Love this watchReview by Geoff Davis
- I purchased the first run of this model limited to 500 .... A beautiful timepiece and superb workmanship. It gets noticed regularly by watch aficionados who usually think it's a much more expensive watch by a more famous Swiss manufacturer. I have my son's name engraved on the back as I'm hoping its quality will allow it to be passed onto the next generation.
Needs a Softer Rubber StrapReview by JLeeMD
- First the good: beautifully machined and finished titanium case and matching buckle. Design is expressive but sober enough I felt comfortable wearing to work (I'm a physician). Effective AR treatment gives the dial a stark vivid look which never gets old. A couple of issues: the rubber strap is stiff. It doesn't gently curve around the wrist resulting in the sides of my wrist feeling squeezed. Also, the interior bezel isn't precisely aligned but close enough that it doesn't bother. Overall a unique, expressive yet sober watch that would've been near perfect but for the stiff rubber strap.
A beautiful piece of engineeringReview by Denys Nevozhai
This is my first Swiss Made watch and I'm absolutely happy with everything about it. It came in a great big box with lots of papers that make you feel like you bought something unique and expensive especially considering it's serial number on the back. The watch is just the right size for my skinny wrist, though I was thinking it will look too small, as I tried 48mm watches which looked ok too, but this size is just perfect. The watch attracts attention everywhere, and people with Omegas on their wrists stare at it with undisguised interest. I couldn't find anything comparable to Makaira in terms of design, components, materials for this money. And it's COSC certified chronometer!
I had certain problems with ordering the watch as I'm in China and use VPN, so I contacted support a couple of times and always got immediate response, so I rate customer support as excellent.
Chris Ward, thank you for allowing me to afford a piece of Swiss happiness )
