Romain Gauthier - Collection Prestige (long post)...

 
 By: Gaz : July 13th, 2008-08:33
After a nine month wait, my Romain Gauthier Collection Prestige finally arrived, hand delivered by Romain Gauthier himself (not sure why he couldn't just give me a discount and send it via FedEx). As many of you are familiar, Romain’s Collection Prestige ...  

Congrats !

Congrats for your new watch ! I really love the design of the caliber of the Prestige collection. And it's one of the very few high end handwind watches with a high frequency (28800). Here is a pic of Romain I took in Paris in 2007 : Thanks a lot for your...  

Stunning Gary...the finishing work and small design elements are beautiful..

Really a unique piece and something that you won't see so often, as you would say, a PP 5711 (which is a fine timepiece as well, but certainly not the same as your new acquisition). Can't wait to hold it in my hands... Just curious...what's the presentati... 

Thank you, Gaz, for the thoughtful review . . .

. . . and photos of your pride and joy. The movement is beautiful both architecturally and artistically, which is no mean feat . . . please let us know how it runs after the requisite break-in period. Congratulations on both the watch and for furthering t... 

Thanks John (nt)

Brilliant review and watch

Thanks Gaz, Wonderfully finished watch from a nice guy and a great review packed with information. I am not yet used to the off-centre chapter ring, but I do like the dial finish and the choice of metals and colours are wonderful. Your photos show all the... 

Jaw has dropped... am in awe...

I remember when I saw this watch the 1st time--the movement blew me away completely. At a 5711 price, this watch is an absurd bargain. I find the movement to be among the most beautiful and best finished I have ever seen--that is, in its own league, outsi... 

A close friend asked if this is one of those watches that I'd rather...

wear with the caseback up Indeed, the dial is not for everyone but there is a degree of understated simplicity about the dial that masks the complexity of the movement behind it. I guess I get a kick out of all the engineering details that went into the m... 

thanks again Gaz

Sensational Gaz....

...and well worth the wait. The 'in progress' shots coming in from RG must have been both comforting and tantalising at the same time. Congratulations - enjoy for a long time to come. Cheers, pplater.

Congrats, Gaz for your another new collection

That is a fine piece of art work. From the naked eye, I will rate it in the same category of Dufour's and Kari's work. To me, the watch itself does not move me due to the design of the dial but It looks so much better on your wrist. Considering the labour... 

Congrats! And thank you for an insightful post on Romain Gauthier

It was throughly an enjoyable read for me and very insightful. Gaz, congrats on a masterpiece! Best, Lionel

Thanks Lionel.

user-comments. This gentleman sure knows a lot, it will be fun to have an open-dialogue with him. And he is a kind of maverick who wants to push the envelope of developing and try new concepts. The dial may look simple but there is a subtlety. A difficult... 

thanks Salman.
