The handmade watch is truly a thing to behold. Handmade objects always retain the idiosyncrasies of the creator, which is one of the things that make them stand apart from a mass produced item. Take the dial for instance. Under a loupe you can see how the engravings of the markers are slightly askew, and little things like the markers are not always the same size. These little signs are evidence of a human creator, and much like hand-writing, imbues a personality and character to the watch that hearkens to the days before precision machines existed. Every curve cut into metal was directed by the human eye and fashioned with tools from the human hand. A laser engraved dial would be more accurate, but it would be like all the others and just not the way that Roger Smith does things.
At the heart of this watch is the Seagull ST 2130 movement. The Seagull ST2130 movement is based on the ETA 2824-2 movement. It is so similar as to be 'parts interchangeable' with the ETA movement. I think this is a wise choice on the part of Prometheus. Checking the internet confirms the dependability and accuracy of this movement.
Over a year ago I waxed poetic on the upcoming Sinn EZM 10 when I introduced the watch here. Later I was able to get my hands on the lovely Teutonic uber watch and I am smitten all over again. Sinn watches holds a special place in my heart because the brand exists in a total bubble. They totally do. They create very useful and durable mechanical watches for a world that probably doesn't need them as much as Sinn thinks they do. The brand focuses on value, function, and the needs of active professionals who need serious tools in their work. The majority of these professionals probably use inexpensive digital watches, but Sinn likes to ignore that - and bless 'em for it.
