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.
If you want more information on the brand, you can look at the maker’s Facebook page; if you need a ToM membership, use this link to sign up (and tell ’em WWR sent ya!)
