Ophion introduces Breguet-Inspired OPH 786

A small Spanish outfit that introduced its first wristwatch last year, Ophion has just announced its second model. The OPH 786 takes its cues from the pocket watches made by Abraham-Louis Breguet, inside and out. Admirably effort went into refining the details of the watch, while keeping it affordable.

The dial has an crosshatch engine-turning that is engraved (albeit with a CNC machine), instead of the stamped guilloche that is typical for watches of this price point. Both the chapter rings for the hour and minute markers are applied, with the Roman numerals as cut-outs, exposing the guilloche below.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

I like that blue and at 39mm they should do well. The price isn't bad, out of my comfort zone, but not a bad price.
