PILOTSocial_0000_Layer10_1024x1024.jpgSomeone on this forum recently mentioned Farer watches for their pilot range, so I checked out their site and was very tempted by the new 'Morgan' pilot automatic, unfortunately I had to stop myself, as I had only just spent £850 on a C65 Ombré :shock:
An interesting variation on the theme of a B-Uhr Type B, although I prefer Farer's new 'Californian' Pilot watch.

I really like the Brellum. Great looking watch. How do you rate the quality?
The quality is superb. Finish is first class, all Brellum watches are chronometers, and they look beautiful. The 2 box crystals add thickness but they deliver an amazing view of the decorated wobbler inside. For the quality, they are good value, if that can said for a watch costing about £3K (thanks to UK VAT being 20%).

Lumed rotor anyone?

Thanks, that looks good. Any idea if there are any ADs in the UK? I may be a bit put off by the prospect of international purchase, possible return and service.

Was that question for me, regarding the Brellum? There are no ADs. Brellum is 1 man, Sebastien Muller, and he sells direct from his website (Brellum Swiss Watchmaking). He is a first class guy & his watches are excellent, all chronometers, superbly finished. Import duties into the UK add 20% (that won’t change next year) but he does deduct Swiss VAT from international orders, though it’s only 7.something %.

Thanks, yes indeed the question was about the Brellum. Not having ADs is as I thought. Thanks for the extra info on the background and pricing
