Not the two best watches, I grant you (forgive me), but I like them all the same. Forgive the crummy smartphone photos. In my study at home today (with a nice cuppa)...
No, JLC Duometre is not enamel and is dual barrel. Hmmm looks like an indy.
fairly certain its an indy.
wraith - nice wrist-wear.
Either I missed it or shortly after I posted the details are now included right below the watch.
Its sort of an indie...
No my sig does not refer to the watch in the photo.
i checked the link in your sig, i saw that was not it. what then is it? a custom piece by a non-indy?
wraith - my plesh!
Now you are just teasing .
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.
the movement looks beautiful. lets see that bespoke enamel now.
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!
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.
