Kemmner Military AS1950/51

"Formerly an engineer at a German case making company, Roland Kemmner now makes watches under his own name. Most are modelled on vintage watches and designed with varying degrees of creativity, but all are put together with components made in Asia, but done well, which is why they are all extremely affordable.

One of the more interesting products Mr Kemmner has come up with is the Military AS1950/51, a hand-wound, time-only watch inspired by the Heuer ref. 1550SG “Bund” chronograph. It successfully channels the look of the original, while being simple and surprisingly low cost, priced at just over US$500, proving that smart budgeting and an eye for detail can go a long way."

Picked up one of Kemmner's classic Marine Chronometers with a hand wound Unitas movement on Recon last year. Well built, nicely finished (ought to be for a former Fricker guy) - a solid watch all round.

Interestingly, I actually kind of like this.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

I like it.

Diggin' the caseback and the bezel, and jeez, it's actually not a gouge. Impressed for once.
