The Duobox LE.8 Chronometer

I am, to be honest, a huge fan of Brellum and pretty much everything that Sebastien Muller has done with his brand.

This is the latest iteration of Brellum's (now) signature take on the chronograph. Unlike many brands out there both mighty and wee, you know a Brellum when you see one even without the text or logo. When I think of how long Brellum has actually been in business, it amazes me how clearly Mr. Muller has defined his brand and its flagship.

This latest offering is a triple calendar moon phase, and it is perfect. The case is of stainless steel, and it measures 41.80mm in diameter. The movement is based on Valjoux's 7751. 

This Swiss piece of awesomeness is limited to 15 pieces TOTAL, so if this is in your wheelhouse, move sharpish!

The price is a VERY REASONABLE CHF 3'607.95, with delivery anticipated in early July.
