I'm new here, but have been a watch enthusiast for a long time. Recently the availability and retro design of the cushion watches has me looking to purchase one.
Started looking and ended up zeroing in on the Irreantum Magellan 500m. Price and availability. They seem nice, nothing really special, just that the price point seems to be what keeps me hooked. The secondary market seems to be the place to score big if you hit just right.
Some things about this watch kind of has me wondering. For one, from most pictures I see, the watch dial seems to not be 100% visible when viewed from your wrist, I'm guessing it just looks that way maybe, because the dots are so huge. I also notice. no chapter ring with marks for minutes, seems like the dial is taken up by the hour markers all the way to the edge of the dial. I'm just trying to understand before I buy. My other watches I can pretty much see the entire dial with a very slight twist just wondering.
Ive also heard,watches like this are considered "boutique" I guess that means here today possibly gone tomorrow if you ever need a part or service.
Anyway they look to have been out for about 2 years should be enough watches in the wild to get an idea if they are durable users or not, I have not read any negatives.
