Lead Wrote:Thank you Shing and KS for your comments. I'm too am concerned with the rose gold on 502213 being too flashy for my taste and so my shortlist for a white dial seem to be down to the PT piece. A friend did advise me not to spend too much extra on the PT piece given difference can be used to get another watch! However at this point I just wanna make sure of getting just the one that I truly like.

Is it worth the additional cost despite the platinum and limited pieces?have u also considered this piece ? I do not know the ref and believe it is platinum, and would very much like to know:well, my 2 cents is that 502301 is Platinum, LE, and will be rare. Given that its platinum, I don't think production will become regular every year, a limited edition stays a limited edition - contra the Top Gun Double Chronograph 3799's limited production of 1500 piece/year.I prefer the ardoise dial because personally I find adds to the "celestial quality" consistent with the principle of perpetuation - PC after all.Then the weight: I find platinum to heavy on my smaller wrist, although this can simply be a matter of getting used to. Whatever the case, if $ is not an object, how does it make u feel ? I still think one's gut emotional connection to a timepiece is the ultimate determination, and this instinct can make interesting "final choices/switch in choices" as has continually been the case with me - with the final switch being the inevitable concession to what the heart ultimately wants.

Is it the one near Ocean center along Canton road? Also, I frequently visit HK, at least 3 times a year but still haven't found a good dimsum place for breakfast. Would you know any, thanks!
