I had never considered getting one until I saw it a a local dealer. All I can say is that it is exquisitely finished and enjoyable to wear.

I love the caseback crown, do you know if it's easy to wind?


 By: batholith : August 12th, 2019-21:44
Unlike nwk00, I actually find it harder to wind that a normal crown. For my large stubby fingers, I have to essentially use my nails in the detents on the crown. Not as easy but not bad enough to make it an impediment.

Can you try this?

 By: nwk00 : August 12th, 2019-22:40
Hold the watch steady so it doesn't move when you press and slide the crown. It should glide easily. And because the crown is huge, you have a lot of leverage and speed.

Will certainly do so.

Thank you for this. I tend to hold it in a similar fashion but attack the edge of the crown, the serrations.

It did indeed!

Thanks very much!

Yeah I love this watch

It's always taken a back seat to its big brother the Logical One. Shame because the movement is quite pretty.

I love the Logical One! Perhaps, someday...

Thanks very much! [nt]

It really is well finished

 By: batholith : August 13th, 2019-02:29
I guess it shouldn't have come as a surprise but it did surprise me.

Perfectly understandable.

Now I have that urge to keep an eye for his other work.

Such a good looking RG .

Beautiful watch.

 By: jlux : August 13th, 2019-00:46
The movement is spectacular.

Thank you. [nt]

A superb watch, looks like it wears very well on your wrist.

 By: Jay (Eire) : August 13th, 2019-04:07
As others have said we all seem to be a little guilty of letting the Logical One and the Micro Rotor dominate the RG discussion. This is also a superb watch, more classic in design but with just enough personality to make it stand out from the crowd.

Thanks you

 By: batholith : August 13th, 2019-04:52
Yes, I, too, have been dazzled with the other models. It was only once I handled this that I realized that not only was it special, it was a great regular wear watch.

Beautiful movement, I like it.

However, there is something about RG's dials that leave cold, I think is something about the hands, but I'm not sure, anyway, amazing watch. Vte

I can't disagree

 By: batholith : August 14th, 2019-12:30
but I don't think it's the hands. In my case, I'm more drawn to dials with textures and levels; levels this has, textures not in the density that wow's one. That said, the small seconds hand tied to its exposed wheel is fascinating.

Just stunning - love the brand!

Thank you

His work really is very refined. And fine gentleman.

Romain and his watches are amazing

 By: Watch_time_it_is : November 21st, 2019-13:03
I encourage you to check out Romain's watches in person at a show, owners, or dealer (Like Passion Fine Jewelers in CA). Here's an article I posted a few months ago. Since then I've been fortunate enough to add the Logical to the collection.  

Absolutely beautiful

 By: batholith : November 21st, 2019-14:53
watch. I'm quite familiar with Romain's work and with the man himself. A real gentleman and his work is stupendous. I certainly wasn't very familiar with it until a few months ago when I was fortunate enough to get the HMS. The Logical 1 is on my shortlis...  

Wonderful creation.
