My Favinov special arrived this morning :)
The inspiration for this came from watching the movie "Interstellar" as I really like the styling of the Hamilton "Murph" watch.
I'd purchased hands and a dial from Favinov previously and decided to commission him for a build.
The hour and minute hands are from IgorIV but I had Favinov lume them as well.
Essentially it's a 420 base model with a Favinov serviced 2409 manual wind and Soviet era caseback. The dial and hands have been re-lumed and it has a machined SS crown. The secondhand is a Komandirskie hand.
Honestly, I'm delighted with the final result. It's everything I wanted. The lume is excellent and the movement is buttery smooth to handwind.
I haven't yet decided on a strap/bracelet. I think the Meranom SS bracelet with polished centre links is a bit bling for my tastes so I'll run with the mesh in the meantime. I may install the older Meranom SS bracelet with all brushed links over the weekend.
In closing, I'd like to give a big shout out to Sergey (Favinov). He's wonderful to deal with and an utmost professional. I highly recommend him.
