I got this today, I have things shipped to my brothers home, so I don't have anything to measure it with for a proper review. These are just to show how awesome this watch is and to look at the beautiful micro rotor movement.

I just love the micro rotor. Just look at that. I read that there were jeweler's who made special see through casebacks back in the day. I need to find an old watch maker who can do it or may have some lying around because I just love this movement.

It is thin and very light, the case has a few light marks that I will get taken out. It may need a new crystal, this one just looks old and can be difficult to see the dial at certain angles. Maybe it just needs a good cleaning. I haven't had a chance to check the time yet, I just opened it a couple hours ago so I'd like to give it a day or two and I can check the reserve too.

I am very surprised at the price these go for. I think I am going to concentrate on a few more while the prices are so good.

Kahuna, they are on ebay and I don't think the majority of people know there is a micro rotor in them. This listing mentioned nothing about a micro rotor and didn't have an open case back picture. I had seen others like this with a micro rotor movement in them, so I got it and was right when I opened the case back.
Heck of a cheap way to own a micro rotor.

I have several, including a Baum et Mercier that features a 24-KT yellow gold case and an 18-KT gold 'linen' dial...it was Sept 2015's MMMMotM.

Yours is very spiffy, Allison, especially the grey linen dial feature. Nicely done... :face:
