That does look great but I’d rather have this 356...

Not sure I'm feeling the distressed brown dial. Price on request? :scratch:

I like the dial. I guess it will be one or the other for most people. I can’t imagine price is much different than a standard 356. Sinn frowns upon marking up LEs too much.

I like that. I’m not a fan of non-English date wheels when other text is in English. Feels gimmicky. This primarily applies to Sinn and Seiko.

Faded dial and nonfaded date wheel bothers me.
