Truly a remarkable timepiece. Here the watch simply acts to frame the true essence and star of this timepiece, the hand-winding mechanical movement. With every second this watch is a balletic flow of gears, and springs that act in unison to deliver a truly incredible working piece of wearable art.

Flinders and his crew mapped the Australian coastline, studying plants and animals along the way. The voyage of the HMS Investigator from 1801 – 1803, shed new light on the natural history of Australia. Aboard the Investigator was Ferdinand Bauer (1760-1826) who was appointed natural history artist for the voyage. Franz and Ferdinand Bauer achieved great acclaim and contributed immensely to the study, record and understanding of botany and nature. Stunningly precise works that were almost photo realistic in their accuracy were their hallmark. This range of mechanical timepieces created in tribute is no less stunning and intricate in their detail and workmanship. A fluid round case with an exhibition caseback has but slimmest frame to mark out the minutes exposing the full glory of the complex and beautifully machined individual parts that create this stunning timepiece from Earnshaw. Beautifully honest in its representation of the mechanics of time – this is truly the timepiece for the connoisseur of horology. The watch is strapped with a genuine leather strap tanned in Italy and offers a luxurious accompaniment to an already outstanding timepiece.
Gorgeous watch but loud ticking sound
The watch is beautifully designed. I love how it looks. The only thing is that the ticking sound is quite loud. I can hear the gear ticking in a quiet room from two metres away although it's a subtle sound. Some people like their mechanical watches making loud ticking sounds, but for someone who is sensitive to noises, it can be a bit irritating. I'll probably get used to it after a while but I would still have personally preferred a quieter watch, so 4 stars.

Mycket nöjd med denna vackra klocka. Och leveransen gick enligt planerat.
Watches received are an art piece
Had some issues with the winding of the watch. Contacted CSO. Maybe there was some miscommunication on how to operate the watch but it was resolved thereafter. Had to pay another amount as the said watches had no issues after being sent back to check. Winding manual was then provided for us to follow. Nevertheless, not our first purchase. Will continue to support this brand!
given as a gift
Given to someone as a gift, who seemed to appreciate it, but otherwise not to my taste as it looks a bit gaudy and toy-like. Purchase and delivery was very fast.
