Anyway, he actually produced a bill of lading from ETA to some convenience address in--where else?--Florida. He then showed some appalling Subaqua Homer that was using the 7750, and through the display back showed very similar perlage that might have been applied by Chris Burke after a couple of six-packs. I've owned a couple of watches with ETA applied perlage, and it was extremely well done, obviously by a master. After this, I figured that Eyal actually wrote a big-ass check to ETA (that didn't bounce), and sent the movements to Hong Kong, for some drone to apply the decoration. Naturally, I have no evidence of this, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was true.
