Hands-On: CT Scuderia Master Time Automatic

Postby koimaster » October 24th 2017, 10:00am

The so-called “bullhead” chronograph — with crown and pushers at the top of the watch rather than on the side — is a type that very few watches even attempt to pull off today, with some notable exceptions — Omega makes one as an extension of its main Speedmaster line — but Contatempo (CT) Scuderia, a brand of auto-racing inspired chronographs founded by third-generation Italian watchmaker and motorbike racing enthusiast Enrico Margaritelli, has embraced the style, applying it across its nearly its entire range, which is composed of models with both mechanical and quartz movements.

Looking at the CT Scuderia website, this might actually be one of the less ghey watches by a maker of utterly ghey watches.

It wouldn't be that bad, and not quite ghey, if not for the case. That dial is great. But the case? Looks like a pocket watch conversion...well, not a conversion, but like a PW in a "wrist adapter."

But it's not a PW in a "wrist adapter." So just why the fuck did they give it the long neck, and the ridiculous bow?

And then, there's this:
"The movement is a Swiss-made automatic, made for CT Scuderia by the Swiss company Concepto with relatively few adornments"

Oh, what a fucking genius. Can't he tell a bloody 7750 clone (if a clone, Concepto could well just decorate stock Sellita or ETA ebauches and sell them further) when he sees one? The single most common chronograph ebauche ever made, dirt-fucking-common, more common than the Landeron 48 and all of its derivatives? What a pillock. And that level of knowledge is on a website of a magazine that's charging people money for its full edition. Where the fuck do they get their journalists? From some countryside arsewipe of a paper, like, The Pillock Hillock Daily Observer?

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
