Handsome watch, the movement looks great, and these ChronoVS guys don't commission many watches. Their first watch was limited to 33 pieces, and they are apparently only committed to making 40 of these in two rounds of 20. Look good, sound good, but don't know much about them.

That said, hate the name of this watch and hate the price - the better part of $11,000 with no price guarantee - and with little to go on regarding this Swiss independent apparently founded in 2006. A cursory search revealed promotional materials that say they were made in Iceland but are now apparently Swiss Made. Got some research to do.

It’s a good looking watch, but I don’t see how you bestow the “great value” tag on a ten thousand euro microbrand.
And I cannot fade buying a watch from someone with the moniker ampersand scaramanga underscore. I couldn’t read that, over and over, with a straight face.
Good looking watch though.

They're extremely exclusive, extremely transparent, hand made, and the hand-made and hand-finished movement with perfectly polished bevels has base plates made of silver. You'd pay that much to get a fucking Rolex OP these days. Good value in a sane world? Probably not. But here we are.
