Awesome stuff !! The brushed finish is stupendous under magnification.

Ordered a new phone lens yesterday so will see how that performs when it arrives.

The level of attention to detail in something so small is really exquisite, shows real skill and a learned dedication from the watchmakers.

I like seeing the perfect imperfections from where itís been hand tooled, Iíve zoomed in on the pics so lost some of the quality but look at the work here..

Really is outstanding - amazing the sense of depth from all the layers of the movement visible through the openwork.

Had a couple of attempts at slow-mo and time lapse but really need better lighting!

Also as Iím not willing to unscrew the bracelet itís hard to get any decent pics of the rear of the movement.

But Iíll keep trying

What a thing of beauty, thanks for uploading man.

Damn what exhilaration looking at that fine finishing.

Now if you would excuse me, I think I need to change my pants now.
