    I have several Y&B with this movement, and they're all very fine watches
    Sounds impressive. Too bad I don't like their styling much, at least what I see in current production, and the rectangular ones specifically are much bigger than what I'm after, besides the style (I have smallish wrists )
    JDM FTW

    My 2 ultimate grails are VFM and TOTC.
    A good read is like medicine for the brain.

    Maybe a bit of a rule breaker, this one, but I am quite taken with my Seals Model C.

    They're generally quite… generous on the wrist indeed




    Very nice watch, though.




    The current line is not the best one indeed… Ambre was mostly focused on YEMA reissues for the past 2 (3 ?) years… Yonger should come back with more interesting designs in the near future

    Thanks, but would rather stick to an ubiquitous Japanese or Swiss movt. for less complications (pun-intented ). German would be nice too but not within budget...I think).

    Dude...lemme just say, your photography skills are way up there with the best. I think you could make even a 5$ watch look like a million bucks.

    I was reading the background information on this firm, and the proprietor's Boillot surname caught my eye. So then I googled Morteau, France, and it turns out to be in Burgundy. Of course, the Boillots are well know winemakers (not watchmakers) in Burgundy, so it's interesting to see that not all members of the family went into the family business!

    If you’re into the minimalist style then have a second look into the Kemmner tonneau.
    If interested, where are you from ?

    This is was my first "nice" watch and I still love it. Maybe a bit more than your standard affordable, they actually go for a lot less than retail on the used market (unfortunately for me since I own one).
