    Pretty high, I'd guess - first, try calling the boutique.

    Availability depends on which one you are talking about, but as gdl said, all of them are within reach.

    Just remember there are three versions. The worldwide edition will be the easiest to obtain. There are a few taunting me on chrono24. I am unsure about the availability of the 2011 (black casa fagliano strap) US edition from the boutique, but there is one on TZ right now. You will need to call the boutique for the 2012 (brown casa fagliano strap) limited edition.

    I actually made some guttural noise today when I saw it. Then I had to explain to my friend why I made such a sound. Then she judged me.


    Well, everyone is entitled to their opinions, however incorrect they may be :fistbump:. It is a bit of an interesting style though, kind of F.P. Journe-ish. It would look better right-side up I think as well.

    As far as I am concerned, Kari can do no wrong.

    Also, for an excellent read:

    I don't find the design attractive.

    IMO, case/dial design is usually the most lacking skill for independent watchmakers
