Credor Eichi II

 By: samwan : February 17th, 2021-19:08
My first Credor.

The Eichi I was released in 2014 in platinum, but at 35 mm in diameter, I was not tempted as I found the watch too small. So when Credor released the 39mm Eichi II, I made the plunge. Similar to the first generation, the dial is made of porcelain (Eichi I was made with Noritake porcelain) but the porcelain used in Eichi II was unnamed. True to tradition, the watch prides itself with a minimalist design, after eliminating the power reserve indicator. Some of you may know that the studio in fact sent a team of watchmakers to learn brushing and finishing skills from Philippe Dufour. Just take a look at the markers - they are all hand-painted and the effect is truly remarkable,

Roughly 25 pieces are produced each year.

Magical. Wear it in the best of health.

It certainly deserves more wrist time than it already has....

Thanks for sharing a number of interesting and new (at least to me! ;-) details on this beautiful porcelain dial! As usual great pictures, it will be interesting to see this one in person one day! ;-)

My pleasure indeed

I found this one with my AD and I immediately texted my watch mentor who said: if you pass, I will take it. Needless to say, I deprived him of the pleasure :P

Absolutely gorgeous

Thank you. I will relay to my photography friend

That is an amazing time piece. Wear it well and please give us regular updates about your impressions. So far ( after all I have read ) it is a spectacular piece. Up there with Smith and Dufour

I also read Credor launched a blue porcelain dial recently but the white porcelain is a timepiece apart !


Yes I also saw pictures

A masterpiece

I kinda liked the power reserve in the past.

Sam, thanks for spoiling us by posting the amazing watches in your collection.

If you had to choose one watch from your collection, what would it be?!  smile


 By: samwan : February 18th, 2021-00:47
I can think of at least six or seven watches that are of grail calibre. Maybe the Roger Smith Series 2, though the Lange & Sohne 1815 Rattrapante PC Handwerkskunst, Observatoire, FP Journe Titanium Tourbillon, Patek 5070P, Patek 5370P, De Bethune DB25 are not too far behind.....

From your list

 By: sham1 : February 18th, 2021-02:32
I would be inclined to go for the Patek 5370P and the 1815 Lange special watch. I would have bought a 5370P if it was 39mm!  smile

To get the perfect finish, the alignment of the blue screws would be a must! Lovely watch though! Best, E.

Another amazing piece dear samwan ...

To my taste, I prefer your other GS rose gold spring drive, but the movement finish on this credos is top!

Always worth looking at this watch. Anyone know...

Where you could see one without ordering it?

I had to wait for almost one year after ordering it

However if you are lucky, you may find one at the AD smile

There is a Seiko AD in Manhattan, but..

An incredible And most elegant watch! Congratulations

Thank you for the kind words, almost flattering...I never knew how popular the brand is until I posted these pictures in Facebook, and I got 200 likes smile

Sorry to bump this but it really is THE dress watch to own. How is it holding up? Any additional thoughts?

There really isn’t much floating around on the Eichii online 

Gorgeous piece.
