Well, it was just Christmas in California.

I'm sure they have a niche of a customer base, but there won't be wide demand for their watches. That said, if they have their quality control in good order, I wouldn't mind having one at $1200 or so. If nothing else, they are a unique looking style and that alone is worth something. They have ETA inside, so I know they'll work fine and that there won't be trouble getting them serviced as any watch repair shop can service a basic ETA movement.

Congrats on your betrothal. I wish you and the misses to be all the best.

I'd be interested to see your thoughts on the watch once you receive it. I have to say, the model you pictured is far more refined in appearance than their prior pieces. I like how it combines elements of Tiffany and Patek design themes -- blocky Roman numerals and hobnail bezel, respectively -- and it's probably the only watch I've seen that takes advantage of the complimentary pattern and scale of hobnail and mesh, combining them into a single piece.

All the best.
