Siduna Prepares for Takeoff!

So in the interest of transparency, I think it's important to acknowledge that I am predisposed to liking the soon to be shipping Siduna chronographs.  I personally like one of the owners, I think he is a sane, rational, kind person in an industry filled with quick buck artists.  He cares about what he does and his work shows that.

Having said all of that, this chronograph is something special.

It comes standard with a pretty bitchin' rubber strap.  And for those who missed it the first go-round, the Siduna is a bi-compax chronograph, measuring 42 mm in diameter and of stainless steel.  The movement is Valjoux's 7750.

It is simple, elegant, and surprisingly affordable at the pre-order price of € 1,674 ex VAT for the "standard", and the flyback version is slightly more at  € 2,106 ex VAT.  But keep in mind, these are limited time prices, so if you are even leaning towards one of these, RUN, don't walk!  They will be gone quickly.
