I went looking for that Quenttin watch but the one I saw had the two shafts running across the case, with the hour and minute drums coaxial with one of them. Your design has the shafts running at right angles to that other watch, but the hour and minute drums in the same location. It makes no sense unless you've completely reengineered the movement to drive the time display through a right-angle linkage, or else the top shafts on your watch are non functional with the true movement lying beneath. Which is it? I know this is just a styling exercise, but it needs to be able to work.
And as I mentioned in your thread over on RLT, the time display is buried too deep within the guts of the watch. The displaying of the time should not be so incidental on a watch.
Those criticisms aside, I think the general form accurately captures the spirit of the Phantom.
The Corum Rolls-Royce, the 18k white or yellow gold case was modeled after the trademark Roman temple styled Rolls-Royce automobile radiator grill, complete with the flying lady hood ornament. The watch face itself was placed inside the grill visible though the vertical column bars. Powering the watch was a skeletonized mechanical movement. With Corum making a market comeback, I wouldn't be surprised if they struck up a new deal with Rolls-Royce for licensed watches as no one else has been seemingly been able to do so yet.
