    I expect to retrograde to be same as the Victory.

    Youíre correct - the exact same. It reaches 30 and then resets to the start for the next 30.

    The Bremont Hawking Collection!

    If anyone wants to watch the launch, you can do so. I’ve attached it below.

    I saw this point questioned on another forum and now I can't stop thinking about it.... how do you know if it's the first half or second half of the minute?!

    I mean it actually would not make any difference to my needs, and it's a lovely feature, but does it make any difference to anyone else?

    I've seen it on the Victory and it's lovely feature, completely different to anything I had seen before. I couldn't say for certain as it's not something that I thought about too much but couldn't you tell from the minute hand which half of the minute it was in?

    I agree but Iím slowly going the other way. I really like the rose gold version but I now prefer the white gold.

    Some of the close-up detail - the layering and texturing - on the dial is simply stunning.



    I look forward to seeing it in the flesh, thatís for sure.

    Thanks for the posting the close up picture. Unfortunately features like the concentric circles underneath the 'HAWKING' on the seconds subdial along with the red markers for the 10 sec intervals are things that you don't see on a virtual launch yet would be seen on a live launch as you can hold the watches.

    That blue dial really is a thing of beauty.
