The motion is the ultimate and maybe largest shock of the Antigua, and brings an equal sense of drama to the again of the watch because the entrance. Landeron in fact has a assorted and fascinating historical past, and if this watch will get these actions and that story within the arms and minds of recent lovers and collectors alike, I say it’s factor. Placing all that apart even, it’s a pleasant trying motion to see on show, and whereas I wouldn’t name it fantastically completed, there’s nonetheless lots to take pleasure in right here.
Meroud has teamed up with Molequin for the strap choices right here, which pair properly with the dial colours. The straps are smooth and put on properly, nonetheless they really feel a contact skinny for a case this dimension.

There’s loads of character on provide right here with just a few sudden curve balls thrown in for good measure. I strongly suspect that 100 examples of every dial won’t be sufficient to sate the curiosity on this watch, so right here’s hoping for a observe up that comes sooner fairly than later.
