The Kiu Tai Yu Tribute

From Pellikaan Timing -

A seeming lifetime ago, I met Hubert Pellikaan wandering through the halls of the Palace at BaselWorld.  He had started working on his brand, Pellikaan Timing and I had the opportunity to check out his initial effort.

Needless to say, time has moved forward, and I thought I'd check out where things were now, and discovered the Kiu Tai Yu Tribute (above).  In fairness, this might be one you've seen already, but I think it's pretty cool, so in case you missed it -

The case is stainless steel, the movement is ETA's 2892A2, but the real star of the show is the dial.  It is DOPE!

This is an "off the menu" item, so should you be so inclined, you will need to contact Mr. Pellikaan to do so.  The price as I understand it is 1,690 Euro.

Here are the pertinents -

Automatic winding

- Size: 40mm diameter, height 9,5 mm, strap 22 mm
- Movement: ETA 2892A2 soignee

- Waterdicht 5atm / 50 meter
- Breguet hands
- Creme and phosphorising red dial with Mandarin numerals
- Sapphire crystals on front and back
