Pretty expensive for a Russian movement.
A lot cheaper 24hr's out there.

I like single hand watches. I have one that I haven't worn in months I am going to have to put it in this weeks rotation. I like this one would prefer a black strap but that's an easy fix. Unfortunately the size would keep me from buying one 42mm is a little under what I like to wear.

I'm sorry but no. Perhaps a conversation starter but awkward to read and a hefty price.

There's a black leather strap included, not only an orange Isofrane. Thanks for the feedback. The price is not that high, maybe if you compare it to the usual suspects on Kickstarter (Asian productions). These are handmade by a Dutch artisan, personally numbered / date engraved and so on. But I understand you think it is expensive.

Thanks for the feedback. I disagree that it would be expensive. You can't compare this very limited watch to Asian 24-hour or quartz movements. Have you seen the speclist? The sum of all parts is higher than the price I'm offering the Periscope for. Only 100 are handbuilt (in Holland, not China).

24 hour concept is cool and nicely differentiated from the usual sub-a-like dross.

I'd ditch the Isofrane. That strap has been done too death, is overpriced, and has no relation to 24 hour watches. Look at Bonetto Cinturini (who produce the Isofrane) for some better styled, more relevant, better value alternatives.

The movement sounds a bit sketchy.

What will these watches cost?

Now, why would you think I'm comparing it to an Asian one when i said pretty high for a Russian movement.
I'm comparing it to Russian 24 hour watches and others that use that movement.
Limited edition means nothing to me.

I like the look and I have tried a few single hand watches over the years. They are unique and certainly make good conversation starters. This one looks good and at the right price I would consider one if I was in the market. I like the fact that the Isofrane matches the watch accents. I think that gives it a finished look.
