Postby koimaster » December 7th 2016, 11:27am

Don Kylne & Co. is a watch brand created by a group of three dads whose friendship and love of watches led them to the realization of their vision of an affordable and tastefully designed timepiece. The latest watch by them is the limited edition Chaplin Special Edition watch, featuring one of their most loved designs- the cushion case.

I like the case very much, that exact design goes back almost 100 years. The movement is an okay one, I have a Lip watch with the Miyota 8245, and it does what it says on the tin.
Not too keen on the dial colour, but I could live with it.

That is the special edition version. The standard one has more traditional dials. The collections tab on their site, first entry.

Why do companies such as this seem to go to such great lengths to hide where they are located? If it wasn't for the dollar signs on the website you wouldn't have a clue. No mention of an address in any articles or on the website itself.

Makes me very suspicious.....

Just don't know, the first thing that leaps out at me is that the numbers are upside down and that really gets me.
Stopped looking after that.

The comments are interesting. Some mention the colors claimed as "tiffany green or blue"
