These are so great. I can't really figure out precisely why, but 1 Dalton -- while certainly prominent and noticable from afar -- really only truly shines as one gets right up into its neighborhood. From far away, it's basically "Oh, so it's a... tall dark tower. Ok," but up-close it's this elegant, shapely, detailed sculpture.
I think the number 1 reason it looks so good up close is because the glass is ridiculously high quality. It's mesmerizing really. Also easier to tell there's something special about the shape from below. But mainly the quality, which isn't obvious from, say, Quincy as illustrated below.
