Agreed. Would love to get my hands on a NOS Zenith El Primero hand wound.

Haha I'd like to hear thoughts on the movement design and finishing before I reveal the maker.

It's a small producer and the dial is a bespoke painting in cloisonne enamel. The movement and enamelling are all designed and done in-house.

The watch is 43mm but the movement still fills such a large case up nicely.

Honestly? And this is me putting my mega critic hat on! I am not normally this harsh! I think that the movement design is nice, but the movement finishing is not the best. I like the idea of the double balance wheels, and the 3/4 plate looks nice. I need a bit more info though! The geneva stripes are not as sharp as they could be, and the edges lack the best chamfering. Further, the chamfered edges are not polished.

But it depends on the price range! Are we comparing to independents like Dufour or Voutilainen?

This was me being INCREDIBLY picky smile.gif. And honestly, I do need some better pictures to really assess it!

Not a big fan of a watch with a display case which does not display much of the movement.

 

 

A rotor is bad enough, but something like this isn't really a whole lot to look at.

Thanks!  OoOoO - a guessing game is afoot!  I fear I do not have enough wide-ranging expertise in movements to be able to hazard a likely guess.

Great photo! It really shows off the various shades of color in the dial.

As of tomorrow, I am officially one month into my wait for the MUT Moon. Hopefully it won't take much longer. All paid up, and just waiting on delivery!

I never realized the depth of my impatience! crazy.gif

*Edited for clarity, sorry Warren! My initial post barely made sense smile.gif.
