Carl Suchy & Söhne Waltz No 1 Watch

Postby koimaster » March 14th 2017, 3:52pm

It’s been nearly 100 years since the end of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and the last time the world heard from Carl Suchy & Söhne, Austria’s foremost name in luxury watchmaking. Given the amount of time that’s passed, and the abject scarcity of surviving examples upon which to prove such a legacy even existed, this might as well be a fresh brand launch. That matters little, though, as the revival of the brand is a welcome one, especially when its debut release, the Carl Suchy & Söhne Waltz No. 1 watch manages to marry beautiful design, fine watchmaking signatures, and exclusivity with a surprising degree of affordability – so much so, that we had to confirm pricing twice just to be sure.

Nice, but the concept with the rotating disk as a seconds subdial doesn't sing to me.

I'm in love with this one for a lot of reasons, not the least of of which the provenance of the brand. The dial to crystal interface is astonishing, in my opinion, and the rotating seconds disc is interesting.

"Its most immediately apparent signature is the striking guilloché pattern on the dial, which is divided in half by vertical and horizontal striping, like two dancers rotating in a contra-body movement (or "CBM" in ballroom-speak), typical of ballroom classics like the Foxtrot, the Tango, and of course, the Waltz. "




Get the fuck out of here!!!




And the seconds disc is dumb,useless, and even further fucks up the dial.

Bohunks are great watchmakers. True fact.

I will proudly sport that watch the day you find me on a park bench drinking port wine out of a small bottle in a paper bag.

I know that makes no sense to read; I just know it's true.
