MaisonCeladon Yue Fei

Aug 06, 2019,06:36 AM

MaisonCeladon isn't a brand with many customer reviews available, 

I purchased the Yue Fei in Obsidian
The quality is amazing, the workmanship is second to none, and the small details maketh the experience very satisfying indeed, the packaging is very well sort out, with a leather box resembling the Yue Fei's octagonal crown (which takes one person a full day to CNC mill and polish then hand brush , honestly it's a small work of art in itself,
The warranty card is a metal engraved note again hand brushed, the second hand is a lesson to other brands in attention to detail, as it's also has a liked dot,
The weight of the case alone is 105g and again all polished by hand, and hand polished in the top case sides, 
The main hands are double faceted and lumed in a sexy blue, I've had more expensive watches before but this really is exquisitely made and finished you would think it's a Β£3000 watch, even people in Rolex and high horology FB groups have given it the nod of approval, 
If there's one thing I'd like to see changed on future models it's that the strap was different, the current one is hybrid a mixture of rubber on the bottom and hand stitched leather on the top, and although it's good quality, I'm a bit old school and would've preferred either Leather, rubber or Shark, although Stingray is available at an extra cost, and the second thing is, for what your getting overall, all the handmade brushed, fittings and workmanship the overall cost is amazing value but not expensive enough, and if the MaisonCeladon Yue Fei was Swiss it would be

Also credit where credit is due, to Benjamin Chee, on his products, his dedication to bring an exceptional product to the market, the workmanship in his Watches, and the overall experience of purchasing as a customer and becoming part of the MaisonCeladon Family, 
Also the Yue Fei is strictly limited to 50 in each colour, at $995 it's an absolute steal

No worries, but thank you for looking at my post

I’m pleased that you have found a watch that you enjoy...

Personally, several aspects of the watch design and manufacturer rule it out for me, but I hope that you keep enjoying it.

Cheers capt

Not for me

Lack of curved lugs, lack of imagination are non-starters for me.

I find dealing with this company very frustrating.

 By: TheMadDruid : August 6th, 2019-07:42
I ordered a silk-dialed watch in January of last year, I did finally get the watch. But I still haven’t gotten the strap, the box and the warranty card. It took over a year to get what I got. Email after email has promised the completion of this transacti... 

Sorry to hear that

 By: Simon_Ford : August 6th, 2019-07:55
Sorry to hear that, I've honestly had no problems at all, When I purchased the Yue Fei all owners are invited to a FB group chat page, have you tried that, as it's instantaneous

I didn't know about that.

 By: TheMadDruid : August 6th, 2019-10:40
I'll take a look.

Thank youπŸ˜€

Nice advertisement😐 [nt]

Hi ya, it would be a good advert, but I'm just a watch collector who likes the product I've brought, and there's not much out there review wise that is just a customers honest opinion that he thought other people might be interested in looking at, p.s her...  

You are not throwing anyone off your scent, but

Extra Credit for using the word "maketh"🀣

Hi "Simon_Ford" do you work or contract in any way for this company?

 By: Spangles - Dr. Tabby : August 6th, 2019-08:51
Your only other post is a very similar one for another Chinese brand Artelier Millesime, which is also owned by Benjamin Chee. In fact, are you Benjamin Chee?

Hi ya

 By: Simon_Ford : August 6th, 2019-09:16
Hi ya, I brought the Yue Fei and was waiting for it to be delivered then AtelierMillesime was announced and I instantly liked the Monarque dive watch, unfortunately I'm not Ben Chee, I'm not as rich but I am better looking πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ I am no way affiliated with B... 

Most posts online about Chee's products are shills.

 By: Spangles - Dr. Tabby : August 6th, 2019-09:48
If you are not a shill, then I hope you'll enjoy your time here and post about things that have nothing to do with Chee.


 By: Simon_Ford : August 6th, 2019-10:26
Hi I don't know what a shill is, but thank you I intend to enjoy itπŸ˜€

Is this true? [nt]

It's 14mm, comfy as hell

I agree

 By: Simon_Ford : August 7th, 2019-00:22
I agree, and it had a lumed dot in it as well

It is actually quite nicely wrought

 By: batholith : August 24th, 2019-13:55
I was surprised by that second hand as well as by the general finish. Certainly, it is not as delicately finished as the hands on a Kikuchi Nakagawa or even a Grand Seiko, but, for the price, very nice. It's a part of my lineup of watches for this week an...  

Very nice collection

 By: Simon_Ford : August 24th, 2019-14:15
That's a very nice collection, I agree the second hand really stands out, nice to meet a fellow owner, thank you for showing the collection, πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘πŸ‘

Thank you, Simon [nt]

I’m sorry but everything looks mambo jambo to me. Firstly, I do not understand the product. Why is the watch named Yue Fei? Is he being commemorated ? If he is, why commemorate with a watch? I do not see the link. Secondly (and this feels really weird), w...
