excuse my ignorance but what does the dial in the top left do? 

 

Power reserve. 

Then separate timezones on each dial really with separate movements that are harmonically linked to make them more accurate. It's really a marvel. And so is the cost. Eye watering.   

It is amazing what $75K will buy you these days! Journe is indeed very special.

Is it a 38mm?

Stunning and while it's a little odd from afar when it's on your wrist it just works. Exceptionally comfortable. 

I have always admired this watch. The great Jack Forster sat next to me recently on a flight and was wearing the VC American 1921. 

Chefs are very often serious watch collectors. Eric Ripert owns this timepiece along with many others. He actually wears his 1921 while cooking at Le Bernardin.

Beautiful watch Rob. I can see how the offset hour markers would line up with the eye very well for left hand wearers. Interesting that the second hand is at a different angle than the main dial, but somehow even looks more "right".

I have bought a couple of watches recently and not sure I posted.

Bought the 100th anniversary Cartier Tank MC 1904 movement and also bought the 40th anniversary Cartier de Santos ( large) and both have found a place within my normal rotation. 

I've always been attracted to those square Cartier watches with the roman numerals. Though never felt they fit my style for some reason. Beautiful pieces sir. 

Just wound and set the date on my IWC Portuguese 7 day to wear tonight. Tonight is a combination celebration of a new job I recently accepted and hitting a local jiujitsu fight night tournament with a few dozen matches scheduled. The watch and the jiujitsu feel like a bit of an incongruity, but tonight is a celebration so I don't really care.
