Claude Bernard Aquarider Chronograph Review

Posted on 11 October 2013 by Patrick Kansa

 

r

Today, we’ll be taking a look at a watch that literally showed up out of the blue (well, for me it did – John sent it over with some other things).

Uhrenwerk24-Retrograde (5)

Today’s post was originally intended to be a hands on review of a watch from the newer brand Antonius Graf Strachwitz (for brevity, referred to as AGS throughout).

Most of those have fallen into the affordable end of the market, being driven by either quartz movements or Chinese-sourced automatics. Recently, though, a project (page) launched from A.
