As Ben has stated not many of of knows these watches but I much prefer the guilloché dial by Kari Voutilainen on this model.

Some Details on the movement would be good.
In-house movement – Hand-wound – 35h power reserve, with constant force (stop system) – 21,600 vph (3Hz) – 36 jewels, partially set in solid gold chatons – Free sprung with Phillips terminal over coil curve with triangle hairspring stud – Hacking seconds – Hours, minutes, small seconds, governor speed regulator

Curious what do you not like about the dial?

The KV dials are very nice but it's easily a USD7K to USD10K premium on top of the already substantial price for the watch so I decided not to go for it. Salmon dial is usually not my thing, but the color matches well with the sheen of the WG case and the blue strap and everything seems to fit very well. In fact, Gronefeld often use this exact same combination for many of their promotions.

My word, that’s a fabulous timepiece, so much to admire without even wearing it

Gosh that's a beautiful piece to wake up to and view here this morning. Thank you for posting it, and congratulations! That movement is mesmerizing, perhaps overshadowing the beautiful dial. Enjoy!

Great choice ben although I disagree many people here love independents its just only few can afford the truly high end ones and as such have to admire from afar.
