Some things just speak to you...

This is not a brand new release - it has been around for a little while now.  But it is one of those watches that I find myself continually coming back to.

I was updating their brand listings recently and fell in love all over again!

This is the Madison Eight-Days with Eterna Spherodrive.  It made its debut last year, and having seen it in person, and speaking with the folks at Eterna about it, I really feel how special it is.  

I LOVE the fact that Eterna has gone against the tide with the case design, I love the power reserve and date display, I love the movement.  But it's when you have the whole thing, together in your hand... that's real when the romance becomes real.
