Well spotted and the watch is not in the 'Lange' style but none of this is of any importance. Let's just be happy that there are still manufacturers able to sculpt works of watch art like this. Who said the mechanical watch is nearly dead? Boy, if I win that lottery

They have stripped down the (hand wound) movement to its bare essentials. It's beyond a skeleton movement. There is no base plate in the usual meaning. Brilliant! Now that is a movement more than worthy of a display case back.

I'm afraid I would be tempted to wear this watch face down on my wrist, just to admire the movement.
