More Bronze Watch Porn - Lum Tec

Post by Peteo »

Looks like the boys over at Lum Tec are coming out with a bronze watch. I like the look of it, but I'm glad I got my Magrette for a hell of a lot cheaper.

I love the simplicity and cleanliness of this and their wider M range designs - very me.

That does look nice, does anyone have any experience of the Japan Sii NH35 automatic movement. :thumbup:
No more Quartz (except when I cannot resist).

I think Lum Tec are a bit of a novelty watch maker. I really don't mean that in a pejorative way at all and in fact I like many aspects of their watches to the extent that i very nearly bought one a while back. I like their apparently robust construction, fairly obviously the lume and the clean unadulterated dials (i'm talking about the non chronos). The case design is, however, too heavyily biased towards the cushion shape dominated by Panerai and I think the prices start pretty high, especially if bought direct from the US. I think there's an EU distributor somewhere so you might save a few quid over the cost of directly importing from the US.

My Kentex houses the same movement, here's some figures for your reference:

"Sii (Seiko) NH35 movement, a relatively new model, 24 Jewels automatic and hand-wind with hacking second and date, quick date adjust, beat rate at 216000/hr and accuracy stated at -20~+35 seconds/day with 41Hrs+ power reserve."

After bit of wiki, seems to be on par with Seiko's 6R15 (which is Prospex grade).

I presume this Lum Tec would be solid caseback, but here's a shot of the NH35 movement (honestly wish mine has a solid caseback too)....

Also I agree with Peteo that the Regattare Bronze is a better catch.

Not a pretty movement, but being a Seiko I am sure it will be very functional. :D

Looks better with the brown face. Nicer movement than the Magrette, but not $450 nicer! The only improvement over the Magrette is the movement and the crown shoulders. I actually like the gold hands and clean dial (no minute track or seconds hand) of the magrette better.
