#1 Post by Jet » Sat Mar 09, 2019 3:31 pm

Hey guys, wound up getting a raise at work and decided to buy myself this guy. Any comments on the 853 or the pelleton winding System? Im loving them right now, anyway here’s the watch.

I have never seen one of these in person so I have no first hand experience with this watch.. I have worked on a ton of Seikos that use a similar auto system and it is quite efficient
There are some decent youtube videos showing the pellaton winding system in action
Congrats on a nice watch!
