Two Fridays Later... 2 weeks on the wrist.. An owners review of the SevenFriday P2/2 Works... which uhm... works ;)
a cool way to try out a SevenFriday for yourself, just click the following and maybe fold some paper to give it its 13mm case height ;) P1/1 P2/1 P3/1
some great lifestyle shots of the watch here as well LINK
o Black with gold decoration and writing
o Highlights of golden color on applied index and hour hand
o Open balance wheel movement Miyota 82S7
o Customized with specific disk for 24H and small second functions
o Special minute hand designed to be part of the mechanical movement Ø Box (Case)
o Stainless steel bezel in black PVD with yellow gold PVD decoration
o Stainless Steel case in sandblasted yellow gold PVD finishing
o Animation ring also in stainless steel with special mat black roughed PVD finishing
but to be objective, I can point out some niggles from a 2 weeks ownership perspective so first up...
- the exposed balance bit does show that the movement is pretty raw but u won't be able to really tell unless u were using loupes or macro lenses/function on your camera... I warn u to avert your eyes to the pic below if u r sensitive to unfinished movements ;)
- mineral vs sapphire crystal...
& THE PRAISES
- still good bang for buck - Below S$2k for these timepieces that rock a lot better than many at that level and even above it. it's positioning is better than a lot of other sub-S$3k offerings(for eg fashion watches) and it's machine look lends it an independent flair/air to it. [when I say independent I don't mean companies that are not part of the major watch groups yuh... I mean the urwerks, mb&fs of this world]
planning a course for an under sea voyage...
and I must say that I find this to be the best style of strap for the watch. so may be ordering a proper custom gator strap with gold-ish stitch soon... or the opposite gold gator with black stitch... hmm
industrial work wear for this desk jockey ;)
