            Very nice. In person, how does the enamel dial differ from a regular old dial? Can you really tell?

              Thanks! The enamel dial is a big draw for me personally, that and I do like The Armoury too.
              In person, it's very much a subtle difference compared to regular (painted?) dials. I don't have another watch with a white dial but looking at the enamel, its specular highlights on the surface are a bit softer. The finish of the enamel on mine also isn't 100% glass-like smooth. I never looked at a Breguet enamel dial this close so I can't really say if it's like this across the board.
              Overall though, it's hard (for me) to tell enamel apart from regular old dials from more than 3ft away.

                Thanks. Apparently the cost of enamel dials is so high because so many break in production. It’s intriguing. I’d get the pink or blue one from anordain. Ball also makes an enamel dial but it’s pretty plain.

                    Thanks! I'm terrible at fit pics so I don't post any that would do the jacket justice. It's a safari jacket made from die workwear's summer tweed.
