"10 Jahre Defakto Uhren Manufaktur"

Yes, 10 years of Defakto goodness!

Had an interesting conversation about watches, writing about them and what attracts us to them.  I have been a fan of Defakto since Jump Street.  Another generation of the Ickler family continuing in the family business, but in his own way, with his own vision.  And he's also a pretty nice guy!

This is the 10th anniversary edition of the Eins.  The Eins was one of the very first watches that I reviewed when I began this horological writing adventure back in 2010, so it seems sort of fitting to be writing about it again now.  

This piece is available in stainless (above), and three other versions with different PVD finishes -

Priced quite reasonably, the entry point is the all stainless which weighs in at:

720,00 EUR (incl. VAT)
605,04 EUR (excl. VAT)
