That looks nice. You can use Google Translate. It does pretty good
translation of the specifications. Like this:
-----
37.01.2 (black dial), 37.01.1 (silver dial)

work:
Manual winding, caliber Peseux (Eta) 7001, finely decorated with Geneva stripes and GENESIS engraving, blued screws

features:
Hours, minutes, small seconds at "6 clock" display using disc

housing:
Stainless steel, diameter 37 mm, height 7 mm, sapphire glass, caseback with sapphire crystal, crown with GENESIS Logo

Dial:
Galvanoschwarz, matt applied indexes
Matt silver, applied indexes

band:
handcrafted ostrich or crocodile leather

With that movement I would not want a large case. If you are
comfortable with 37mm. It think the Rondo looks attractive.

I have not seen any Genesis reviews here. There was a discussion
on the forum about Genesis 2-3 years ago. This is a quote from the
Genesis web site, which I will let my co-moderator translate.

Sie baut alle Uhren selbst komplett von Hand zusammen und justiert sie in fünf Lagen präzise ein. Christine Genesis fügt sie in von ihr gestaltete Gehäuse ein und versieht sie mit individuell entworfenen Zifferblättern. All das, was Christine Genesis im Rahmen eines kleinen Hauses leisten kann, macht sie in Handarbeit selbst.

Genesis is a small operation. I suggest calling or sending an email.

While Genesis does not make her own movements, in the photos
the watches have clean designs and appear to be well made.

Let us know what you find out.

Christine Genesis teaches a two day watchmaking course for €890.
In the class you disassemble and reassemble a hand wound watch
with Unitas movement and take the watch home. I would like to
do that.

Thanks,

Great looking watches! (do visit her site!) If there is a watch to tempt me away from my tangomat it would be
one of those (as a black dialed GO senator observer is probably beyond my budget), if not another Nomos ;)

I love all her designs but the rondo most of all. I do consider the tangente to be a better value for this form factor
and with a similar in-house movement but as I already have a tangomat I could see myself with a Rondo...
(must. resist. temptation.).

The classic blau is also great looking (and a great affordable alternative to a zurich blaugold !).

I would love to see a black dialed Lemania. That would probably prove too tempting in a year or so from now...
(not that the Rondo isn't already, but I already have a peseux 7001ish movement in the Nomos so a new movement
in my collection is all that more enticing. There is also the A10 of course...)

I wonder how they do on accuracy...
