WOW terrific job I am not a lover of the Hour hand but everything else is stunning especially the tint on the Yellow Sapphire . I bet you are well chuffed with it

Fantastic Bruce, what a cracking watch.

The double bubble glass looks great and with the yellow tint really compliments the watch. Like John says I am not so sure about the hour hand though possibly its just a slight distortion from the angle of the pictures through the domed crystal. It certainly looks awesome on your wrist.

You must be thrilled with the results and looking forward to enjoy wearing the watch and quite rightly too. Very Happy

What's not to like. . . I like the hand set, and the domed crystal adds not only depth but also skews the dial at different angles.
The domed crystal you fitted on my 009 has the same effect to a lesser degree.
Very nice touch with the yellow tint too

Great work Bruce, I really like it. I think the fact that it is hard to photograph adds to the appeal.
