Serket’s classy new Telson
Serket, formerly Scorpion, is one of my favorite US-based boutique manufacturers and I’m quite impressed by their latest, the Telson. it’s a 48mm watch with ETA 6497 manual wind movement and exhibition back showing off Cotes D’ Geneve engraving with a scorpion.
The movement is a workhorse – I believe Glycine uses it in their Incursore line – and the design is quite striking, especially the blue, shown here. They’re water resistant to 10ATM and come on a strap or a bracelet.
Now for the bad news: The new models cost $1,250. This one is part of a 200 piece set so you’re getting something amazingly unique, which is great, and it comes with both the bracelet and the leather strap. The Reef Diver 2.0, their beautiful 47mm diver, still costs $999, though, if you’re so inclined.
