    Dunhill

    Do any of the membership here know anything about A Dunhill watches? I see the Dunhill Dunhillion advertised a lot and the prices appear very very good. I have seen one of the watches and the quality appears spectacular especially the bracelet.
    Where are they made and what movement do they use?
    Do they enjoy a decent reputation amoung you afficionados?

    Thank you for taking the time to reply.

    Dunhill is Swiss and uses ETA, Jaquet and Dubois-Depraz. A top-knotch
    upper end watch that usually doesn't appeal to geeks ont this forum.

    Hi,
    I owned a Dunhill Dunhillion Automatic 'Facet' watch and loved it. As indicated by Watchbreath the movement is Swiss made, excellent quality and reliable. I had a stainless steel bracelet which was incredibly well engineered and felt heavy to wear, adding to the confidence of the quality of the watch.

    I stupidly sold mine on eBay and have been looking for a replacement for at least a year. Mine was a chronometer, not a chronograph which made it even more appealing. They also look great on a good quality after-market leather strap too.

    I highly recommend the Dunhillion, it's a beautiful, extremely well-crafted watch.

    Paul

    Well, it is a British brand, all 3 model use JLC movements.
    But you are correct that they are made in Switzerland.

    Very good value for what you get, specially the distinct Facet model.

    Edit: They also seem to have a bunch of other cheaper models, powered by Quartz movements, ETA etc
    Was it those you meant, Watchbreath?
