Great target, one I think could be my last watch/one watch. That's if I get in the position to buy without real life getting in the way

Neil. / richard...
Nah probably not just at the moment but my sentiments are based on my aim of getting as close as possible to a one watch situation ( or maybe 2) and the fact that I have really come to prefer the smaller more discreet watch that simply looks nicer on a smaller wrist.
Obviously you would both get first dibs and keen pricing should those days arrive!

Doubt that I will be getting an IWC anytime soon, so hopefully this will do instead;-

After an emotional week at Christmas packing my mother-in-law's flat in Sweden and starring for what seemed hours at the world timmer. It did seem to be adverts for it in every free news paper at the time.

We were over last week to finalize the sale and have everything moved across to the UK. During a trip into town we stopped into the AD For a look.
On paper it's fantastic and the looks don't disappoint the attention to detail is first rate with the logo on the first link of the bracelet and the crown logo been in line the right way up as well as the clasp is a nice touch . the grey dial would be a nice addition and at 36mm it's a size I can happily wear, also comes in 41mm.
The bonus been a Swedish make so should have all been good. Even the Wife liked it and said I should get it.
But it didn't do anything for me it just felt a bit light and a bit meh. At £500 I could have been tempted but at £2k I was expecting more. Is this wrong ? Is there no huge jump in quality and feel as the price goes up ?
So to the watch in question.

^^^ It's a nice looking watch - although not a brand I'm familiar with. The movements are swiss, but it's not clear who makes them?

The movement is a modified Sprod C125 with a 42 hr power reserve. Might have to revisit it next time we are over but have no regrets about not pulling the trigger at the moment.

The way the website reads it sounds like an in house movement or at least assembled in house

Think the website and marketing are from Bremont school of if you modify it enough and rebuild in house it counts.
Had a nice display back and was some nice work on the Rota.

I have not posted in this thread forever, but here is a nice vintage watch worth dreaming about - I think Guy will like this.

@blowfish - Good thinking Om, yes I quite like the watch; but not the price.

I feel, objectively, that I buy my watches to wear not just to collect (as this one is likely aimed at) and it would be serious 'grail' money for me so I'd want to be wearing it not just collecting.

If that makes sense; which I'm not sure if it does. :problem:

I understand, I would not buy it myself either - it does not look to be in great condition and so I couldn't wear it. I still appreciate it though, even though from a museum point of view.
