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
. And honestly, I do need some better pictures to really assess it!
