The person buying a Chaykin likely has several watches from the Trinity and a Lange, and has more money to burn that most folks on F2.I like it. If it was $750 instead of $7500 I'd own one. I get why it has the ask that it does, just beyond my comfort level for a limited use whimsical piece.
Not exactly pocket change, but a major bargain in my book. The *hard* part, horologically, is the regulator and moon phase; he's doing that himself. The dial's complex as heck, with how many different finishing styles? Big tank moon phase disk in there as well.Nice novelty piece but the price is very steep.
Yeah, I was real interested until I saw that it was just a 2824. I mean, if it was an in house movement.............................
A lot of fun really. More power to them.
