and I love the watch and the movement very much.
I agree that UN is an extraordinary company under the leadership and "dreams" of Rolf Schnyder and I'm really glad that he continues to "dream" ......
I like this oval shaped watch, reminding me of another watch that I like - the AP Millenary case.
I love the new movement this is without the traditional swiss level escapement, as it has been replaced by 2 escape wheels with hollow teeth made in nickel phosphorous that are virtually weightless, allowing the natural force transmission. Techinically, it is wonderful and could be the base calibre for its future complications movements
However, the only thing that held me back is the pricing of the watch. Firstly, I've bought already too many this year and deep inside me, I have this feeling that this watch is very much over-priced - well at least from my initial estimation. One can choose to disagree with me and I am perfectly fine with that. Simply put, I can't afford it though I love it so much
Anyway, Congrats Bernard, a great watch to a great man!
