The watch looks absolutely beautiful. The crown and the other screw down buttons work very nicely. The bracelet has screwed bracelet links which makes it a lot easier to modify the size on your own.
However I have some minor complaints but the watch is still very good value for money.
- The second hand ticking noise is quite audible, even from 2 feet away in a quiet home environment (I might take it to watch maker to fix that)
- One rubber gasket of the screw down buttons has come off / broke instantly
- The Lume is extremely weak, especially on the hands
- A 5 or 10 ATM water resistance on this watch would be phenomenal
Great watch with quality parts and good weight. Very pleased to have a classic look at a great price
Firstly congratulations to Tomas for the great service as distributors for Alpha watches. Secondly the homage Daytona cream dial based on a 6421 Daytona from 1968 is excellent. It looks great and comes in a nice pouch well wrapped up. The open case movement looks stunning and when you wind it, it even has a stop on the wind so you can't overwind it. Some reviews mention the bracelet being poor, and maybe so however it is totally in keeping with the Daytona of 1968. The bracelet feels the same on both. The execution of the dial is perfect. The cream dial has a little more colour that's all. I love the fact it has drilled holes in the lugs like it should. The chrono screw down pusher work well. The chrono has not got a fully sweeping movement but neither has the original and it just adds to the charm. The reset is very quick and precise. Overall there wasn't any need for the screwdown pushers as that is the only thing what immediately sets it apart from the Daytona 6421. However they are a nice thing to have and certainly for the price of the watch. Timekeeping seems very good at the moment and it wears super comfortably.
So if you like this sort of thing, absolutely buy one. Amazing value, looks and service provided by Tomas and his team. Will definitely buy again.
It is of high quality. I will buy this watch again!
Beautiful watch. Thanks very much
