While I find the case and dial to be quite nice (though IMO probably much too large at approx. 42mm), I can't help but think that the overall design of the movement seems inelegant. My first and lasting impression is that M. Gauthier is simply trying too hard. The bridge layout seems unnatural and like others, I find the large winding crown on the back of the case to be a distraction.
None of this is to say that it's not a well-crafted piece. Surely if I tried my hand at this type of work, the criticism would not be that I was trying to hard, but that I couldn't possibly be trying at all
