Yep, Magnus. And I fear it's a love at first sight affair...

I can't wait to see one of this in the flesh. I find this watch extraordinarily beautiful and the caliber looks very promising.

Cheers, Valentin

I can imagine this watch making a very sensible expression of one's wrist...

as it features lustrous lines without being ostentive, and a fine blend of traditional and modern design elements and finssions.

The backwards located crown will cause some stirr, and one will have to get used to it. As an anecdote, I was just reading a chapter in Dr. George Daniel's book "Watchmaking", wherein he describes keyless watches as

"... generally neat in appearance but difficult to wind. If they are easy to wind, they are often clumsy in appearance. When the winding button is large enough to grip easily it begins to dominate the case and influence the styling of the watch. It is for this reason that after about 1860, with the advent of the quantity-produced watch for people who seemed to care little for aesthetics and were apparently too feeble to use a key, the appearance of the watch degenerated into a tasteless and keyless, dull uniformity."
[Dr. George Daniels, Watchmaking, reprint 2002, p.272]

The man had clearly a strong opinion, but today a watch without a crown looks somewhat strange. This again makes me wonder about the materialistic appearance of Romain's watch on my wrist...

Hi Adrian,
thanks a lot for sharing your great pictures - they give a very nice impression of Romain's watches.
I'm really curious to see them in the flesh as soon as possible:-)

Best regards
