The already large Valjoux-based movement is dwarfed by the case.

That’s because this monster measures 48mm in diameter and is 17.9mm thick.

Oh, and this Invictissot weighs 287g.

Any idea what the fuck were they thinking when they designed this? I haven’t the faintest...

Wing must have not made a payment on his last order of Aragon cases, so Tissot swooped in for a killer deal
