Size is a concern @ 46mm. So is the plethora of debris present on the dial. Did they hire Mazinger to photograph this thing?

Those old movements were hand decorated marvels all right and the nod to American made pocket watches is admirable, complete with the crown positioned appropriately at 12. But why use a modern, gold, barrel shaped, diamond cut crown completely contrary to the period and fuck up the whole inspiration. It's as if they had a box full of them laying around and said "fuck it, use them up". Use a proper onion shaped, vertically cut crown and maybe they'd have had something there.
