And Now for Something Completely Different -

From Graham!

This is the GEO.GRAHAM TOURBILLON.  It is limited to 100 pieces total.
An ultra-thin, 60 second tourbillon is found at the 6 o'clock position.  The case is crafted of pink gold and measures 40 mm in diameter.  

But for me, it is not the technical minutia.  I know, that is what makes this business tick ; )
No, for me it is the entire package.  The dial is particularly pleasing to look at, domed and finished with a white enamel lacquer.  All too often a gold watch is presented with blued hands that stick out like sore thumbs - not so in this case!  The hands, along with the blued screws on either side of the tourbillon attached to the dial's face are well balanced in hue and fit well with the overall aesthetic of the timepiece.  This is truly a beautiful watch that is not "of the moment" but rather one that will be passed from one family member to the next and worn - not just parked in a box.

Graham should be truly proud of this watch - it proves the beauty and soft power of restraint.  Well done!  And Graham you've really done it!  You've made me use a word I hate - timepiece ; )  For once it is appropriate!
