Flatpup 6 "Vienna Art Déco" brass

Detail of a Flatpup 6 with brass housing. The dots are celluloid inlays. Unlike the engraved dotted pattern of the ones on the upper side, this one has a hole pattern which shows the copper coils below the brass.
Which one looks better? What do you think?
And yes, it's still flat: only 5mm
