    Alternatives of GO panoreserve, .. big date, hand wind?

    Do we have any suggestions of (cheaper) alternatives to GO panoreserve? I enjoy the look of the big date function and a hand wind movement.

    Preferably has <= 40mm diameter. Thanks for any suggestions, pictures welcome.

    Price range is set at less than 3k.

    I know about Minorva and G. Gerlach when it comes to big date watches for budget watches.
    Then there is Zeppelin and Junkers that also offer big date watches in a bit higher segment.
    The subdial watch I've seen in the Maurice Lacroix masterpiece series but those are closer to 6k.
    Zenith has the Pilot Big Date around 5k

    Perhaps:

    Try Davosa or Epos. But they are large as are based on UNITAS 6498. Or you can ask Habring to customize one for you - it might get over 3k though. If you accept autos, there are more big date options like Eterna or other models based on ETA 2892 with a DD module for the big date.

    What are you exactly looking for ? Something quite close to the dial design of a GO PanoReserve....

    You are right. The design of GO is very intriguingly unique. I am just looking for manual winding with big date. It can be big seconds, small seconds, or no seconds (preferably). Thanks for the nice pic!

    Wow this is a nice looking watch.

    I wonder if there is a place you can try it on in the States.

    I have a GO PanomaticReserve. I think the prices for these are about the same now as when I bought it new a decade ago, aprox $7k. These were under 40mm, but not hand wind. I think they have a more balanced dial but the new Panomatic has a bit more refined dial and luminous hands.

    I envy your panoreserve.. I think the old version and new version both looks nice. Once thing I found out is that in the used market, the price is pretty coherent for the new and old design though.. I think the hour/minute display on the old version is a bit more legible at the intersection of second hands.
