    Neucarl Sept Mai

    I just 'pulled the trigger' and placed a Pre-Order on the Neucarl Sept Mai http://neucarl.com which should hopefully be delivered in December.

    I could find only 1 review of it by a French reviewer called 'La Petite Trotteuse' - a 'Google' translated link is here - and it does have some great photo's of the watch http://https://translate.google.co.u...rl-sept-mai%2F

    They've also done a video review (which again is in French - but you can get English sub-titles up - you just need to be quick in reading 😜)



    I thought it was an original design - and the 'floating lugs' were quite clever. It was also nice to have a 'dress-watch' which has quite a bit of lume on the inner dial to hopefully enable you to tell the time.

    It uses a top spec Sellita SW215 which is hand-wound - and hence you can see quite a lot of the 'working' via the display back. However, I do not have any other watches that use this movement - so would be interested to hear of anyones experience with it.

    That looks really nice, and great value at that price.

    Sellita is ETA 2801 sibling, so no fuss there. Nice watch btw.

    Very sleek watch with a good movement.

    I have a Hamilton with an ETA 2801 and it's a very reliable watch.

    Yeah, I think he’s spent a lot of time in trying to get the details right - and he certainly comes across as a bit of a perfectionist (and I mean that in a positive way).

    This is a photo that they’ve put up on their Facebook page detailing the work that was undertaken in designing the hands - so I have to take my hat off to him; hence why I was happy to do a Preorder

    Just in case anyone was interested - I see Neucarl has now launched a Kickstarter Campaign today.

    The first 20 pieces are available for €415 - which is actually less than what I paid for my Pre-order 🧐 - oh well.

    There are now 4 - colour combinations - comprising either a White and Brushed Stainless Steel Dial - or a Black Dial; and then either a Stainless Steel or DLC case.

    The link to Kickstarter is here https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...XAvZugEWtMU90k

    Time for a thread revival.

    Unfortunately the KS wasn't successful - however, I decided to keep my order backing it as I had faith in the project.

    I now believe its going to proceed shortly, and here's some of the latest photo's which I've 'nicked' from their site.

    Neucarl Sept Mai

    If anyone is interested the Kickstarter went live at 1pm (I think) today.

    Quite a low funding requirement so I hope its successful - as its a really unique design and it seems he's put an awful to of effort into the detail.
