Cause they love a recycled movement! Well, at least, I know I do. Matt took a look at the latest ToM sale, and here’s what he had to say.
The most expensive watch, the Timekeeper Paladin 5 uses a Phenix hand wound vintage 1945 movements with a seconds sub dial at 9:00. It is being sold at $4,999, a 30% discount from retail, but I don’t know where this watch would actually be sold in a retail setting.
The final watch on sale looks to be a straight up modern watch, the Shadow, with an ETA 2824-2 (though this may be a vintage version of this movement), a PVD case, and a very nice looking carbon fiber face. The watch looks to be modern and readable, with a very sporty feel thanks to the red markings and second hand. I would swap out the included silicon strap for a carbon fiber one for a very high tech feel. The price for this is a very reasonable $899.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
