312
I like the simpler dial on the PML. The rings just made it too busy for me.
