3. That VC is GORGEOUS.
Haha, I confused myself for a second. I guess I am more lax in my attitude towards my watches than my wimmenz
. I am just kidding around though. But yes, I think that perfection is a strange word. Especially in the manner that what is imperfect is what is oft considered perfection.

3. whats with PP and the tachys? they dont seem to add anything to the watches aesthetic, to me anyways, and i dont thing anyone actually uses them functionally.
In regards to (2), I think you are right. The dial is symmetrical, but it is asymmetrically oriented. A strange juxtaposition.
I think this is a great way to put it. I find that the Patek is disrespectful to the customer. That is just sheer laziness in my most humble of opinions. But I think in a way we make compromises with all of our watches. For example, with my MUT Moon, I think the crown is a little bit too small functionally speaking. But at the same time, aesthetically I am not sure if I would want it much bigger. Thus, it is a qualm that I am not sure how I would rectify. That certainly means it is not "perfect," but it is a compromise I am more than happy to live with.
Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to write all of that up. Their watches seem very interesting, and I am intrigued to see where the brand will go. They look very beautiful, but the design of some of them seem a bit off. I like the Duometre-looking one, it intrigues me. I hope that you enjoyed yourself traipsing down random alleyways in Oman, all for the purpose of investigating watches for your TWAT brethren.
I also really like the entry level one. For some reason or another, I have a fascination with squiggly hands.
