Ophion OPH 786 Velos

Last however not least, the new Ophion OPH 786 Velos . Indeed, this is the most costly model in our choice, and at only north of EUR 2,500, it isn’t as such an available watch… Well, until you comprehend what’s the watch truly is. No Miyota or Seiko development here, no Hong Kong-sourced parts. The new Ophion is a somewhat remarkable interpretation of “accessible haute horlogerie”. In the first place, it has another case, with a plan that may appear to be natural. Undoubtedly, the cases are fabricated by Voutilainen himself, with the mark exclusively welded tear hauls. Second, it highlights multi-layer dials, with slanted rings, applied Breguet numerals, carefully formed hands and, on certain models, CNC-machined guilloché designs. At long last, inside is a 5-day hand-twisted development by Soprod, with exceptionally formed scaffolds enhanced with cleaned angles and hand-pounded adornment. Attempt to think about one more watch at that cost, with a particularly level of execution…
