Dreyfuss & Co. Series 1924 Calibre 39 Watch Review

Previous Watchlords discussion on this brand

by Ariel Adams "Dreyfuss & Co. is mostly known for more budget-themed timepieces, but over the years certain select models have seen the company stepping up their game a bit. Almost out of nowhere came this pretty nice, circa $1,200, vintage-pilot-style watch they call the Dreyfuss & Co. Series 1924 Calibre 39 reference ‎DGS00164/19 limited edition. Overall, I like this watch a lot given its pricepoint and design - but it isn't without its quirks. Also notable is language and terminology used on the brand's website that should probably be changed - especially if they are attempting to attract a more sophisticated watch buyer audience."

[b]I just wasted ten minutes reading that thread, what a total bag of shit
in memory of bigedsurf. Life's is too short give a rats ass what others think
about the watches I buy and wear.

IMO, lacks originality in its design. Looks like a Zenith Pilot Extra Special homage, and the applied frames of the numerals look very much like the ones found on the dial of the Biatec Corsair (with which it even shares the movement...to some extent, as the Biatec has the basic, automatic version of the Eterna ebauche).

I trust Dreyfuss/Rotary every bit as much as I trust Glycine/Invicta. Robert Dreyfuss used to be a frequent "special guest" on those glorified webcam WOW streaming shows with S. Fingers. I rest my case.

Dang it! I knew I'd heard that name before. Wasn't he a dessicated, Eurotrash guy with big eyeglasses?

Yep. There's a foto of him on the Rotary site to look up if you'd like, though there's no real reason to.
