    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.

    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.

    I'm dressed like a grown-up today, with a proper hand-wound watch.

    I know that I sound like a broken record, but how are you guys posting these seeded images? I can't load an attachment, and when I try to attach the imgur link it says "not a proper image file." There doesn't appear to be a URL image button anywhere?

    Looking at the post above, this code looks like some button or script made it, but where can I find that?
