    Thoughts on Mecchaniche Veneziane

    Considering buying one of their "Redentore" watches via Amazon, and wanted to solicit thoughts pro/con on the Redentore line, or on their quality, in general.

    Here are some specs/info on the Redentore from the MV webpage: http://www.meccanicheveneziane.it/redentore/

    List price is $419 Euro.

    TIA!

    I stopped reading on the site when I came across the term 'General Specifics', an oxymoron if there ever was one.
    Some days it's just not worth chewing through the restraints

    What parts exactly are handcrafted by skilled artisans ?

    Accuracy of -20 ~ +40 s/ day does not seem worth striving for.

    I've backed the Arsenale on Kickstarter, they look pretty handsome and are a half price for early birds. Am used to hyperbole by watch companies, they use pretty standard movements but graft on making them look good.

    What is handcrafted by skilled artisans? Hm... the strap and the box? The price??

    Movement is a Miyota 821A. Solid but nothing to write home about.

    They look pretty good. I'm familiar with the Miyota 9015 for micro's and usually consider the other Miyota's used in small brands to be a step down, but I wouldn't let that be a deal breaker.

    I've backed the Arsenale on Kickstarter because I love the look of the watch, and I think it's an excellent value for the price.

    500 eur for miyota with changed rotor seems overprice
