New Accutron Gemini

Post by mrneddles » Mon Jun 18, 2012 11:35 am

Gemini Classic features the new 63B156, a 26-jewel self-winding mechanical timepiece using the Sellita SW200 movement within a 42mm stainless steel case. Note the guilloche embossed pattern weaving across the dial. This French engraving technique, dating back centuries, symbolizes precision and intricacy. Revolutionary at the time, classically handsome today.

Now that is truly stunning...and maybe, just maybe, with that SW 200 movement, it might even be affordable...? :bounce:

The gray Accutron Gemini chronos of about four years ago (those killer SWI deals) remain one of the two watches of recent vintage I really wish I owned. My wife owns an Accutron and it remains one of the finest piece either of us own. This new model displayed is stunning, and I'm eager to see more of whatever the Accutron line releases. Great, elegant, no-nonsense watches. What's not to like?

Love this one. Only to make it even better would be some sort of contrast between the hands and dial.
I found that silver on silver is difficult to read. A sliver of SLN or furnace blueing??

$850 on Amazon? No Thank You

Here is another version.

Gemini Unitas features the 65A102, a classic manual-wind mechanical timepiece with an ETA 6498-1 17-jewel movement. The 42mm stainless steel case is balanced with rose-gold finish ion-plated crown and accents. A distinct design for the discerning gentleman.
