Crazy Beautiful Dial

So what do you think? Is this dial complicated? Amazing? Confusing? Beautiful? Crazy? A work of art? Loud?
I say "yes" to all of the above.

The dial is the handy work of Roger Dubuis. The model is the Sympathie Biretrograde Perpetual Calendar 18k white gold, manual wind movement under glass. The dial consists of alternating dark/light tones of mother of pearl and features minutes, hours, sub-seconds at 9 o'clock, chronograph w/ sweeping seconds & 30 minute register at 3 o'clock, retrograde day & date, month & leap year at 6 o'clock, moonphase at 12 o'clock, and weeks (a rather uncommon feature) around the outer rim of the dial. Now that's a lot of hands.
