    I think the 30 minute counter is just a function of the movement that is used in the modern interpretation.

    600 or so bucks. When I want to wear a modern Uni. I’d love to see Etienne have a go at a higher price point with a Swiss movement.

    Depends on the quality and “vintage like” feeling on the wrist to me...

    ready to spend a few K€ if It feels good !

    BALTIC are really great looking watches...

    For the money I don't think these can be beat

    And I for one have zero interest in these carbon copy reissues..

    Baltic looks really nice for the price point. Although they might want QC to review the dials, check the running seconds register on this one, Image is straight off their website as of right now. yikes.

    This might be a stupid question, but why does it say "Manuel" under the Bicompax? Is that french for manual? If so, doesn't really make sense, as it would be the only word in french on the entire watch front and back? unless I'm missing something.

    Not to get too derailed, but my nephew was asking for inexpensive watch recommendations, and I thought Dan Henry also looked interesting, at around half price compared to Baltic. They are using mecaquartz mvmts, not mechanical, and I haven't studied either brand in depth, but I think it's cool there are interesting and more reasonably prices watches around.

    I believe it is correct ...Manuel. As you can see with @jross98 post ... dials are fine. Prototype dial I suspect. I e mailed them.

    Yes
    No contest vs the first version. I am selling my original black gilt version on eBay as we speak for this reason.

    The dan Henry's are great.. But there is no contest when you have both in hand. I wish the Baltic had a better movement but it's in a completely different class than the dan henry.

    So, on Sept. 18th, Massena posted a picture of Françoise Hardy in a racecar as a teaser-pic for the new release. So, does anyone know which watch(es) she owned?

    In the movie "Grand Prix" there were some real race car drivers in the cast - Jack Brabham, Jochen Rindt, etc.

    Looks like the counters are tilted.
