Ooh man, check those out LA ! 馃槻馃槑馃槈

Watches, and brands like these take your breath away to tell the truth.
I mean just the level they take watchmaking to is extraordinary. Where
the line between watch, and art becomes blurred just enough that you
really don't even care about the time any longer. ..I mean it's about
time, but maybe more about the sheer beauty of the instrument telling
it some times. 馃檪

What's so great too is you have this exceptional very futuristic feel with
these right?! On the one hand there is that Gerald Genta vibe. However,
the unbelievable finishing, as well as wonderful Sunmao dial of Master
Chen's mesmerizes. ..Actually every square millimeter does to tell the
truth. ..Even the movement which is underneath it all is an off the charts
masterpiece.

Cannot thank you enough for the look as well as report about these !!!

That's interesting. Thanks for sharing that @Lawyer Aidroos !

I must say though, the only thing that causes me to pause is calling the brand "Atelier". It's the French word for "workshop". A little bit of "cultural appropriation" happening there ;).

Likely it was Robin Tallendier (a frenchman) that had that idea though...

You are correct Sir. I would never shell out close to 3K on this. Movement is a replica of ETA 2824-2. It's the pure watch craftsmanship I admire here. Excellent bracelet and case for the price. I would have liked to see an original movement in this though. I know seagull and another brand in China are making high grade movements, but I don't have much data on it. Then again there are Swiss pieces with exceptional heritage which out class almost everything out there commercially.
It's out of my league to enter a race for 400K USD per watch segment, so my stance is that of an observer.
