Really pretty with the domed crystal and does look like a Junghans.
Shipping was really slow for my first watch, probably around 3-4 weeks to Europe, but after receiving it I had no complaints at all. They even shipped me a complimentary strap after I had enquired for it. I agree the Sherpa connection is rather strange but I have no doubts that you will get a quality watch in the mail.What do you think?
Thanks ffritz. I did find a 41mm case at Otto Frei but that is the only one. I would like to stay on the smaller size but I did find a few 43mm cases with diamond crown which would make for a neat flieger. Still just researching and will probably pick up a certain homage with the st36. I watched a great video of disassembly/reassembly today. Doesn't look too difficult with the right tools.Cheers and thanks,RJ
What I think is that your post is a bit strange. You say you ordered a couple of days ago and yet bring up again about the different movement even though the picture error was rectified some time ago, about a month at least IIRC.I ordered one of these a few days ago.
Thought the design looked really nice and well-crafted, sort of like a Junghans (admittedly). The hour, minute and second markers really make it work for me. Never seen markers like these on a Junghans, so they do bring something new to the table.
The marketing and communication of this thing is a complete FAIL, as people have already pointed out. The connection to the Sherpa makes no sense whatsoever. There is no engaging or even believable story here. It just sounds completely fabricated, fake and totally absurd. I also believe most of their online reviews are faked, although it's just a feeling. The fact that they posted a picture of a different movement than is actually in the watch is really disingenuous and makes me worried as well. If you look at the media coverage they claim to have gotten, most of it is about the bearded model in their promo-shots and doesn't even mention their company. Really fake-y to call that "media coverage" .
There's just something really disingenuous about this company.
I'm really on the fence about maybe cancelling my order. Help? On the other hand, this whole thing might just be a complete Marketing & Communications FAIL, and nothing to do with the actual product, which might still be a fine product (as the pics and specs suggest).
What do you think?
I have a brand new stainless steel automatic that has just passed their 30 day return window. Although it is such a beautiful and lovely watch, I think I prefer a ceramic or titanium for my skin’s comfort. If you’d like to buy it for a reduced price, just let me know, thank you
