    It verges on the ostentatious, but I like.

    It's like both elements are competing for my eye.

    The top part is too busy and eye-grabbing, which I do not like.

    I think when you see the tourbillon in motion you wont have that problem.

    Minerva's 150th anniversary watch. I've always dug the complexity of tourbillon movements... I'm especially a big fan of the jump hour complication. I've seen much better executed tourbillon designs, but I still like it.

    I am terribly sorry, I am glad you like it.
    To me it looks very sinister.
    I got chills.

    It's a bit too "LOOK AT ME I'M A TOURBILLON" for me, but whatever floats your boat.

    This and any other watch with the tourbillon on show remind me of those Japanese-make cars with neon-lit undersides and transparent engine covers - i.e. showy.
