I like the looks okay but it doesn’t make sense. A Sellita movement at $3500? Personally, I’d prefer a HAQ and a lower price. You say Accutron and I think tuning fork. This gets the nostalgia all wrong, like when Burma Shave recently released a shave puck and brush.
I also think Bulova, and that brand doesn’t connote a $3500 price. Why wouldn’t I buy a Tudor instead? Or an Omega? I guess they only have to sell 300.

Spot on. This thing would be perfect with a Precisionist. Just an excuse to charge more for the premiumy prestigeness of a mechanical movement.
