I wind my watches daily and winding the Laine takes top spot - silky smooth - only my Patek 7200 can compare.

1st watch arrival of 2022: Laine V38 review

 
 By: NT931 : January 16th, 2022-11:48
Back in Sep 2021, Sham posted a review of his blue guilloche dial Laine V38. At that time, my salmon dial V38 was in production, and I was quite excited to see Sham's, while eagerly anticipating mine. Fast forward to 31 Dec 2021, and the Laine V38 arrived...  

Looks spectacular! Huge congrats!

And one which is seemingly worth more than the sum of its parts! Beautiful, micro rotor movement from an established producer, perfect size, guilloche dial with engraving and Breguet numbers, a shapely handset - all of the details add up, and this one, as... 

Thanks! I agree with you about the KV/UJ vibe especially for the dials, but without the typical lugs of a KV or UJ

As for a hallmark of his style, hmm... well the dials would be a feature. The dials can be done with 3 types of guilloche, much like Sham's lovely blue one, or can be hand-engraved, like in the pic below from Time & Tide I guess the other feature would be...  

gorgeous! thank you ! I didn't know about this brand

but the watch is spectacular. Pricing is also fair given the work ans the movement (which, if I am not mistaken is the same of the Hermes thin and the Tonda).

Huge congrats and many thanks for this very nice review

This brand has been on my radar

I love guilloche dials and those applied numerals. Having no numerals on the sub seconds is spot on (unlike 5196p or vc 1921 - with those would adopt this) -kevin

Congratulations on taking delivery of this beautiful watch!

You have taken some wonderful photos which is fully demonstrates the beauty of the dial and movement. Laine may outsource the dials and movement but he brings everything together in a sublime package. Enjoy your watch as I am mine!

Thanks Sham, I’m sure you’re loving yours as much as I am enjoying mine

One of the unexpected pleasures is in winding the watch. Yes, it’s automatic, but winding the Vaucher movement is delightfully smooth and provides much tactile enjoyment !

I concur!

I wind my watches daily and winding the Laine takes top spot - silky smooth - only my Patek 7200 can compare.

Congrats!

how is the accuracy of the watch

Very nice piece, never knew of that brand

only thing which irritates me is that the dial is so close in design to the 5196p - wonder why they did that

got it, thxs!
