The New Mightier Than Mighty Chronograph

Postby koimaster » January 15th 2018, 9:49pm

The Double Split is lovingly referred to, by admirers and owners of this watch, as the Mighty Double Split. It truly is mighty in so many ways. Do keep in mind that we’re still talking about mechanics here, and we are all aware that every iPhone does the same trick. But that’s not the point. The point is that some functions can be achieved by a collection of plates, bridges, gears, levers, springs, and screws. And even better, it looks jaw-droppingly beautiful. And now it even got better, because there’s a Triple Split!

Yup. That's all right. I've got a big purple German helmet over here, ready for the polish. And if any of you stupid bastards want to chime in with "I love a simple dial" or "that dial's too busy," you can piss off right now!

That's incredible.

White gold case, limited to 100 pieces; sounds like it will be reasonably priced.

Good gravy. That's beyond the pale times 10.

That side photo of the movement? I had to ask for a cigarette afterward, and I don't smoke.

I enlarged one of the movement photos and thought I was looking at an album cover from The Alan Parsons Project..

Amen to that.

That may well be one of the most stunning watches I have seen. Those sub-dials, those hands, that case. And that movement. Some damned fine photo work, too.

If God himself made a watch, this might well be the one.
