Except maybe another El Primero. Seriously, just the story of how this watch design came to be is totally incredible and would make a great suspense novel or feature film. It is easily as interesting as "Flash of Genius" and probably more so. IMHO, El Primero is the quintessential mechanical chronograph, bar none.

Great price on a fine timepiece! Ashford is great to deal with as well, picked up the Striking 10th in RG last year and enjoying it!

looking at this piece for awhile...a most excellent price the only weird thing is that I have purchased more then several watches from ashford and every one of them had a dead battery including a michele piece I bought for my daughter several weeks back... this is a risk as you want to ensure that movement is continuously" on" to preserve it's integrity...especially since it is an ashford and not the manufactures warranty...so I am left with a little apprehension with spending over $1k for any watch from ashford....IMHO!

That does happen. Sometimes though it may seem to have a dead battery, but it is just in sleep mode with a special crown insert to preserve the battery. I bet if you contacted Ashford, they would replace the battery for you. (refund the cost of taking it to a local jeweler). I have had gotten several quartz watches from them and all had good batteries. So you may just have been unlucky.

THIS watch is mechanical, so no battery to worry about. Now as far as keeping the movement on all the time, there is some debate on the matter, but I am from the camp that believes the opposite. Keeping the watch on all the time (via a watch winder) just wears down the mechanism faster - thereby requiring service more often. Service is also more expensive for a chronograph. So, I would only wind it when you want to wear it and if it is only occassionally, that might extend the service intervals by years.

I bought a movado for roughly $500 and the battery died shortly after and the bezel fell off. I called Movado and their 3 year warranty does not cover crap quality. Never again will I buy from that trash company.
