Laventure's Sous Marine

Post by AtomicTom » Tue May 15, 2018 9:58 am

Does everyone remember Laventure's Marine from not that long ago?

Seems like they have a brand new diver called the Sous Marine now.

With this watch having a 41mm polished satin, and mocroblasted stainless steel,
or Bronze CuSn8, 300M WR, AR coated ultra-domed "Superdome" sapphire crystal,
120 click unidirectional rotating bezel, sandwich dials with with brushed, and
lacquered gradient green, blue, or black upper section, and lower "vintage"
beige photoluminescent coated lower section seen through circular cut-outs.
Along with leather, and rubber straps, and the ETA 2824-2 behind a beautiful
case-back.

Have a look guys...

Ha 3600CHF - a little ambitious, no?

Not bad. Proprietary bands?? Or at least difficult to match. Pricing seems as noted above ambitious.

Not bad looking dials but I don't get the 'Nautilus ' bump on case. Seems like being different for no particular reason and the curved case sides do not flow with angular lug design.
We are getting picky with our Micros.

I like it and the finishing seems nice but the price is nuts. $3,200 for an upstart with a 2824? Can buy a new Tudor with an in-house movement for that. They should have learned from Monta's initial mis-step.

Looks great, at least the pictures are really well done. But yeah, it looks more of a micro to me and the price is definitely way out of reach.

It's funny guys, didn't honestly realize the price with these. :oops: Just saw the watch,
and was thinking...Wow, those are cool !!! :grin: But you're right as usual guys. Imagine
if these were somewhere between maybe $500-$700 ! That would make them look
even better !

Seems the price has dropped over $1000 off. I just got a newsletter email.

Monta deal all over again?

I have not seen this watch in person, but you really think it’s that overpriced at current pricing?
I agree it was silly at $3600, but $2300 looks to be more in line for what it is; top eta movement and IF finishing and details look as good in person.

Agree. To me personally, no brand name no more than 1K for any 3 hander micro

Bremont is one of the few that successfully transcended this price point, although they brought new things to the table.... case construction, hardened steel, etc...
