It is the dial where everything falls apart. This is an instance where asymmetry fails. The watch is too crowded on the right, and too sparse on the the left. The amount of gold color is a bit obnoxious (the lines are too thick) and the chronograph disc implementation seems like an afterthought. Yea, it has a nice looking flying tourbillon - but just because it can. This doesn't really add much to the design. Is it just me, or do the "12" and "6" Arabic numeral hour indicators feels like they don't fit in with the rest of the design? Overall, these elements taken together make for a watch that I feel should never have been. I am sure that the finish and quality of the watch are fine, and if you must have it, go ahead. But in this watch lover's opinion, this isn't a good looking timepiece - and not worthy of what Harry Winston typically puts their name. Look for it soon!
