I believe the red arrow is an early reference to original race direction signage on the course, though I have more often seen black and white. Chopard produces such slight variations in theme that if you have one Mille you have them all. They are superb in person... and they have a real sense of racing watch histrionics.

Well at least its not a red UK phone booth! It's interesting if you're into the show but should be priced like a Mickey Mouse watch. Themed watches are fine I buy them all the time in reference to motorsport.

Too bad they opted not to continue the octopus tentacles wwrapping around to the side and frpnt of the case and indexing the case back to the extended engraving onstead they did a hackneyed firearm style flourish. The big question is will it sag and fade and smeary ugly with age as all tattoos do amd require laser removal?

yep... Ferrari the world class marketing whores have met the perfect fit in the Watch world. You may think all their modernity is beautiful but you'll never find a thick enough condom to protect you from either aesthetic.... run away.

Yep round those edges down to almost flush with the back of the case and you've got less clunk and more style and period elegance. I'd buy it for 2 to 3K no more. For nine plus I could find a vintage nicely restored colorful bullhead... I just don't understand manufacturers criteria in fimal pricing when producing nonprecious metal large run watches.

the Polynesian numerial style is a nice change to see back again... since it's demise at the end of the psychedelic poster era was also needed.... hated those Polynesian Mood Music albums then; but they are strangely evocative now... like this watch. I'd definitely buy one.very nice.

I do like this watch and I like outer rotating bezel ring because it easier to manipulate under water with dive gloves on.

The image of a "face" is the most instinctive image in our minds. Hence, the Man in the Moon! This seems garish and ugly at first but it does soften and change aspect for me the longer I look at it. It really is innovative artistically... sure I'd like to see a more classically rendered Moon Man but this is pretty good.

Sigh! Am I really that old? Sometimes I hate history lessons. Oh well. Still have a few watches with Speidel bands, the small jewelry watch store down the street still sells NOS Speidel... wonder if they've omproved any from the hair biting bigs they were years ago. Definitely have a few old Bulova amd Elgin that could use a refit. BTW there should be a caption contest for that 77 print advert... hmmm what IS going on there? Older guy young girl, wife at home? Drinks with the office secretary I'll bet.

@DG Cayse @CG there is always inherent risk with any live ammo sure rim fire being extremely safe to handle... center fire soft primered being more risky to poor handling but all that aside, the manufacturer should assure buyers that they are inert rounds.

@Fraser Petrick @CG a "nasty blond" eh? "Dispatch"? As James would say..."Maybe later."
those Flobert rounds are rim fire .22 BB, mostly used on pests and targets. Good indoor range fodder but firearms for that caliber are hard to find outside of Europe. I wouldn't want to drop that watch at just the right angle per chance it could fire and kill or maim you. What I want is a Vickers parts watch to go along with my Aussie Water Cooled and then maybe a Bren watch, that would be very cool... and a Garand watch too. Endless possibilities in an overlooked market! BTW TSA would definitely confiscate it and you go directly to jail and then let your lawyer explain. In DC police are trying to enforce an empty brass ban, 1 year in jail and $1000 fine... absurd.
OK love it... but I am NOT wearing double knit brown pants, zipper boots and a big collar shirt to go with the "look". Sorry not gonna happen.

Try and pass this one off as a watch when going thru an airport... it's the "Mecca" part that would worry me!
"The complications must reflect the owner’s lifestyle and values. That’s why we do functions like pointing the direction to Mecca..."
Given that "lifestyle" consideration as mentioned; will it survive a C4 test?
