IMO:bullshitter:, looks like they've just prised it off a bulkhead and stuck a strap on it - really unrefined - not for me at all 

Well, you’re entitled to your opinion of course, and life would be boring if we all liked the same thing, but as Jonesinamillion has said - it’s clear they’ve put a lot of thought in it.

I'm sure they have, and I'm sure some / loads will love it....

...but thought doesn't always result in a good product:

Have to say that I love the look of this one - very chunky & something different. Have watched the videos & they go some way to showing what a micro brand has to go through, & the kind of outlay they need to spend, in order to just get a prototype.

Love the look of the thing but think it'll be too long lug to lug for my puny wrists. Would love to give it a go though & I'd put money down if I could but I missed the funding campaign so i think my ship has sailed (pun intended) ..........unless I'm being stupid & someone knows different :) 

Jonesinamillion - would love to hear what you think of it when yours lands :thumbs_up:

50mm isn't too bad I don't think - in any event its all to do with their shape etc - so in reality you might find it wears quite well.

If you're after one you could always drop them a line, I once did on another campaign by someone else - what had actually finished - and they were able to offer me one at the higher end of the campaign price.

If you don't ask you don't get :)

Think once the 100 are made they are going into production... small numbers through their site or a chosen few outlets (a few differences to the watch than the funding campaign watch).

 

Their atte tion to detail and quality has really impressed me, it seems every inch a £1k watch and the uniqueness is just brilliant!

This is finally getting closer and theres been some fantastic quality improvements... the guys at nardi have put some great content out and their passion is obvious; VERY excited to take delivery at some point in the not too distant future :biggrin:

Yes great news what movement do you want in i still would like the stellita movement rather than the STP OR Whatever and which bezel or you getting original or lume i don't know if to just go with original.

I decided to stick with the Sellita - and also keep the bezel as originally designed

There will be a similar version going on general sale I'm lead to believe. Movement issues have delayed the project but I gather the case / bezel have been produced so assembly & finishing shouldn't be too far away now.

Thanks for the reply, I like the look so interested but they haven’t posted anything for months

Just paid a visit to the Nardi website & have placed my order - now the savings are £400+ lighter (not really what I expected when I woke up this morning). I tried to get one with the metal bracelet but these were all gone so I ended up going for the basic deal (watch + 1 tan leather strap), lug width is 22mm so there are loads of strap's that'll fit. Anyway I'll let you know when it lands (or docks) - have to say that I'm very excited about this one & hoping that it arrives soon :clap::clap:
