    These are fantastic.

    I have a preference for the mark 1, which seems to wear a bit larger than 34 mm. The dial on mine isn't perfect, but in-person, I would say it's pretty easy on the eyes. Some of the other examples in this thread are really beautiful.

    Quick question. For the mk1, is the original case finish polished on all sides?

    Nice straps on the FS pair. Where are they from if I may ask?

    They are really supple leather. I was told they were custom designed by @vujen and his friend and they have SMD on the inside. They are really nice. Thank you!

    Yes exactly, it's a small production I've made with a friend of mine. Very soft leather. :)

    Happy to see they landed safely, Erric!

    Hi OF!
    Here a new arrival to my collection, I was looking for it and now it's on my wrist. I'm testing it since a couple of days and keep the time and the charge lasts perfectly.
    It is a Perseo for FE (Ferrovie dello Stato) I found from the assigeen. It was assigned as you can see from the caseback number and FS logo.
    The movement should be based on Unitas 6325.
    Please tell me your opinions about the watch. Thank you in advance.

    I think you'll have to wait for our published railway author to comment but I can honestly say that's the first Perseo railway watch that I've seen and liked - the satin finishes and the case edges are really nice on that one.

    Apologies if this has been covered, but are the dials the same size on Mk1 vs Mk2 and just the case sizes are different?

    Size is the same I believe, but the dials differ slightly so swapping them out doesn’t work. Unless you don’t care about originality of course.

    Finally managed to complete the set. The MK2 is probably my favourite.
