Retail is ,600, but this mint condition preowned copy is being offered at just ,300. That is a lot off the retail price, and probably the best deal you are gonna find. Even if you offer the seller a bit less, I am sure this beautiful Marcello C. Senatore with a silver-toned faced could be yours.
In the video, Romain Gauthier himself talks about his new brand - focusing on the design, the unique rear placed crown that can be wound while worn, the area where the watches are made, as well as inside the factory. The video is from TheTimeTv.com, who feature a lot of professionally done watch marketing pieces. They are a good view into the world behind the watch. I do have a comment for them though. Romain's first language obviously isn't English, and while his English is far better than my German or French, he is not completely able to express complex mechanical or design ideas in English. For that reason I think it would have been better to have Romain talk a bit in the video, but mostly have an English speaking narrator who can really convey these messages clearly, in the fashion that serious connoisseurs have come to expect. It is no disrespect to Mr. Gauthier at all, I simply think that the credibility of the story behind the watch is better expressed in a more professional sounding narration. Other than that, these videos offer at the least, a great glimpse into the watch making world.
This has to be one of the most cutesy luxury watches I have ever seen. And at a price that is going to be well over ,000 it might need some growing up to do. Underneath the heart shaped bridge lies the world's smallest production tourbillon in a watch. The small tourbillon escapement is just 11.6mm wide. Very small, indeed.
Back in the 1980's and through the mid 1990's, it was all about luxury quartz watches. Brands would proudly adorn the "Quartz" identifier on their watches. At the time, Quartz was seen as a successor to mechanical watches for its obvious advantages in terms of accuracy, cost, and simplicity. Well, most of us know what happened in the late 90's due to the efforts of a few key luxury brands, and the resurgence of the mechanical watch, buts lets focus on a time before that happened.
Having said that, I am shocked that watch brands seem to hide prices. Luxury watch catalogs are beautiful hardbound books with gorgeous prints and high production values. No prices. Instead, you get a little photocopied plain paper insert with the prices. As though it was some necessary after thought. A legal compliance addendum. Look, the antiquated concept of "if you need to know how much it costs you cannot afford it" concept is not really en vogue anymore. Yes, there are those buyers who like that idea that something is so expensive that only a select demographic can afford it. But if that is the case, then publishing the price is a good thing! This goes back to the whole walking on tip toes issues. Don't dance like a fool around the price, just be out with it. You don't need to swoon buyers with the "luxury buying experience" only to have them walk out when the "delicate" matter of "suggested investment price" comes to the table.

One of the major reasons that manually wound movements still exist, is that watch lovers enjoy viewing the movement operating. The necessary weighted rotor in the (more practical) automatic movement really gets in the way of a detailed full view of the movement in operation. This is one of the reasons watch makers in the past have utilized the 'mini rotor.' The Carl F. Bucherer CFB A1000 takes a different approach. The entire rotor is placed on the periphery of the movement, with the winding gear placed closer to the edge of the movement. The rotor takes the form of a ring instead of a half circle, and is heavily weighed on one end to facilitate oscillation (likely weighted with brass).

Underneath the case is the sapphire crystal covered exhibition case back. Most noticeable is the signature Tiffany & Co. black rotor with a cotes de Geneve polish decoration. The ETA automatic mechanical 2892-2 movement is further decorated with perlage polishing and blued screws. Don't worry if these things don't mean much to you. Trust that they seem to add value to a watch movement, and you should probably want them, just to know that they are there. The ETA 2892 is one of the best movements that ETA makes, and is in its highest grade in this watch being adequate (and passing) Chronometer certification. The exhibition case back window is obscured a bit with some lettering and a unique hand-written indicator of the movement serial number. Via these numbers, you can deduce that there are less than 100,000 Tiffany Mark T-57 mechanical movement watches out there.
Then you have something which takes an icon of a watch, and places a feminine twist on it, and adds to the sparkle factor of course. Perrelet is know to place a rotor on the inside of the watch dial. The rotor is part of the automatic movement which winds the watch. This way people can view the movement of the rotor which is usually hidden in the back of the watch. Cleverly, Perrelet has altered the rotor to appear like a diamond covered flower. The Diamond Flower watch is really beautiful in look and execution, and even has a rare sportiness associated with it. Probably because it is on a rubber strap, but that can always be changed. This is among the most attractive Perrelet watches available. The watch is 38mm, has an automatic mechanical movement (of course), and different colors and materials options are available.
