    Yes, Mueller to a degree but also very reminiscent of Dubey & Schaldenbrand. Anyway, these twintechs were very limited editions that have all been sold from what I can gather.

    Cylon - to each his own ;-) I understand they might be a bit fussy for some.

    Very nice.

    For me it's a tough call between the striking 10th and the 38mm; the WIS in me is obliged to be prejudiced against the spacer in the S-10th, but damn does it look nice with its modern proportions on the wrist.

    Fantastic watch. I tried one on a few months ago at a local AD. Yours?

    That's true. I see influences from FM, D&S and also maybe Bedat on these dials

    As for the Octa being one of the leat Journe designs, maybe that is why I like it. At least for me it has enough Journe DNA in the case shape, dial, hands, but it looks more finished to me than the riveted dials of his more complicated pieces. I find the rivets are novel, but distracting, and I have rarely seen one of his more complicated pieces where I actually liked the subdial layout that was chosen, but to each his own. In the end, simple or complicated, his watches are beautifully finished, unfortunately their reputation for spending lots of time in their repair shop would keep me from pulling the trigger on one.
