Corgeut Black Bay Homage Review

Post by Emilio »

The movement is a Miyota 8215, a non-hacking twenty-one (21) jewel three-hand with date movement with a uni-directional winding system (left rotation) with an accuracy of -20 to +40 seconds per day (depending on the piece you get), and a power reserve of over 40 hours.

The rotor sounds as loud as the ones used on Seiko 5 sport watches. Not too loud, not completely quiet.

The case has an optimal brush finish without imperfections mixed with nicely polished surfaces.

Case diameter: 41mm without crown.
THICKNESS: 12.5 mm

The lug creases are spot on.

It's rated for everyday use water resistant (100 m) and It takes 22mm straps.

The bezel has 90 clicks and has a bit of play.

I have this. With some silicone grease on the case back and crown gaskets, can confirm it's at least waterproof enough to go swimming in a 3ft deep kids pool.😁

It is! but I sold mine some time ago.

I have another Corgeut model I can try with (the GMT version).

Around 140$ or less. Got mine in a deal for 80.

They are fun although the movement is a bit noisy.

Always wondered if a drop of some movement oil would fix that [mention]Yoda[/mention] would be able to tell us.
