Aerowatch

A public information service thread really.

There used to be 2/3 of us on here that owned an Aerowatch, but I think I am the only one still here?

Aerowatch is a small Swiss, independent family run firm, that initially specialised in pocket watches, which they still make and very nice they look too.

So if anyone fancies a look, here's their website:

 http://www.aerowatch.com/homepage-en.html

And their PDF catalogue,that might take a few seconds to load:

http://www.aerowatch.com/fichiers/aerowatch_catalogue_2018-digital-35.pdf

They change their models quite regularly, so I guess they are made in small batches and as they have no outlets in the UK, you can buy direct and I got a 20% discount, which really covered the duty to be added on arrival in the UK.

Here's mine:

My only criticism was to do with the strap. The quality is excellent, a very nice leather strap, but it tapers from 22mm at the lugs, to 18mm at the buckle and it's a big watch - formally called Renaissance Big Mechanical in English - the case is 45mm - and it just felt very unbalanced. So I bought an Ostrich skin strap from Germany, with no taper and it really added to the comfort of wearing the watch. It's picked up a few scratches now and I plan on getting them sorted soon. This model is no longer made, but a similar model at 42mm is available. I always liked their 3/6/9 Chrono's as well, but they don't appear in the current line-up either!

Hopefully @dapper will be along shortly to show us pictures of his beautifully custom-engraved Aerowatch of which I am extremely envious.

Yes, me too, that is simply stunning, 

I have long wished I had got a cushion cased model, but they don't appear on their current line-up either. 

I'd happily buy another of their watches.

Hi Dapper, thanks for posting those. The engraving is superb and I really like the silver dialled model as well. Unlike the UK, they are actually represented in Thailand and I have seen them at watch fairs. I must check out where the AD is and pay a visit!

I'm not generally a fan of Roman numerals, but that is a beauty. Very reminiscent of the Sewills FERREIRA PRS-39.

Thanks! :thumbsup:

I got  mine in 2014, so predates the Sewills. And it wasn't a new model when I bought it.

I will only ever do 4mm tapering straps regardless the size and heft of the watch. Just doesn't look right to me any other way. But the pics of this thing look phenomenal!!!!!
