    New Watch Company Culet Automatiq - GHOST

    I wasn't sure where to post this, so I brought it to the Public Forum. I came across this new company this morning named Culet Automatiq. Their first watch which seems to be in production is called the 'Ghost.' It really reminds of the Hublot Big Bang, but I wanted to hear what everyone else thought. IT has 316 L Surgery grade stainless steel case, a skeleton-type dial, and has an automatic movement, although, I don't see any information on the specific movement. Based on some research it looks like it will retail at $1,990. Here is the website: Culet Automatiq and a picture is below. What do you guys think?

    Can't find any information on their website or instagram, but we I will see what I can dig up. It looks like they were at Baselworld, so maybe someone has more information.

    looks too big for the wrist model. not the most flattering choice of pics for marketing. No mention of dial size or movement. Also, not sure if "it also features a new strap style unique to the Ghost, where changing from strap to strap is made easy with the Culét Automatiq watch tool provided." means that your strap options are limited to what they produce.

    Honestly? For a skeleton I don't think it's all that bad. There are some elements I like, and some that I really don't. Overall, it doesn't really tickle my softies, but I'm not repulsed by it either.

    Now, the lack of information on their website bothers me. It suggests they didn't quite do enough "learning", or that they simply aren't trying to cater to the enthusiast. No case size? No info on the movement? C'mon...that tells me you're still approaching this from a "jewelry" come-from. And for $2K, I want a watch that's a watch....not something that's trading on some success had in the diamond business.

    Them's my thoughts in a nutshell. It ain't bad, but it ain't gonna compel me to send in my money.

    Culet sounds too close for comfort to an Italian word ("culetto") for "little butt"... the "Automatiq" spelling instead of "automatic" or "automatique" (French) tremendously grinds my gears. It would be a giant pass for me just for this, never mind the Hublot / AP RO mix n mash that this watch seems to go for & the $2k price tag. It is just as far away as possible from my cup of tea. But to each his own.

    "automatique", has been oiling my gears on my Lucien Piccard for quite a spell.
