    How to explore cheap labour.

    • WINKS

      Or exploit.

    • More like free labor for Mont Blanc since the rules state that submissions have all intellectual property rights assigned to Mont Blanc.

    And if you could make me a new face while you were at it, that would be great. Many would appreciate that.

  • SuperStrapper

    It’s a toad, but thanks just the same fren

  • After “Elegance” week, what are the other 3 categories?

  • Couple of days of work but I cranked one out. The aqua rectangles on the right side are hot spots to start/stop and reset the chronograph.

    Features: Tourbillon (spinning with oscillating balance wheel and expanding/collapsing hairspring), Chronograph with central minute hand, GMT, Big Date, Realistic Moon Phase, AM/PM indications for Time of Day and GMT.

    Smart functions: temperature, wind speed, compass, altimeter, step count, heart rate and battery level.

    Dim mode supports all functions except moon phase (and the tourbillon is replaced with a small seconds hand with markers). https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/19508a98fc13c7db0c7c1562e5df080ee629e9188378224e261d4de06ef13a52.png
