What an incredible watch, loving it. Does NOT feel heavy nor bricklike. The brilliant strap design really makes this watch a winner.

That is a great timepiece. Did you get it in Philadelphia?

I'm in Toronto, a local merchant has just started to carry these. They feel good on the wrist, but it is a little odd where the lugs connect to the case.

Manometro has a yearly production of approx 600 watches and the destro is of course pretty thin on the ground.

But is shows the box. VERY nice watch, one of the most beautiful dials I have ever owned. Never had so much positive attention on a watch before.

What is the strap width?
How are the straps replaced, and are they custom to this watch?
I see the watch is available in brushed steel as well. Have you seen both?
What does the back look like?

This watch has gone to the top of my list. I've located one in the states, but hate making such a purchase without ever having it on the wrist. Thanks so much for bringing this beauty to the forum.

Strap is a puny 18mm width, but funnily enough fits the watch really well. Can't explain why, you would need to try it on.

I have the polished steel and I find the brushed version somewhat dull. This watch demands a little bling.

Will have to shoot some detailed pix including the CB, but haven't had the time to do so. The CB has 8 screws that holds it to the middlecase.

I have now worn this for three days and still amazed by the stunning look of the dial and whole layout as well as the overall feel and look. It´s a dress watch yes, not a sposrtswatch. And I have never had this many compliments on a watch before, merely because it´s not one of the obvious Rolex/Panerai/AP. People are truely attracted to the watch. Also, the production these days is less than 600 watches. Always very nice to have something different.
