    Hi there,
    I'm just wandering if the following question is possible please ??

    Is it possible to add a not-seen-on-printout field for when the document should next be reviewed for updating? For example, email templates saved in a word document could have Next Review and Revision: 05.07.17. Once this revision had been done, the date could be replaced by a new one, one year in advance.

    Thank you in advance,

One is space, the movement of space is very limited, and the tourbillon and sesame chain is two large, very accounted for swiss replica watches the movement position, the two together may take up the whole movement more than 1/3 of the space, then leave Other components of the space will be very limited, and need to take into account the layout of the disk, Tourbillon placed at 6 o'clock position, and timing disk, calendar display area and the rolex replica tourbillon suffered very close, need to fully consider the tourbillon Space rationality, so the entire internal structure of the display, must be very accurate and careful.
