Sorry to be unfair, but the quoted price is ridiculous.
On the WUS LE, the dial was totally new, from scratch. Font, spacing, thickness of printed parts, lume. Everything.
The hands were 100% custom made too.
Both the Black edged hands, as the second, optional, blued hands.
The engraving was custom too, including the caseback.
The crown was custom made for us.
The movement was modified, the Rotor with associated bridge removed, hacking function added(I think) and the barrell changed (said my watchmaker).
The Laco Forum is supported by WUS, and we members have given Laco a lot of business.
You yourself is a superb customer, I less so. I have bought 3 watches from Laco direct, and had my 55mm restored, so I am not a bad customer myself.
If the cost is not more realistic, it will go the same way as the A-dial LE and the A-11 project.
Which I would hate, as this is a truly fantastic opportunity to not only have a lot of fun, but also creating something unique.
I am in the process of having an Anonimo created with a special, one-off dial, and special hands, made to my spec
Yes, I expect to pay for it, but the end result will not cost me 2.5X a "standard" Anonimo.
And I have not bought an Anonimo previously, so I am not a even a good customer ...
Just my thought, excuse me if I ruffle some feather..
Off to a shower, friends are waiting at the Easter Sunday Brunch!
