    Ladies and Gentlemen This is a simulated unboxing, as I visited the factory of my favourite watchmaker last week (there will be a separate thread) and picked up this second hand watch whilst I was there -- and clearly I had to have it on my wrist when I left (would have been impolite not to)! They put the watch in a bag for me . . . . . . and, inside that was a cardboard box . . . . . and, inside that was a wooden box . . . . . . . (though it feels more like it's made of osmium ) . . . . . . and, inside that was a watch . . . . . and a book . . . So, a look at the watch itself . . . . . . which, of course, I immediately set to the normal photogenic "smile" . . . As you may be able to tell, I'm very smitten with the movements from MG. The company comprises only fifty one people, (all of whom are happy to talk to you, and all of whom are passionate about quality) and makes around four hundred pieces per year. CNC is used pretty much only for blanks -- after that, everything is done by (rather expert) hand. I was able to talk to the gentleman in charge of making the balances (and who probably made mine), who took me through the "initial balance / first stage finishing / rebalance / final finishing / final balance" process that each component goes through, and which takes hours. The same with the three stage snailing (one hour of hand work), stripes and engraving on the 3/4 plate, and of course the manufacture of the hand set (by hand, of course), some of which are less than 0.1mm wide. I know I'm a sad case, as I now have seven watches from the village of Glashütte (three GO, three MG, and one Nomos) -- but I console myself that some people have seven Rolexes ('nuff said).

    Mid 70s Oris caliber 702 17 jewels manual wind. Its still got the aged sticky on the back. Runs lovely very good power reserve. Sent from my SM-J320FN using Tapatalk Nice. Ive got another uno coming manual wind. On an integrated bracelet very much like a longines or even AP. Very modern looking for what must be a 70s manual wind. I expect its an fhf again. It will be interesting to find out when it gets here. Thanks nigel. :-) Sent from my SM-J320FN using Tapatalk

    Good morning, Zeno with a 17J Unitas hand wound. I would wear it more if it had a quick-set date. Although I can't actually see it except on a big photo . Plus I have been looking forward to the 19th for some time, so I'm unlikely to forget!

    I've only had this a few weeks. The sometimes debated notion of a new movement 'settling in' appears ro be true for this watch, which started out at around +9 per day and is now around +6 on average. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Metal square, silver with rubber strap and negative display. I actually obtained this as a spontaneous purchase as in Thailand many items are difficult to obtain. My initial interest was from Instagram but I never thought they were special and just a fad. But after handling this it felt like a quality piece. The finishing is spot on and the display, although similar to the original, took a lot of work as they crammed in so much tech. Even the backlight fades in and out. However having said that, I do prefer the metal strap versions as they have more weight to them:

    Morning, Today, this recent arrival, a French-made Jean Stéphane, ….er… nope, not a clue, and no likely makers recorded. Probably from the late ‘70s and maybe a jeweller’s or private label, but whoever he was has left no horological ripples that I can trace. All I can tell you is that it’s 36mm, runs on a 17j FE 4611A auto with Antichoc 102 and is my first example of this particular movement. Regards.
