    Yes most hands are curved to match the glass cover or the face but yours seems to be touching the face already. Unless it is in a oblique angle. Better get it fixed, it is worth it.

    You never own a Patek, you only look after it for the next generation....

    Erm... not in the near future... but roam around peninsular ( I believe almost everyone here does ) you'll notice there is one Speedmaster Professional on sale in one of those 2nd hand shop (the one opposite the 2nd Rolex outlet)...

    Everytime I walk pass there I'll just have to stare at the Rolex Daytona... nb... used also 16k for a stainless steel version...

    IWC GST alarm in SS. They have Titanium version but they are old watch and not sure if they still sells them now. JLC Master Compressor is nice.

    Sorry forget to add if you are getting the Compressor Alarm like the one I have, I have a opinion on it.
    The design is not practical, maybe it was designed by a lady for men so don't understand it.
    The newer Amvox is better, design by men for men. (Met the designer before and he is really good).

    Yes but a heavily modified El Primero, it is not the same anymore.
    Anyway I find normal Daytona overpriced except for the Paul Newman ones which is collectable.

    Yea... I find them overpriced too...

    btw, anyone knows how the tourbillion movement looks like? in what ways is it different from normal automatic movement?

    Planty of pic on the net but there are different Tourbillion movement.
    Some like the flying Tourbillion are used by Blancpain for some of their watches are not considered by purist to be actual tourbillion. Latest development are 2 axis and 3 axis tourbillion. Now this is a sight to behold. You can see some tourbillion movement at the following web site for JLC.
