I like what I'm seeing, thanks for sharing. I'd take the silver dial over this blue sunray but it's a beauty nonetheless.

I was super excited when i saw the thread title, but i dunno...i'm just not finding it very appealing. I felt like the original was a bit too understated, but this has gone to the opposite end.

I like that the new hour markers seem a bit more prominent than on the original though! Thanks for sharing!

I like the "Moon" part but I'm not sure about the dial, even in enamel. I think enameling is best done on a flat service that adds that rich depth to the dial. It may be lost here but it's probably a watch you have to see in person to tell.

Wow. Beautiful. I can see either this or the Reverso Moon as my next dress watch.

I certainly see your point, and this is a matter of aesthetic preference. That said, however, enamel is perhaps the most traditional way of finishing guilloché on not only watch dials but all sorts of high-end metal arts. My personal favorite example:

Which is likely its ballpark. Maybe more like 25-30, but still.

I doubt the pics do the dial justice tho. As far as enamel over guilloche...RGM's done it, UN's done it, even Seiko's done it. It can look gorgeous. Given the transparency, it should have nice depth.

Reminds me too much of the Seiko Presage Cocktail Time ... and haven't decided whether that's a good or bad thing.
It makes the Presage, at a fraction of the price, that much more appealing.

This JLC is absolutely beautiful!
