I saw this watch on Youtube where The Urban Gentry did a review of it. It's a ressurected French Dive Watch Brand that went defunct in the 1970s called Le Forban and their first model is called the Malouine, named after the inhabitants of St. Malo, a famous French town for corsairs:
They some things right on this:
* Sapphire crystal
* 39mm diameter with a 45mm lug to lug
* Good hand set and dial
Price is a little excessive at 490 euros.
And they really screwed the pooch with the movement, which is a Miyota 8215. I wouldn't wish this noisy, uni-directional and non-hacking relic of a movement on my worst enemy.
I've noticed that quite a few French microbrands use the 8215 and I wish they would stop it. How much extra is it to get a Miyota 90xx?
Anyway, promising revival brand with some great design choices let down by high pricing for a sub-standard movement.
