Response to Look very closely...
This is what's terrible with such a watch, and probably the reason I'll never buy it (appart from the fact that I cannot afford it) :
If you have a watch that you consider as perfection, you'll spend more time trying to search for the IMperfection than simply enjoying it.
Take a look on Steve's website to the picture where you see the front dial from 3/4 face.
Now, look at the applied markers at 9 and 3.
The marker at 3 is "perfectly" flat pressed against the dial.
Now, the marker at 9 is very slightly above. Probably a few tenth milimeters, but still, it's not like the one at 3.
Do you see it ?
This is why I prefer to buy "imperfect" watches. So as to enjoy them. If there's a small problem, well, who cares ? It's only a watch, after all.
