    This is my grail too. I prefer the hands straight hands as opposed to the "scissor handle" hands.

    The Lange 1 Timezone is also nice too, but i prefer the PP

    I told you guys I saw this out and about--some owner of a mediterranean restaurant had it on and my jaw dropped.

    What do folks think of this?

    It's a pocket watch movement in a new case.

    The cheapest I've seen a real minute repeater is about $50k.

    I wonder if this would be just too big to wear on your wrist.

    Lange 1 is my "modest" grail. if the table scraps from your charity can be gathered up and turned into one of those for me, I'd be much obliged

    Also my modest grail. Although I think I would like something in platinum :embar:

    And maybe with a moonphase.

    Yes, the Emperador Tourbillon. I've also seen a skeletonized version (without diamonds) which was just stunning!

    Stitchy, that Lange 1 Tourbillon is fantastic. I saw one several years ago...even now just seeing its photo practically has me drooling! [​IMG]

    The thickness (or lack thereof) of the PIaget tourby is insane.
