Hi All, I Have just landed my self an AATOS Tiago tourbillon with a PTS 3310 movement.
I have seen very little info on these and even fewer real pics so I thought I would rectify the situation and do a mini review and post a few bad pics for peoples reference.
On the whole the watch is well made but to be honest the case construction is nothing special and seems on par with the ingersolls and lower end seagulls I have but not as nice as a seiko or a citizen of a lower price point obviously most of the cost of the watch is in the movement and speaking of the movement it is the star of the show I prefer the central tourbillion arrangement of the PTS when compared to the offset arangement of the balance wheel some other tourbillion movements have I just think it looks cleaner.
The strap is good quality and is a very nice red brown colour the strap is a lot nicer than what would come on your typical parnis.
The movement its self is nice and clean and seems to run about 12 seconds slow a day so far but I have only owned the watch for a day.
the dial is nice with a subtle 3D sun ray pattern. The dial printing is fine when viewed with the naked eye but is sloppy when blown up a bit all the applied silver numerals are well attached and perfectly aligned as far as I can see. the Crown is well made with a nice blue sapphire on the end hand winding the watch is solid with a smooth feeling to it not gritty or jumpy at all unlike some movements I have come across.
One thing that goes against this model is its lack of a sapphire crystal but it was not a deal breaker for me but people may want to bear it in mind.
On the whole I am fairly pleased with the watch and it is a bit of a dream come true for me to accentually own a tourbillion as I thought I would never be able to afford one thank you AATOS and PTS Resources. Now I just hope one day a chinese manufacturer sees fit to produce an affordable minute repeater
