    Accurist Origin Chronograph - Anyone had one?

    I came across this watch last week and really like the look of it. Im in the market for something new but my budget is very much Accurist rather than the Zenith it seems to be inspired by.

    The few reviews I've found seem to be favourable especially given the price. Has anyone owned one? Interested to hear of any first hand experience, general comments also welcome.

    There are a few colourways available the 3 below the ones I'm considering. All can come with bracelets or other colour straps.

    I'm rather a fan of the silver, tan and black version here (though it's a shame it's not on the bracelet)

    No direct experience with the brand though.

    All of the colour options can be bought with an additional strap, including the bracelet (adds 40).
    The tan looks good too. TBH the only one I wasn't keen on was the gold case.

    I have to agree. The black dialed version is very nice.

    Sapphire crystal as well, quite a good price.

    Accurist make some great value pieces. I had a retro something or other some time back. Cracking finish, and looked incredible, but I didn't wear it. Not sure why.

    But those look lovely, and a bargain.

    I managed to try one on today and for the price I was impressed. A few edges were a little sharper than I would have liked but overall very tempting.
    Unfortunately they only had the full black case/bracelet model and the blue dial on bracelet. Id like to see the other options in person too.

    I decided to order a few models to check out along with one of the Everyday models. The gunmetal case on the light canvas was my favourite visually but it didn't feel quite right on wrist for me so both are going back. Looking at these though i think they offer a lot compared to something like the Moonswatch at a good chunk less money.
    The wife wanted the white face Everyday model. So that's staying but will find a different strap as they were average at best. With discount code it was 116 delivered with personalised engraved caseback, seems a bargain if she's happy lol.

    Also really impressed with the packaging. The travel case box is a very nice touch considering the price point and comparing with the packaging you get with other brands.

    The travel case could hold 2 watches
