We pick it up and guess who was on the phone ?
Its Mr Philippe Dufour !!
We sent him an email a few weeks ago to request for a visit for our new students and he was very busy. And today, he just gave us a call to tell us to fix an appointment with him. How kind of him even when he is terribly busy.
So, we received the WatchTour watch from our swiss friend down the road and we had it for a while. Our new students had just came in and we had alot to do. However, we didn't neglect the spirit of the Watchtour watch. It did take us some time to decide what we wanted to do with it and this is the result of Henrik's creativity. Superluminova on the automatic rotor.
This is what the rotor looks like in daylight. We used our Aciera F1 mill to mill out a recess in the rotor. Then we fill it in with Superluminova.
This is the original rotor which we swapped out.

Lastly, this is what it looks like in total darkness !
