San Martin?

Post by Mellons »

Anyone got one of these bronze homages? Are they an interesting base for a build?

I’ve owned a Seiko homage from them and they are really nice.

This looks really nice too! CG is “Dumbo” reminiscent.

If the description is accurate, it’s a domed sapphire.

I have a sterile IWC version from them. No complaints.

Good site here for a range of their offerings

Sn068 looms pretty robust, nice bracelet with ratcheting clasp. Option for selitta movement also...

6105 build looks v interesting...

He's in some watch groups on FB, good guy, haven't heard anything bad about his quality, in fact quite the opposite. San Martin has an actual site as well.
