Get Your Hands on This

From Limes -

With some of my colleagues doing a very interesting write up of another Limes model, I was reminded of one of my personal favorites.  Apologies in advance because I wrote about this little buzzer several years back, but it still speaks to me.

This is the Pharo Handwound . SI.LS 

A beautifully simple hand winding model with sub seconds at 6 o'clock and a power reserve indicator in the upper left.  

Nothing radical, just clear legibility on a nicely finished dial with a hand-winding movement.

 Thank you Limes for reminding us that restraint is a good thing, and that simple doesn't mean dumb, it means elegant.

And at a price of €1,220.00 (including VAT) you can have a very elegant watch without breaking the bank.
