I need a new phone after looking at those pics. Just superb.

It's an interesting brand that I want to keep an eye on. This particular model I think I like the IDEA of more than the execution.  ALS did it so well that this looks a little dull in comparison.  Little hard to read in darker settings as well.  That said, some excellent attention to detail and an interesting piece.

I'd never really heard of them before, and I tend not to like the skeletonized look in general.  Then I read a bit more and caught a few more pics of it and it's started to creep into my brain. I realize there's a lot of competition at the pricepoint (~$14000 USD) , but for a small independent watch brand w/ an in-house movement and that finishing level it seems like not an unreasonable price.  

 

Thoughts?

Has anyone here dealt with Alex Pig Timepieces, based in HK?

 

He sells on Chrono24, as well as from his own website, and he has a lot of very nice-looking watches, including a large collection of second-hand Rolex watches for sale.

 

Some of the prices appear to be excellent, particularly for some of the Datejust models (considerably below below what I would have thought), whereas prices for some other pieces (such as Pepsi-bezel GMT IIs) appear to be too high (at least as far as my limited knowledge extends).

Any thoughts/opinions/observations/experiences are welcome.

 

I stumbled upon him while idly searching for vintage Datejust models and thought that some of the prices looked too good to be true.

Thank you sir, I like it a lot, a little bit more sporty than my 3777 :)

Stiches - awesome macros man. Never noticed there was so much intricacy with the patisserie dial, but I shouldn't be surprised given it's an AP. Still awesome to see.

Sweden - nice AT. I've been eyeing the split minute version for some time..

Indeed! I know it's a tourist spot, but I'm a sucker for a good view. And I was suddenly in the mood for Kobe dogs.

 

(Full disclosure: Less than 20% of meat marked Kobe is in fact Kobe beef. Were it genuine, I'm sure few would have the gall to ground it up and stuff it in a casing).

Have not personally dealt with him but do note that most of the watches he sells (especially the vintage models) are "no box no papers", which perhaps is one reason why they may be cheaper. Not that there is any question of authenticity, but I know some here wouldn't touch a boxless and paperless watch.

So that's a martini at 1610 - punchy, but I like your style.

 

On enlargement, that dog in the middle looks to be of questionable origin, if you get my drift. Reminds me of Bachelor Party.
