Looks nice

Morgan M. (Boston, US)
Great product, mediocre instructions

Super good quality, great tools. However, the process to put the hands on was not documented very well, so I had some issues figuring that out.

Fast delivery and good quality components.

My first kit

Great quality, the watch kit and tool kit had everything that I needed. The printed instructions that came in the box told me almost nothing. I made the mistake of using my phone to open the QR code for further instructions and missed some important links that I found later when I opened the site on my computer. I am awaiting the parts to build my second watch from individual components. Nice way to get started watch building.
Thanks, Steve

Pretty fun project

Very nice introduction to moding/watchmaking, and the final product looks very good as well. That seconds hand was a !@#! to put on though :)
