I wouldn’t call them complaints but rather comments

of people that are simply followers of trends/ other people’s opinions or maybe they just aren’t into the watch. Honestly if you love the watch there’s nothing else to say 😆

The common complaint on Finissimo are (in random order)

 By: piccolochimico (aka dsgalaxy1) : April 8th, 2023-09:37
There are too many models, there are too many limited editions, you don't have to buy the whole bundle to get one, you don't need to be approved by the headquarters, you must not prove your blood lineage, it will neither be the next RO nor Nautilus. Finis... 

There are a lot of people looking for nice watches, but apparently the Finissimo is not worthy their attentions.

The Alpine eagle XPS is a nice watch, thicker than any Finissimo, yet many 3ds depict it as it were really innovative and groundbreaking. That's for saying that an extremly comfortable watch is currently available, with an amazing movement with a microrot... 

I‘m actually quite happy, that there‘s not much hype around the OF. Quite a few brands got corrupted in their customer service by hype. That‘s what drove me away from them.

Also, my Bulgari boutique told me, that demand for OF has picked up significantly. Except for some less popular variants, they rarely have an OF in their shopping window nowadays, because most OF get sold shortly after they arrived. I think Bulgari is qui...

Do you think there are too many LE?

 By: piccolochimico (aka dsgalaxy1) : April 8th, 2023-10:16
At first I'd say so, but let's set a figure for what a LE really is (or should be). There are LE's of 10/20 watches, made for boutiques, which nobody will likely ever see. Do those LE's decrease the value of the watch? Not at all, the overall quality is s... 

Are There Too Many LEs?..Perhaps

 By: David Allen : April 8th, 2023-13:32
There are many limited editions of the Finissimo. There have been at least 42 LE releases out of 98 total unique reference numbers for the Finissimo lineup (I keep a spreadsheet of all data I can collect on the Finissimo because I'm a big fan). On the sur... 

That's a great work

 By: piccolochimico (aka dsgalaxy1) : April 8th, 2023-14:27
Japan is likely the market with the highest number of dedicated LEs, Tadao Ando 1st gen is still my favourite, as well as that one of Hiroshi Senju. Recently they have introduced the 50 pieces tuscan copper dial for the US market. One day you might be wil... 

 By: David Allen : April 8th, 2023-23:57
You'd be right about Japan having the most LEs. They have released 17 unique reference numbers relating to Japanese watches including six from Hiroshi Senju; three from Kamine: Ryuichi Sakamoto; three from Tadao Ando; two for Japanese boutiques; two from ... 

Shhhhhh my friend

I’m wearing mine now - the only watch I took with me (apart from an Apple Watch for flights) on my current two-and-a-half-week trip to Europe. Left everything else at home - including the Alpine Eagle, it’s just too heavy compared to the titanium of the O... 

Honestly, the popularity of the OF is pretty remarkable, especially for a watch not produced by the big names in this field -- even if it doesn't rise to the level of creating long waiting lists, it's still a highly successful line among collectors! ;-)

 By: FabR : April 8th, 2023-13:58
It's understandable (and fully deserved) that Bulgari continues to capitalize on it, be it with more regular iterations or with LEs (but yes, one might legitimately argue these are too many...and I am generally not a fan of abusing this concept ;-) Will t... 

I like this one!!!

One of a few watches I’d be happy to buy today.

 By: Jay (Eire) : April 8th, 2023-14:23
I love this new skeleton, as for me the prior ceramic didn’t float my boat. An OF needs to be titanium, that’s the look that sold me initially. And for those that own the OF, 60g on the wrist with a bracelet is just perfection. Would like to see this in t...
